Century-Old Boston Edison House Snapped Up Quickly

New, 8 comments

Within the first few hours of showing this renovated 105-year-old Boston Edition house, the broker received multiple offers above the asking price of $289,900, and after just 16 days on the market, a sale is now pending. The house was renovated by Sam Szabla, a local developer/designer whose work has inspired some heated discussions among Curbed readers before.

This 2,189-square-foot house dates to 1910 and features unique built-ins plus a Pewabic tile fireplace, along with contemporary updates. The bathrooms look ridiculously luxurious, and there's a room for everything: butler's pantry, laundry room, den, two sunrooms, a wet bar, and a reflection room (reflection room?).

The grey and white kitchen features a big farmhouse sink, butcher block counters, and pretty cabinets. Some of the rooms, including the dining room, are covered in bold wallpaper, and French doors connect many of the downstairs rooms. The bedrooms aren't huge compared to a lot of other houses in this neighborhood, but that also means lower heating costs.

Detailed landscaping and a gorgeous exterior add to the value. Security system with video also included. But really, the pictures speak for themselves—click through to the full listing for many more.
