We’ve seen some big sales in Boston-Edison this year, with both the Motown Mansion and the Charles T. Fisher Mansion on Boston Boulevard snagging over $1 million at sale. The Briggs Mansion (or “Stone Hedge”) on the same block is pending sale. One street over on Chicago Boulevard, the houses are a little more manageable, but quite elegant. This 5,100-square-foot home looks like it’s been cared for for years, and it has a breathtaking backyard. It’s listing for $679,900.
The home has six bedrooms, three full and two half baths, a butler’s pantry, a library, and a lot of living space in the basement (we love the sailboat motif). The kitchen is spacious and has plenty of room for storage and multiple eating areas. As beautiful as the house is, the backyard has to be a big seller. It’s landscaped with a bridge, benches, greenery, and it has indoor/outdoor spaces for entertaining. Lovely.
