Living on one of the most scenic streets in Beacon Hill, with mature trees and gas lanterns on both sides of the street -- AND convenient to everything
Curling up in the cozy, private top floor bedroom and gazing out the slanted windows in the roof line
Sipping coffee or a glass of wine on the landscaped patio with custom lattice fencing – a unique urban oasis
Writing at your desk in the professionally designed, mahogany-paneled study
Gathering by the 1820s fireplace in the family room, with an original cast iron bread oven built into the hearth masonry – imagine the memories created here over nearly 2 centuries!

This charming townhouse is a Beacon Hill gem. Built in the 1820s, it retains many of its original historic features including wide pine floors, brick and beam architecture and six fireplaces. Situated on a quiet, tree-lined street, the home offers a flexible floor plan accommodating three to four bedrooms on five levels. The French country kitchen, recently renovated, features high-end appliances and refined cabinetry. A cozy dining nook is nearby, as is the family room, which leads to an exquisite landscaped patio. This level is ideal for family living and casual entertaining. The formal dining room is enhanced with a Shaker-style wood floor, a fireplace, plus a bay window overlooking the scenic street. The adjacent room is currently an en-suite bedroom offering the convenience of a main floor bedroom.
Up one level is the sun-filled, fireplaced living room, facing the street.
A handsome wood-paneled study is also on this level.
The master suite occupies the next floor, with its spacious dressing room, en-suite bath and two fireplaces.
At the top level is a bedroom and a generous storage space.
For added convenience of bringing in bikes, strollers, etc. there is a separate entrance from the sidewalk to the utility room.
Imagine all of this with close proximity to the Charles River, Massachusetts General Hospital, Logan airport, Whole Foods, the Financial District, public transportation and major roadways.
