Building & History

Designed by John Hasty in 1880 for William Haskett Wood, a local lumber dealer, and re-designed by Mark Boyes-Watson in 2010, this magnificent Queen Anne offers unparalleled character, modern amenities, and a prime mid-Cambridge location on a beloved street. The meticulous, award-winning restoration of the building’s old world design is evident in every architectural detail, both inside and out, while stunning new enhancements mimic the vernacular of the historic house. The collective result is six inspiring condominium homes that remain true to Cambridge’s rich past yet provide well-designed interiors and custom conveniences for luxurious living in its lively present.
