Overview

One of two exceptional residences on Grant Street, this historic home has a rich history. The original structure was found on Linnaean Street and believed to be the home renovated for the gardener of the Harvard Botanical Gardens. The home was then moved to this location in 1865 before the city raised the streets in the Riverside neighborhood. In 2015, the house was raised up two feet and a new foundation was added with full height living area below. The enchanting classic colonial exterior has a canopy of mature trees and is surrounded by mature plantings. The interior is warm and inviting with modern comforts while respecting the integrity of the building's history. The main living area incorporates an open living room, dining room and custom kitchen. The second floor features a master bedroom with vaulted ceiling, spa-style en suite bath, walk-in closet and small guest room or study. The lower level has a media room, third bedroom and bathroom. Radiant, heated floors throughout and a driveway snowmelt system with driveway and parking for 1 car add to the cozy luxury of this home.
