This spectacular 82 year-old waterfront Georgian Revival is a stunning model of Brookline's rich, vintage residential real estate market and the perfect illustration of successfully uniting yesterday's grandeur with today's modern conveniences and lifestyles. Many of its period roots and detailed enrichments have been preserved or tastefully enhanced, such as rich dark woods, oversized and decorative windows, soaring ceilings, intricate moldings and traditional built-ins, and while a picture can say a thousand words, this unique property must be physically toured to absorb its true magic.
Seven fireplaces have been fabricated throughout its substantial 9,581 square foot floor plan with four on the first level, in the 18 x 27 square foot living room, the 18 x 31 square foot dining area, the 18 x 12 square foot family room and the 15 x 19 square foot library. This floor also offers a brilliantly renovated gourmet kitchen accessorized with premier ingredients, including upgraded cabinets, granite surfaces, stainless steel appliances, an oversized center island with seating and marble flooring.
The second level hosts four generously-sized bedrooms with a luxurious 18 x 20 square foot fireplaced master suite equipped with a walk-in closet, dressing room and deluxe bath, a 16 x 14 square foot suite, a 12 x 18 square foot fireplaced bedroom and an 18 x 21 square foot bedroom. The third story takes full advantage of its considerable footprint with four additional rooms, three bedrooms, one with a fireplace, and a 13 x 17 square foot fireplaced game room.
And speaking of games, this property has all levels of recreation and leisure covered with an indoor pool with a retractable roof, a tennis court and over three quarters of an acre of professionally landscaped grounds. It also offers a lovely carriage house with a three-car garage and potential bonus living space on its second floor.
In addition to its solid, durable foundation, this home has also received many significant renovations in the kitchen and baths and valuable updates in the plumbing and electrical systems and newly installed windows. This property was an impressive residence in its day and continues to proudly serve its residents today with its timeless style and beauty.
