Coldwell Banker Global Luxury - Brookline, MA

This English Revival residence was built in 1885 from a design by Peabody & Stearns. The property's location boasts ready access to Brookline Village, local universities, hospitals and downtown Boston, as well as major transportation routes and the MBTA. On the opposite side of Warren Street is the Brookline Reservoir with its mile-long walking and jogging trail. The home is set back from the street on a 0.97-acre lot that affords optimum privacy and includes sweeping lawns, magnificent mature trees and a wilderness area. The grounds were initially landscaped by Olmsted Associates, the firm founded by Frederick Law Olmsted, renowned architect of the Boston Park System and many other famous landscapes nationwide. The home is equally generous in space, style and architectural details. There are three living/family rooms, two dining rooms, two eat-in kitchens, and 8 bedrooms (most with fireplaces). The home also provides a guest suite with an additional two bedrooms and a sitting room.
