Own a piece of American history! This Georgian Colonial was built in the mid-18th century by a member of the Hammond family and was later owned by John Lowell, a Judge in the U.S. District Court. The house has undergone a number of alterations over the years and for the past 40-plus years has been the beloved home of just one family. The setting is bucolic with an oversized parcel of 1.36 acres of beautiful flat lawns, mature specimen trees and flowering gardens. This property offers the serenity of country living while public transportation, the shops and restaurants at “The Street” and “Chestnut Hill Square” are all within walking distance.
The house offers three plus bedrooms, two full and one half bath, six fireplaces and an attached two-car garage. Additional bedrooms available with the addition of a bathroom.
Beautiful original floors and moldings and wonderful southern exposure contribute to the character and charm of the property.
The Longwood Cricket Club, Boston College, The Chestnut Hill School, Beaver Country Day School and Brimmer & May School are also within walking distance.
It's hard to believe this “country” property still exists in Old Chestnut Hill.
