The Property

Grand Queen Anne Colonial Revival style home located in a desirable neighborhood setting close to Newton, Brookline, and Boston College. Built in 1898 by Neil McKinnon for Miss Elizabeth G. Shepard, former owners of note include: importer, Francois A. Cellar; prominent real estate agent, Nelson Russell; and a former Spanish Ambassador.

Original stained glass windows, beautiful hardwood floors, original woodwork and moldings, tin ceilings, built-ins, ornate staircase, and six fireplaces are just some of the special details of this fifteen room property. The first level offers magnificent entertaining spaces including a banquet-size formal dining room and expansive center hall with fireplace. Situated on a corner lot with over eight parking spaces and a small yard, the home’s five-zone gas heating system was installed eight years ago and the roof and windows were replaced within the past 10 years. With over 6,000 square feet, including a finished basement and walk-up attic, this magnificent property offers many possible uses and could potentially be converted into a multi-unit property.
