      Nestled on the slope of Fisher Hill, this extraordinary property offers views of Brookline Reservoir. One of the oldest homes in the area, the house features period details from Massachusetts' first centuries: the beamed family room in the rear ell dating to 1680, the Colonial front rooms added on in the 1730's and a major renovation/expansion by noted architect, John Hubbard Sturgis in1850. Grounds are a mix of sweeping lawn, perennial gardens and rare specimen trees. An adjoining green corridor of fields and woodlands are preserved in perpetuity by a conservation restriction on the two acres fronting Boylston Street. In recent years,a few major structural and system renovations were done but more work is needed to bring this house up to 21st century luxury home standard. This is an unique opportunity for a buyer with vision to renovate/preserve a very special home with protective covenant on a very special site surrounded by protected land.
