Welcome to Cheston House, built in 1890, recently restored and thoughtfully renovated by the current owners in partnership with Tallulah and Bird and Regan Construction, with incredible attention to timeless materials and stunning details. Originally named for one of Chestnut Hill Hospital's first doctors, this stately stone, Queen Anne style home, designed by Cope & Stewardson with a later addition by Brockie & Hastings, sits on a breathtakingly landscaped, flat .78 acre lot in a wonderful 'walk into town' location. It features many magnificent, original architectural designs including sun-filled leaded windows, 10 foot ceilings, gabled dormers, arched casements, massive moldings and beams, original oak floors and wainscoting, 7 fireplaces with original mantels, grand, main staircase within the side turret and an expansive covered wrap around porch leading to spacious terraces. Beautifully maintained and re-imagined, this 6 bedroom, 4 1/2 bath residence offers a fabulous, artistically crafted new gourmet kitchen with Tallulah and Bird cabinetry, Calcutta gold marble countertops, BlueStar 48' 8-burner gas range, BlueStar refrigerator, hand-made Moroccan Zellige tile and Waterworks fixture, with endless views of the gardens and an effortless flow from each room to the next. It embraces modern living styles throughout while preserving the integrity of its original design at every turn. The expansive primary suite with sitting room, also features a fully renovated vintage-style white marble bath with soaking tub and oversized frameless glass shower. Surrounding gardens, full of specimen plantings, were featured on the 2006 Historical Society tour. This treasure is majestically located on a coveted corner of one of Chestnut Hill's most prestigious streets, within an easy walking distance to the park, wonderful shops, restaurants, trains and more. Move right in and enjoy!
