1895 Victorian Home in Wellesley Park, Massachusetts

Dorchester, Massachusetts, United States

Previous listing details: “Wellesley Park is an idyllic enclave of 28 ‘Painted Lady’ Victorians, 1 of 3 surviving gaslight parks in Boston whose formal planting beds are reminiscent of the Public Garden and are maintained by the City. #27 is loaded with cottage charm and architectural detail inside and out with a hidden garden of its own. The entry hall features quarter-sawn oak panelling, a built-in settle, a parquet floor and a three-storey decorative stair. A ‘spindle work’ surround leads to a sunny living room with a window bay, stained glass and a large built-in bookcase. Pocket doors open to the music room with an inlaid floor border and a wood-burning fireplace. The kitchen overlooks a garden terrace and has a dining area, butler’s pantry and a half bath. The master has a window bay and dressing room wall. Two additional bedrooms, a pleasant home office overlooks the park, and a family bath are on the second floor. Two more bedrooms plus pre-plumbed future bath are on the third. Shawmut T is 3 blocks away.” Learn the full history of Wellesley Park on Dorchester Atheneum.
