The historic c.1889 Hughes House at 144 Randolph Avenue in Milton, Massachusetts began its life as a grand wedding gift. It was designed by architect William Ralph Emerson and built for J. Murray Forbes who gifted it to his newly wed daughter, Sarah, and her husband William Hastings Hughes. Today, the towering brick mansion sits on a large 4.72 acre property and still retains much of the original architectural detail as it did the day it was finished. There have been some changes to the exterior which you can spot and compare with the newer and historic photo below. Rolling lawns, wrap-around stone terraces, a beautiful glass vestibule, a grand staircase and living and dining rooms with fireplaces welcome you into this classic Colonial Revival home. The foyer transitions easily from formal to family living, offering entry to an oak-panelled library with fireplace and a cozy den. There is more than 7,300 square feet of space with quarter sawn oak floors, lovely crown mouldings, high ceilings and original mantels throughout. The two upper floors feature a spacious master suite and six additional light-filled bedrooms, all offering great views of the surrounding property. Additional features include garage parking for four vehicles and views of the Blue Hills. While viewing the photos keep an eye out for a scale model of Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello in one of the bedrooms!
