Built circa 1645 with east and west facing wings added on in the 1930s, this historic residence, known as The Hammond House, features 18" wide floorboards, chestnut beamed ceilings, and a stunning 35' x 23' living room with a 10' ceiling. Enjoy the library with a 8 ' wide fireplace, and host parties, concerts, and meetings in the east facing wing. Between the two wings and accessible from library and kitchen, is a large bluestone patio overlooking well-landscaped grounds. An arched breezeway connects the house to the oversized two-car garage. The Chestnut Hill “T” stop is nearby as well as cinema, shops, and restaurants. And for those who yearn for open space, hiking trails at Hammond Pond Reservation and the Deer Park at Webster Conservation Area are also nearby.
