Beacon Hill Mansion Renovation

Boston, Massachusetts
Completion date: 2019
Construction cost: $13 million
Size: 26,000 square feet

The classical Revival townhouse at the foot of Beacon Hill that once was bounded by houses on both sides, became a corner house in the 1950s with the construction of the riverside Storrow Drive, its off ramp and Arthur Fiedler foot bridge connecting to the famous maestros Hatch Shell venue on the Charles River. The demolition of its neighbors left a blank side wall, on the home, that had been used by a local college as its administration building for many years. Its purchase by a developer allowed us the opportunity to convert the 18,000 square foot townhouse into 3 grand homes, and fenestrate the blank wall to seem as if it had always been. With only a couple of intact rooms in the house, the alterations required a complete reconfiguration of the structure, and restoration of all the remaining. Traditionally inspired architectural interiors were desired by the potential buyers of these homes in this 2005 renovation, all done to complement the original grandeur and stylistic intent, but with all new systems and features.
