And as for great Boston views to wake up to every day, it doesn’t get much better than a view of Louisbourg Square on Beacon Hill. An area known for its history, uniqueness, prestige and price, it has been home to many notable residents past and present, including little Women writer Louisa May Alcott, Contagion Author Robin Cook, John Kerry and Teresa Heinz fame. It’s a beautiful sight to behold in every season, and one that – when combined with all the amenities 92 Mount Vernon St. has to offer, including a private garden and greenhouse – provides a luxurious (and envy-inducing) living experience in the heart of The Hub.
Built in 1835, this gorgeous Greek Revival style townhouse has 6,876 square feet. Inside you will discover luxurious finishes and spacious proportions amidst the elegantly renovated residence, which includes 6 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms (5 full, 2 partial), as well as an elevator. The entry level provides an attractive introduction to the home. There’s a formal living room perfect for entertaining and a library perfect for quieter activities, along with cozy fireplaces, pocket doors, gorgeous architectural moldings, and a nearly 12-foot plaster ceiling featuring intricate décor. There is also a large dining kitchen with private views of the garden, located adjacent to the formal dining room with a large butler’s kitchen nearby.
Meanwhile, the entire second floor is devoted to a master suite, designed for complete comfort with a luxurious bathroom, sitting room and abundant built-in wardrobes. Upstairs is a two-person bed, two-bath/rental unit with a two-story artist window showcasing views of Louisbourg Square. It goes perfectly with the roof which also highlights the city view.
For fun outdoors, the private garden offers you a peaceful slice of paradise. (Side note: an enclosed greenhouse is an equally quiet place.) The owners also enjoy a formal entrance from Acorn Street – one of the most photographed alleys in the United States – along with the obvious advantages of living on Beacon Hill – great shops and restaurants, walking and jogging trails, museums, a park and more. When you want to venture beyond the neighbourhood, public transport is convenient and close by, while a weekend escape to the Cape is also easy, with a motorway nearby.
