The Federal Revival style home was built as the residence of Henry Davis sleeper, America&rsquo;s first interior designer. This fashionable purveyor of taste has garnered much fame for homes he did for clients, such as Joan Crawford, Douglas Fairbanks and the Vanderbilts, but also for one of his own homes, Beauport, the Gloucester Harbor mansion that is now a national historic landmark. To this day, and in thanks to subsequent owners who have faithfully renovated, restored and maintained&nbsp;the magnificent property, 90 Chestnut remains full of decorative flourishes chosen specifically by the nationally noted antiquarian, collector, and interior decorator.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The entire 6,576 square foot house is a historic treasure, yet remains timeless in its ability to cater to modern lifestyles. The gracious floor plan splendidly incorporates formal and informal living and entertaining areas and offers 5 sun-filled bedrooms and 5 1/2 bathrooms, all enhanced by a private elevator and spacious roof deck. Cleverly built-in storage and displays fill every nook and cranny of the home so that every inch serves an aesthetic and functional purpose. The floor plan also brings with it wonderful flexibility to be used as a single residence or two separate units&mdash;one a first and garden floor duplex, the other a 2nd, 3rd and 4th floor elevator triplex.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">One step in the door and it is apparent that this Flat of the Hill home was constructed and finished in the finest manner. A gorgeous mahogany&nbsp;paneled reception room with a&nbsp;leaded glass curios cabinet offers a glorious first impression as to what the rest of the home has to offer. Take the elevator or climb the stairs to the living room floor and you step right into the heart of the home that <img alt="" class="featured featured" src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.usmre.com/6119/blog/photo-1.aspx.jpeg" style="width: 400px; height: 267px; float: right; margin: 5px 10px;">is absolute elegance. This approximately 21&rsquo; by 39&rsquo; entertaining space is paneled floor-to-ceiling and features finely detailed carved pilasters and classical door casings. Built-ins abound, including bookcases, collectibles vitrines and a complete wet bar. A carefully lit oval skylight and corner fireplace finish this fine, perfectly symmetrical room.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Just beyond this living room is a home office or media suite complete with a bay-windowed seating area facing the hidden gardens of Beacon Hill. This space has its own half bath and a variegated marble fireplace depicting an Aesop&rsquo;s Fable, the Wolf and the Crane, in carved relief, a fine example of how the home&rsquo;s design evokes literary<ins cite="mailto:Kesler,%20Alan%20E." datetime="2018-01-27T09:29">,</ins> as well as,&nbsp;historical themes.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Up one&nbsp;flight of the curving staircase is the spacious family room and kitchen. The family room is a large, 20&#39; by 21&#39;&nbsp;space with additional skylights, a grand mantelpiece and graceful Adam-style detailing. The kitchen is accessed through a wonderful original butler&rsquo;s pantry with zinc-lined sink, unique backlit&nbsp;windowed display case&nbsp;and a&nbsp;warm, hearth tile floor that continue<ins cite="mailto:Kesler,%20Alan%20E." datetime="2018-01-27T10:01">s</ins> into the kitchen. The eat-in kitchen features a&nbsp;beamed ceiling, antiqued pickled pine cabinetry, triple windows facing Chestnut Street at treetop level and direct elevator access. On the opposite end of this floor is another suite consisting of a fireplaced bedroom, bay windowed dressing area&nbsp;facing the gardens and a&nbsp;full bath.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><img alt="" src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.usmre.com/6119/blog/photo-2.aspx.jpeg" style="width: 400px; height: 267px; float: left; margin: 5px 10px;">On the fourth floor rests the master bedroom suite, which has a large mirrored bath with oversized Jacuzzi tub set beneath a skylight and exceptional closet storage offered by a large walk-in, additional closets and custom built-ins. The huge master bedroom with beautifully detailed fireplace and Juliet balcony is set below an oversized skylight with electronically controlled shades. Another bedroom suite with full bath&nbsp;on this level is currently used as a sun-filled home gym.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The home&rsquo;s massive, private roof deck with wonderful city views is one level above and is easily accessible via a full, sky-lit staircase. It has been newly renovated by the current owners and is equipped with water, gas and electric.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The duplex suite on the first and garden levels is also enchanting, featuring an octagonal shaped entry foyer leading&nbsp;into a large living room. Currently in use as a&nbsp;formal dining room, it boasts&nbsp;beautiful garden<ins cite="mailto:Kesler,%20Alan%20E." datetime="2018-01-27T09:50">-</ins>facing windows and countless architectural flourishes.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><img alt="" src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.usmre.com/6119/blog/photo-3.aspx.jpeg" style="width: 400px; height: 267px; float: right; margin: 5px 10px;">Adjoining this space is a bedroom suite that Henry Davis sleeper used for his own quarters. Downstairs is a large&nbsp;oval-shaped room detailed in a High Victorian Gothic style, off of which is a comfortable glass-ceilinged conservatory and bedroom with a full bath. The kitchen on this lower level includes a breakfast room set beneath glass block skylights to Chestnut Street that were completely and painstakingly restored&nbsp;to their original design.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">This one-of-a-kind townhouse is complete with a parking space at the Brimmer street Garage.</p> <p><a href="https://www.campionre.com/active-exclusive-listings/" target="_blank">View all Campion and Company Exclusive Listings</a></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><span style="border-top-left-radius: 2px;

The great room takes influence from 17th-century English design and includes a double height beamed ceiling, grand fireplace and large mullioned windows that admit a flood of light. The property is <a href="https://www.campionre.com/listing/72281458/32-lime-boston-ma/" target="_blank">currently offered for sale by Campion and Company</a>.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.usmre.com/6119/blog/2Living3.jpg" style="width: 600px; height: 401px;"></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.usmre.com/6119/blog/2Living4.jpg" style="width: 600px; height: 405px;"></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><i>The Great Room at 32 Lime Street</i></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" class="featured featured featured" src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.usmre.com/6119/blog/2Living.jpg" style="width: 600px; height: 850px;"></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><em>Great Room double height window detail</em></p> <p style="text-align: center;">&nbsp;</p> <h3>More about 32 Lime Street and its architect:&nbsp;</h3> <p>The house was built ca. 1914 by architect Richard Arnold Fisher, an architect responsible for many homes and apartment houses throughout Boston and New England. The house&nbsp;is a wonderful example of a simple re-working of older Adamesque Georgian motifs common to the Hill, as well a celebrated effort to eschew traditional scale. Perhaps inspired by the enthusiasm for the Arts and Crafts movement in Boston and the Bohemian artists&rsquo; colony thriving on the Flat of Beacon Hill, the work of Fisher and his contemporaries sanctioned more freedom in altering older buildings&rsquo; proportions, especially in regards to increasing light to the interior. Among Fisher&rsquo;s best-known works were his residences on Beacon Hill. Primarily constructed during 1902 to 1915, the period in which he practiced alone, these homes included 36, 34, and his own residence, 32 Lime Street. Today the townhouse is owned by&nbsp;just the third owners since it was built.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.usmre.com/6119/blog/Front1.jpg" style="width: 600px; height: 917px;"></p> <p style="text-align: center;">Two full stories of copper- edged windows centrally aligned on the front facade of 32 Lime Street uniquely provide light to the neighboring row house, also designed by Fisher.&nbsp;</p> <p><span style="border-top-left-radius: 2px;
