A 19th-century home with bold, modern updates is listed in Chestnut Hill.
11 Chestnut Place, Brookline Price: $4,950,000 Size: 7,980 square feet Bedrooms: 5 Baths: 6
Built in 1845 and set on just under one acre of land, this Victorian home is located in Brookline's Sargent Estate Area. The property, listed for just under $5 million, includes the five-bedroom main residence, a pool house with a 54-foot pool and spa, and a one-bedroom apartment above a carriage house.
With renovations recently completed in 2013, the home's 19th-century facade was restored, and the interiors were reinvented to include modern, contemporary design details.
Outside, traditional blue siding and a contrasting vivid door set the tone. The living room features period details and a walk out terrace overlooking the back yard. The kitchen includes contemporary cabinetry, polished concrete counters, a free standing range, and a breakfast nook. Hardwood flooring, built-in shelving, and clean-lined windows and doorways are found throughout the home.
The pool house has floor-to-ceiling windows and opens to a large green space.
