37 Lancaster, Estate of the Day
Today's home in Cambridge, Massachusetts was built in 1888 and had been occupied and owned by the same family since 1919. It has been mostly unmessed with, making it as the listing says, one of the most lovely and best-preserved residences in the Boston area. The home was created by the architectural firm of Hartwell-Richardson and epitomizes the Shingle style. The woodwork in this home is simply incredible, beautifully carved and lovingly well-preserved. The home has a Southern exposure across the entire front facade and light streams in from large windows. The home features many intact custom stained-glass windows. There are many fireplaces, two living rooms and nine bedrooms. The third floor includes a billiards room and a cedar-lined storage room. The property also has a two-story carriage house. This home is listed at $4.495 million.
