Designed by architect William Ralph Emerson, this shingle-style mansion sits high on Milton Hill, on an magnificent and sprawling 1.47 acre lot that extends to the Neponset River. This grand, three-level home has seven bedrooms, five bathrooms and six fireplaces, ornate yet intimate living and dining rooms and a library with built-in bookshelves. Built to the highest standards in the 1890s, the gracious and inviting house is ideally located a very short distance from historic Milton Village, and its MBTA Red Line trolley stop and the Neponset River walking and biking trails. The Milton Lower Mills and the Central Avenue restaurants and shops are very close by. For a buyer who is willing to renovate, this remarkable turn-of-the-20th-century home offers quick highway and transit access to downtown Boston, while situated in a village-like setting, on a spectacular and very private, waterfront parcel.
