Set atop a gently rolling lawn along the Charles River just outside of Boston sits the Joshua Lewis House circa 1776. This property is steeped in history and historic lore (see attached). Remodeled with exacting attention to every detail and flawlessly executed to maintain all the character and charm days gone by all while respecting the antique home by preserving many original details - wainscoting and moldings, built-in cabinetry, wide plank square pegged wood and painted floors and 6 wood burning hearths - combined with amenities desired for today's lifestyle including walk-in fridge, Viking and Fisher & Paykel appliances. Two staircases lead to the 2nd level encompassing 4 bedrooms and convenient 2nd floor laundry. Flagstone terrace overlooks 1.25 acres of pastoral land.
