This 1790-hipped roof home has a balanced, symmetrical facade in keeping with the late Georgian style. Differentiating from your typical colonial are the notable decorative details such as the gable, which crowns the shallow central projection, and the wooden quoins, which give texture to the outer edges. Centrally located on the historic green of Roxbury, this home is among those that the merchant elite of the Post Revolutionary period commissioned. Equally historical are the trees on the property, some dating further back than the construction itself. Large maples, sycamores, and willows lovingly accentuate the beauty of this treasured part of town. The home’s front entrance is flanked by a formal living room on the left and a large dining room on the right, both with fireplaces and original carpentry details. The rear of the home comprises three sections; a short back hall to the left, which leads to a first-floor bedroom, en suite, and kitchenette; a central eat-in kitchen overlooking the backyard, and the original undated portion to the right offering a den and mudroom space. The home’s historical character is revealed in details such as the horsehair plaster, a material that expands and contracts with the seasons, giving the house a life-like quality. Typical of the more intimate spaces of bygone eras are the lovely seating nooks like the one that sits atop the central staircase.
