Location: Winchester, Mass.
The Skinny: Located on Upper Mystic Lake in the Boston suburbs, this three-story brick house with a gabled roof was designed and built by New England architect F. Patterson Smith as his own personal residence in 1898. Updates and renovations—most recently on the kitchen, but it appears the whole house has been redone in some way—have removed some of the the original character, but traces—beamed ceilings, wainscoting, and fireplaces—still remain. As do the formal gardens, pergola, boat house, and dock. The sunroom jutting off the side is also an attractive feature. The house, located in the Everett Avenue-Sheffield Road Historic District (a neighborhood packed with bungalows, Colonial Revivals, and Craftsman houses that's been on the National Register of Historic Places since 1989), is asking $3.5M.
