Driving Directions

Circa 1776 the Joshua Lewis House sits atop a gently rolling lawn on the Charles River 12 miles outside of Boston, steeped in history and historic lore (see attached). Maintaining all the character and charm of days gone by preserving many original details - wainscoting and moldings, built-in cabinetry, wide plank wood floor 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. New roof in 2016. Flagstone terrace overlooks 1.25 acres of pastoral land. Detached 3 car garage with walk-up loft for storage. Separate air-conditioned studio with kitchen and full bath, completes the picture postcard setting.
