Own a piece of American history! This Georgian Colonial was built in the mid-18th century by a member of the Hammond family and was later owned by John Lowell, a Judge in the U.S. District Court. The house has undergone a number of alterations over the years and for the past 40-plus years has been the beloved home of just one family. The setting is bucolic with an oversized parcel of 1.36 acres of beautiful flat lawns, mature specimen trees and flowering gardens. This property offers the serenity of country living while public transportation, the shops and restaurants at 8220;The Street 8221; and 8220;Chestnut Hill Square 8221; are all within walking distance.
