      Brookline MA Colonial Homes

      The Colonial home is one of the most popular styles of home in the United States. The Colonial style evolved from European influences, which started in the 1600s. Many colonists emigrated from Europe and brought those influences with them. Over time the Colonial style became distinct, recognizable for its use of geometry, and different regions of the United States added their own tweaks to provide relief from the climate.

      Regardless of the size of the home, Colonial-style homes share several characteristics.

      • A symmetrical, square shape
      • A central door
      • Paired chimneys
      • Medium pitched roof
      • Straight lines of windows on the first and second floor
      • Often a decorative crown above the door and flattened columns to either side of it
      • The door leads to an entryway with stairway and hall aligned along the center of the house and all rooms branch off of these

      Born from the desire for ultimate privacy with city accessibility, 14± acres of untamed scrub and ledge were assembled into a single property, entirely reclaimed from the wild and transformed into a breathtaking tapestry of rolling lawns, ponds, sculpted rock outcrops and a horticultural encyclopedia of specimen plantings. Five miles from central Boston, this emerald island rises between the surrounding Brookline Country Club and Putterham Meadows Golf Course. Turf walkways and pathways meander through this extraordinary landscape and the winding driveway provides a multi-step reveal of this unique estate and its residence. The curving faade of Indiana limestone creates a home of singular distinction with 26,000sf of luxurious living space. Every exterior and interior stone was individually hand drawn ensuring a flawless finish. The appearance of simplicity is the ultimate challenge, achieved by creative architecture, sophisticated engineering and generations of the finest craftsmen.
