A top to bottom renovation revitalized this historic Back Bay townhouse. The design embraces the 16-foot wide floor plates and inherited bearing walls to create a series of living areas showcasing a series of carefully restored and replicated historical details. A trip up the central staircase winds from formal to informal entertaining spaces, eventually leading to private living quarters on the upper floors. The home’s eight fireplaces are adorned with restored or historically inspired mantels. Elegantly detailed custom millwork improves efficiency and livability. But the real treat is the basement game room, featuring hand finished wood and inspired by ship interiors.
