Being one of the oldest cities in the country, Boston is rich with a unique historical past. We’re home to the nation’s first public school, well known Boston Latin, and the nation’s first subway system. When it comes to famous historical figures, we can claim hundreds. The Appleton-Parker House in Beacon Hill has an impressive history of its own. This spot was once home to painter John Singleton Copley (think “Paul Revere” in the Art of America’s wing at the MFA). Later the property was bought by Nathan Appleton and Daniel Parker. They tore the home down and built the homes that now stand at 38-40 Beacon St. Later Appleton’s daughter married poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow in the home. How’s that for a claim to fame?
For the past twenty plus years, the Appleton-Parker house has served as a private residence. Currently on the market for $7,990,000, this home provides 5000 square feet of living space over two floors complete with a private elevator. Each room is more impressive than the last with oversized windows overlooking Boston Common, soaring ceilings with amazing detail work accented by dramatic chandeliers, and the most gorgeous staircase in the city. The home includes four bedrooms, four bathrooms, and six fireplaces. There’s a large, landscaped deck off of the gourmet kitchen adding to this home’s great entertaining space.
