Located one block from historic Symphony Hall, 8 Symphony Road is a spectacular single family brownstone residence, circa 1883, that features 3,060 square feet of living space. Comprised of ten total rooms, the property includes four bedrooms, three full bathrooms, and one half-bathroom. Recent renovations to the residence blend the best of period detail with modern convenience, and amenities such as central air conditioning, hardwood flooring, and three fireplaces can be found throughout the property, which also features a dramatic loft-like two level great room and an eat-in kitchen.


Exterior amenities at 8 Symphony Road include a generously-sized deck and one off-street parking space. The residence is in proximity to numerous restaurant, retail, and transportation options, in addition to all that Boston’s Fenway, Back Bay, and South End neighborhoods have to offer.

Saul Cohen said, “Chris and Peter’s involvement in this significant transaction is a testament to their professionalism and ability to negotiate on behalf of their clients. The recent burst of residential and retail development in the Fenway neighborhood makes it a sought-after destination for many individuals who are looking to purchase or sell property, thus creating a highly-competitive market in that area. Chris and Peter’s marketing prowess and use of Hammond’s unique marketing platform attracted an international buyer for this property, and we are pleased that they were able to successfully help their clients achieve their goals.”
