CHESTNUT HILL, MA - Hammond Residential Real Estate agent Shal Shahani represented the buyer client in connection with the $3,100,000 sale of 19 Colchester Street in Brookline, an historic French Second Empire-style residence, circa 1865, that served as the former home of notable businessman and author Robert Apthorp Boit. Robert was a brother of painter Edward Darley Boit, whose daughters are depicted in John Singer Sargent’s 1882 painting The Daughters of Edward Darley Boit, one of the most popular paintings hanging in the Museum of Fine Arts
Located near Brookline’s desirable Longwood area, 19 Colchester Street features 8,124 square feet of living space and is comprised of seventeen total rooms, which include eight bedrooms, seven full bathrooms, and one half-bathroom.
Blending the best of modern convenience with period detail, spectacular interior amenities at the residence include seven fireplaces, a spa room, an elevator, and a modern kitchen. Additionally, the residence offers grand scale entertaining rooms, a library, and an independent guest suite.
Exterior property amenities include a detached barn which provides parking for one automobile, in addition to space for a workshop, studio, fitness center, and home office. Eight off-street parking spaces round off the property, which is in proximity to a host of restaurant, retail, and transportation amenities, as well as one of the city’s largest healthcare portals.
After working for over twelve years in Corporate America, Shal Shahani decided to bring her business acumen to the real estate industry.
