Wanna Buy It Wednesday: 66 Mount Vernon Street, Boston, MA

Today's dream home is located in the Beacon Hill neighborhood of Boston, MA. 66 Mount Vernon Street is a 4 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom condo offering 2887 square feet of living space. It's 3.8 million dollar price tag is certainly high, however this home offers beautiful details original to when it was built in 1809. Check out some of this home's unique qualities below.

Wine cellar and extra storage off the kitchen.

The wood work in this space is quite striking. Notice the arched doorway and dental moldings.

The curved wall of windows is a great feature. I would remove the bars if possible. They make the home look like it's in a rough neighborhood even though it's not. I do like the paint color choice. Since there is plenty of light in the room they can get away with the dark color.

The website only shows a painted picture of the home suggesting that the exterior is possibly being updated. From the looks of it, the home is at least four stories.

The kitchen is by far my favorite room in this house-farmhouse sink, six-burner gas Viking stove, custom cabinets, and plenty of storage. Do you notice the tin tile roof and the recessed lighting? Details like this add an antique quality to the new kitchen keeping with the style of the rest of the home.

These details look original.
