Boston is a city full of amazing architecture and gorgeous homes. In fact it's sometimes difficult to be in awe of a home in Boston, simply because there are so many wonderful places. However one home that has managed to stand out for over 100 years now is the Burrage Mansion.
We thought it would be fun to highlight this jaw dropping home today.
The Burrage Mansion sits at 314 Commonwealth Avenue, right here in Boston and is certainly not your typical modest home. With almost 50 gargoyles, dragons, and cherubs carved into the exterior of the building, this mansion now is home to six condominium units.
The mansion built in 1899, was definitely a statement from its owner Albert C. Burrage, a successful lawyer and business man. Burrage traveled a considerable amount but always considered Boston his home, and wanted to display his success in the form of a building.
Modeled after the Vanderbilt home in New York and designed by renowned architect Charles Bringham, the mansion dominated the street, and still does today. A sunroom that wraps around the mansion with gorgeous victorian glass ceilings is just one more signature element of the building. Mahogany's, stained glass, and marble ensure that anyone walking by the mansion or through the mansion knows this isn't your typical home.
