The historic Dexter-Hall House, sited on nearly an acre abutting conservation land, has the feel of a grand country manor – but is less than a mile from Fenway Park and Cambridge. Minna Hall, co-founder of Mass. Audubon, grew up in the house and developed her love of nature there. Built in 1851 of Roxbury puddingstone and brick, with slate roof and granite block foundation, it is replete with beautiful architectural detail, including sculpted marble mantels, carved plaster moldings, exposed stone walls, and coffered ceilings. A lovely blend of original detail and thoughtful renovation, the home offers a living room, formal dining room, kitchen with vaulted ceiling and breakfast nook, library with custom built-ins, spacious master suite, 4 bedrooms, 4 1/2 baths, 2 studies, 5 fireplaces, and finished basement media room. Central air, multi-zone hi-eff heat, and 3-car garage with electric car outlet. Walk to Green Line B, C, and D trains, Coolidge Corner, major hospitals, and BU campus.
