Spotlight Listing: Chestnut Hill
One of the benefits of living in Chestnut Hill is the abundance of architecturally unique, historical homes. Among the gems is Cheston House, an 1890 residence named to honor one of Chestnut Hill Hosptital’s doctors. The owners preserved many of the home’s distinctive features—leaded windows, gabled dormers, arched opened—which give the home a sense of character. The house has also been updated with modern amenities, including a state-of-the-art kitchen, and boasts lovely gardens that were part of the 2006 Historical Society tour. This historical treasure in Chestnut Hill combines the best of both worlds.
