    There are a lot of areas considered “Boston.” This home is in Hyde Park.

    This house was built before 1872 for Gordon H. Nott, an MIT graduate and civil engineer, who was involved in the development of Hyde Park from the 1850’s – the street is named for him.

    I’m sure the neighborhood has its issues but this great old home in excellent condition on 2+ acres within the Boston city limits seems unbelievable at this price.

    Great kitchen space! Very little to undo to have something really special. No need to clog up that sunny, wide open space with a bunch of hoo hah. Think 30’s / 40’s. Think minimal. Looks like there is plenty space available to add another pantry if you need it.

    Anyone notice that it is advertised as having “5 bedrooms and 1.5 bathrooms” yet the floor plans clearly show 7 bedrooms? The one in the attic was probably a “servants” room. There are 5 bedrooms on the second floor and 1 bedroom on the first floor. Of course, the one on the first floor was more than likely the dining room and I’m sure there was a butler’s pantry between the kitchen and dining room. The refrigerator has been “built-in” to an old doorway. I feel the original layout of the first floor had two front parlors, a dining room, a library/music room, and the kitchen with butler’s pantry. The wall between the “living room” and the library/music room was moved at some point to enlarge the front parlor and create the 15′ by 4′ storage room. It would be fun to see the original floor plans and return this home to the configuration it once had.

      The 5 bedrooms are what’s on the tax records, it’s where I got the information from the listing details.

      it is a long walk from the kitchen to the dining room via the central hallway. only one bathroom for 5/7 bedrooms is strange.

        That doesn’t work for me either. Someone made the dining room a bedroom at some point is my guess and closed up the door into the dining room. Almost ALWAYS in floor plans of this period you see the dining room right next to the kitchen. I have never seen a dining room that far from the kitchen in the old floor plans for this period.

    That front door doesn’t look right. Neither do the sidelights.

    I would turn the attic into a master bedroom, Love the space. Wonder if it would hurt to add a bathroom up there, I think your right about the first floor bedroom, I don’t think it fits on the main floor at all, Let’s change it back to the original..
