Property Description

Rare Offering! Stately Back Bay Brick 2-family with Parking! This wonderful residence with an ideal corner location in the Back Bay enjoys superb exterior and interior architectural detail and sunny, light-filled views of Fairfield and Marlborough Street. Conceived by the firm of Cabot and Chandler in 1879 for Ms. Georgiana Lowell, the property remained in the Lowell family until after 1922. In 1995 when the current owners acquired the home, it had been divided into several apartments; subsequently, 12 Fairfield underwent extensive renovation and restoration with careful attention to combine its beautiful original detail with state-of-the-art amenities. Come see for yourself!
