Victorian Splendor

Originally designed by J. Merrill Brown in 1887, this Queen Anne style home sits proudly in Cambridge's Avon Hill Historic District. Past was blended with present in the restoration of this property to its original 19th century elegance. The design satisfied historical requirements with its attention to authentic detailsand materials; it also satisfied the wishes of the family who has been connected to the house through several generations.

Thanks for your question! The cabinet color is by Benjamin Moore, Adams Gold HC-18. As a reminder true colors vary in digital media. Please test the color before purchasing or using.

Thanks! We work with Dan Maher on a lot of our stained glass projects. The piece above the door was custom made by him. He is located in Somerville, MA.
