New England Cable News (NECN) Dream House just aired a two part segment on this fabulous 1920’s estate in Milton, MA. I’ve been lucky to have attended a few industry events at this spectacular 1920’s brick mansion and thought I’d share the video and some still photos of the property. It truly is like stepping back to another time. The house is 11,000 square feet and has thirteen working fireplaces, original wrought iron work, a circular stair, carved wood ceiling and original butler’s pantry.

My friend, the fabulous photographer Jean Donohue sent along some interiors photos she’d shot of this gorgeous estate. I’ve tried to take inside pics, but failed miserably. Yep, once again, the professional is really the way to go!
This house was on the market in 2019. From the listing: Designed by famous architects, Henry Forbes Bigelow and Philip Wadsworth, The McGinley Mansion is a sophisticated escape that reflects the merging of traditional Georgian design with modern luxury. The striking features throughout the home include a winding quarter sawn oak staircase that appears to turn directly into the elaborate cupola above, an expansive dining room with a Moroccan inspired ceiling which opens up to the famous Lord and Burnham designed greenhouse, as well as the historic gardens created by the famous Ellen Biddle Shipman are just a few of the many awe inspiring aspects of this magnificent home. The gardens are adjacent to the patio which features a heated in-ground pool and Jacuzzi which openly invites friends and family for hours of entertainment. A 5 bay garage with a 2 bedroom 2 Bath aupair suite create a multi-dimensional living environment.The McGinley Mansion invites you to enjoy a cultivated lifestyle close to downtown Boston.
