A 1920’s estate in Milton, MA

New England Cable News (NECN) Dream House just aired a two part segment on the fabulous DeShazo 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.

Edited to add:

My friend, the fabulous photographer Jean Donohue sent along some interiors photos she’d shot of the house. I’ve tried to take inside pics, but failed miserably. Yep, once again, the professional is really the way to go!

  1. Linda,
    This house is just wonderful!
    You are so lucky to have visisted it! I so love old houses, they are so charming!
    The ceilings and fireplaces,….
    Thank you so much for sharing!
    If you have another occasion to visit a house like that, don't forget to share it with us!

    Thank you Linda! have a nice weekend!

  2. I grew up in this house, and am pretty disappointed to seen some of the tacky interior design implemented by the current owners. The pool installed on the stone patio, yikes!

  3. Hi Anon – well, as they say, you can never go home again. I have to say that I think they integrated the pool very nicely into the patio, but can imagine it's hard to see changes made. If you had any photos of when you lived there, I'd love to see them.
