Back Bay Majestic

This grand 7,500 square-foot Romanesque home was originally built in 1881. More than a century later, the place still dazzles. Today, it boasts a wood-paneled library, an elevator, stained glass windows, an elegant dining room, a two-car garage, and a total of seven fireplaces. The stunning interior centers around a soaring five floor elliptical grand stair. What really sets it apart, though, is the abundance of outdoor gathering spots. There are two decks that can be accessed from the sky-lighted rooftop bar, not to mention a picturesque private garden off of the kitchen, complete with a fountain.
