Property Description for 96 Rockwood Street, Jamaica Plain, MA 02130

Opportunity abounds at one of the last, significant estates in Boston Proper. Located close to Jamaica Pond and Longwood Medical Center, this stone Gothic Victorian was originally built as an impressive country estate on over 12 acres of wooded grounds for Boston merchant Abel Adams. The present day property consists of a 15,000 sf manor house with an in-ground pool and detached 3 car garage on approximately 4.72 acres of land. The impressive approach to the house, and the surrounding land, is surprising for a property located so close to Downtown Boston. The main house has eight bedrooms, four and one half baths, and a separate three bedroom, one bath wing for a housekeeper or an au pair. Sections of the house itself have been tastefully and thoughtfully modernized, and much of the original architectural and decorative details are still intact. This home also borders Brookline and is conveniently located near Larz Andersen Park, The Park School, and the Dexter and Southfield Schools.
