                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 1993

                              About the owner: Friendly art historian and designer. Born and raised in Asia and the US, I love international design and traditional folk arts, which is why my spaces are eclectic, decorated in European, Pan-Asian, and Moroccan styles. One of the main reasons I like sharing my spaces is because, in this way, I am also sharing experiences and beauty I have encountered while traveling.

                              Why the Owner Chose Boston:
                              It is a gracious and historically important early American townhouse, with lovely authentic architectural details. The interior spaces have the calm of the Neo-Classical and the intimacy of the Federal style. Boston is a great city for the arts and history, and a pleasure to experience because of its human scale.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                              The fireplaces, courtyard garden with fountain, skylights, and hand-hewn beams are rare. Located in Boston's oldest neighborhood. And the art!
