Owner info

Year Purchased: 1936

About the owner: This has been our summer house since I was born, when living in New York and Cambridge, MA. This house has been the hub of our existence — a magical place with a deep 'sense of place' — whether we've been living in New York City or Boston or Santa Monica, California. We always come back here two or three times a year, especially around Christmas and in Spring.
