Built in 1888, this pretty little lady in Reading, Mass., took us on a slight detour off our planned route. My mom loves an old house with a corner tower as much as I love rotisserie chicken that “accidentally” gets dropped near me in the kitchen. So our extra steps to the Ada E. Lewis House came as no surprise.
Boston banker Frank Lewis lived here in 1894, and like many of his neighbors, commuted into the city via the Boston & Maine Railroad. The house is named for his wife, Ada E. Lewis.
Located in the historic Summer Avenue historic district, it has 3,465 square feet, six bedrooms and four bathrooms, and last sold in 2008 for $787,350. It currently assessed at $1.047 million.
