Tucked away on a side street in Arlington, Mass., the William D. Cousens House is a Queen Anne beauty with Georgian Revival elements.
While we live greenery and trees, we were a wee bit sad its full facade was obstructed. I mean, didn’t they know we’d want a full view of it for this post?
Anyhoo, this house’s lot was part of the Dr. Richard Hodgdon estate. Built in 1895, its first occupant was William D. Cousens of the Sonoma Wire Company in New York. By the 1920s, James A. Bailey, a Boston lawyer, occupied the residence.
