Built in 1888, this beauty in Lexington, Mass., was built for Lucy Kendall Damon (1817-1900), the widow of Isaac Newton Damon, who was prominent in town affairs.
It was originally facing Forest Street, but by 1898, had been moved back and turned to face Muzzey Street, as it does today.
Mrs. Florence Hamblen, a deed recorder in the East Cambridge courthouse was its owner by 1904, and lived there with her sister. By 1907, was sold to Mr. John Hubbell, who lived there until his death in 1919. His family remained until the 1930s, and it was sold in 1942 to Thomas Lynah.
With five bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms and more than 4,300 square feet, the house last sold in 2014 for $1.659 million.
This house is beautiful from the side as well, and my mom is kicking herself for not taking a photo of it one day when the gates around were open.
