VICTORIAN 10 ft plus ceilings, 18-inch baseboards, a leaded glass foyer and ornate crown molding, 87 Gloucester is a rare gem. With 2618 square feet the three-story house is spacious and inviting. There are three bedrooms and 4 baths. The living room and dining room have working wood fireplaces. These rooms flow into each other and also open to the solarium.

DESIGNED for entertaining in winter and summer the house flows beautifully from street to garden. Walking through the leaded glass foyer, the long view past the embellished stairway and the crown molding, guides the eye to the modern kitchen and family room, on to the large glass doors to the garden. The family room opens wide with walk-out to deck. From the kitchen the yard access is through the solarium, a bright shoulder-season room perfect for sprouting seeds and enjoying outside light on a rainy day.
PRIVATE GARDEN Along the back wall of the private garden is a covered pavilion in the Japanese style. It will seat a crowd or a few in any weather. Planter boxes surround the garden, and the expansive deck.
