49 Hawthorn Street seamlessly combines home, life and style classically and elegantly on its southeast facing corner location across from Riverbend Park and the Charles River, and just minutes from Harvard Square, Harvard University, Lesley College, the Cambridge Tennis Club and Mt. Auburn Hospital. Built in 1900 this 5,432 SqFt home presents three levels of living space, five fireplaces, a circular first-floor layout, lavish architectural detail, a brick-paved garden oasis, 2 parking spaces and a corner exposure alongside an abundance of mature trees for privacy. Designed in high Federal Revival style by Lois Lilley Howe, Architect, this home features many salvaged Federal architectural details, including wall panels, ornate crown moldings with modillions, dentil patterns and picture-hanging grooves from an early 1800s home undergoing demolition, and integrated into much of the common space for a rich experience of history in this once-in-a-generation residence.
