First New Construction in Beacon Hill in 50 Years

The Chestnut Street Townhouse by Hacin + Associates in Boston, Massachusetts will be the first new construction in the Beacon Hill neighborhood in the last 50 years.

The original structure for the Chestnut Street Townhouse was thought to have been a stable before it was rebuilt as a house in the 1920s. Due to wear over the years the home was deemed unsalvageable, and is now being rebuilt for a second time. The designers and architects who worked on the Chestnut Street Townhouse were careful to preserve the historic architectural elements of the area, so as to complement rather than upstage the neighboring buildings. Period-evocative materials, such as brick, copper, wrought iron, and steel, anchor the building in the neighborhood’s historical context.

Skylights and a roof deck were added to brighten up the home. Luxury materials like marble and granite used in the kitchens and fireplaces add a modern touch.
