Exquisite architecture, aged and modernized to perfection.
125 Mt Vernon Street
This fantastic one-of-a-kind 4-story townhouse is part of the historic Charles Street Meeting House designed by Asher Benjamin and completed in 1807. In the 1920s when Charles Street was widened, the building was moved in its entirety back ten feet and set on a concrete foundation. Eventually, this Federal-style church came into disrepair. Fortunately for the City of Boston, the building was purchased in the 1980s by architect John Sharratt who restored and preserved the exterior for generations.
The excellent quality of restoration was honored by both the National Trust for Historic Preservation and the American Institute of Architects. The church was converted into a residence, offices, and street retail. Recent updates to the building include a new rubber roof, video intercom, and fresh paint. The house has an elevator to the fourth floor, central a/c, patio and a roof deck.
