Charles Bradshaw House // 1899

This house was built for Charles Bradshaw, who moved into a new home in his newly laid-out Westwood Road subdivision just a block from his former home, which was located at 175 Summer Street. When built, the home was considered one of the nicest in the neighborhood and is the purest form of Colonial Revival architecture on the short street. The home features a fan transom with sidelights at the front door, Corinthian columns and pilasters, and a large broken scrolled pediment. Sadly, it has been “vinyled” like many homes in Somerville, but despite this, it retains much of the original detailing and is well-maintained!
