Bennett House // 1913

Seemingly constructed in the early 19th century as a Federal style home, this house in Brookline was actually constructed 100 years later in 1913 as a Federal Revival mansion for real estate developer and mortgage broker Henry Bennett. The home was originally located on Walnut Street, opposite the First Parish Church (featured in the last post), but was moved away from the street in 1935, to front a smaller street, Hedge Street, developed by Martin P. Kennard. The stunning home was designed by the architectural firm of Kilham and Hopkins, both of whom attended MIT and designed many stunning properties all around the region in the early 20th century, many in Revival styles.
