Property Description:

The Edward T. Hornblower House, circa 1875, is one of the treasures of Historic Arlington Center. Situated at the head of Pelham Terrace, this striking Stick Style Victorian is set on a 3/4 acre of beautifully landscaped grounds. Access to the property is off of Academy Road via a winding cobblestone drive. Inside there are six fireplaces with lovely marble mantels, an ornate central stairwell, French doors and high ceilings, yet despite its grandeur the feel is particularly welcoming. The light-filled living room overlooks the garden and an enchanting bronze fountain. A spectacular gourmet kitchen and breakfast room has space galore. The main bedroom has walk-in closets and an elegant en-suite bath. Meticulously restored and updated; there are custom touches throughout, adding ease and extra storage for today’s lifestyle. The two-car garage includes a bonus room overhead. Located in the heart of Arlington, convenient to shops and restaurants, and less than 5 miles to Harvard Square.
