The magnificent 1885 Quincy-Wardner House was designed by Allen & Kenway (architects of several Beacon St/Boston stone townhouses), and is located in Dorchester's bucolic Carruth neighborhood, 3 blocks from the Ashmont Red Line T. This Queen Anne Victorian was built in the Romanesque style of massive rusticated stone, brick and wood shingle and has been faithfully and impeccably restored. A grand living hall features extensive quarter-sawn oak architectural detail, stained glass and monumental fireplace, but this is just the beginning the adventure of exploring this lovely house. Light streams through numerous oversize and stained glass windows into formal living, dining, music, and billiards rooms, a large master with it's own tree-top porch, a commodious marble bath, plus an expansive open floor plan kitchen/family room. There are five fireplaces each with a distinctive mantel; an octagonal porch for afternoon tea. A large fenced yard is a bonus.
