Cambridge single family home #BostonHomes #CambridgeHomesDesigned by Arthur Little in 1888, The Joseph Thorp House is a highly unconventional, outstanding, and eclectic Colonial Revival masterpiece.With a sympathetic nod to the Queen Anne style, asymmetry abounds, yet all facades are active with Neo-Classical elements, such as columns and pilasters, bays and balconies with delicate balustrades, scrolled corbels, keystone arches. The eclectic interior invokes all classical orders of design including Greco-Roman details and intricately carved teak salon by the American Aesthetic Movement's Lockwood de Forest.In the southeast corner, the home's library incorporates late 19th century Norwegian design with a traditional "peasant" hearth. The truly Classical dining room incorporates a Palladian bay of leaded glass and intimate "Poet's Corner" adorned with and bas-relief on walls, domed ceiling and mantel delights. The French country kitchen houses the original Walker & Pratt cast-iron stove, modern prep island, sub-zero refrigerators and FiveStar range.This home has 10 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms, and 2 half bathrooms.See more photos and details for 168 Brattle Street.Cambridge, while famous as the home of Harvard University and MIT, is far more varied than that.
