Built in 1818, this brick patio home in Boston’s iconic Beacon Hill neighborhood is historic and humongous. The 26-room home has 21,000 square feet sprawling throughout 11 bathrooms and 12 bathrooms. Hardwood, tile and carpeting are mixed with rich, lavish furnishings and finely tooled and milled trim and ornate molding. In New England tradition, the home has a basement and several fireplaces and corrals a covetable six-car private parking lot. Most notably, the $23.5 million home has a sweeping, open terrace and patio large enough for entertaining guests, but with plenty of intimacy for meals with the family. [via realtor]
