Successive owners have transformed this Queen Anne Victorian into a grand dame of its corner of Ashmont Hill. Painted salmon and sea-foam green, the fully renovated Painted Lady has a unique third-floor master suite: a Japanese-themed environment with a soaking tub, separate shower, bamboo floors, cabinets and doors and rounded, coffered ceilings. There are numerous built-in closets and a desk area. The first floor has the classic Victorian touches of high ceilings, oak floors, and large windows in the fireplaced living room and dining room. The original embossed tin ceilings are intact in both of those rooms. The updated kitchen has dark granite counters, a breakfast island, and a pantry. There is a half-bath with Nantucket wainscoting and a laundry closet.

The stairway has a stained-glass window and original carved railings, and the second floor has parquet oak floors throughout. In the front bedroom, an interior wall was knocked down to expand it and a built-in cabinet has been installed. The two other bedrooms have good-sized closets. The family bath has a whirlpool tub and separate glass-walled shower. There is a two-car garage. The basement is unfinished.
