Architecture buffs will appreciate this walking tour featuring a remarkable collection of romantic English country-style cottages and picturesque churches built in a variety of classical styles. Founded by two families, the Sears and Lawrence families, as places where they and their friends could live, these two historic districts boast beautiful homes, several 19th century churches, and a surprise or two, such as one of the first International Style homes built in the Boston area, and the home of the subjects of one of the most well-loved paintings at the Museum of Fine Arts.
The Longwood and Cottage Farm historic districts span some 119 acres and are comprised of sophisticated suburban homes and cottages designed in the Gothic Revival, Mansard, Queen Anne, and Georgian Revival architectural styles. Did we also mention this is where Tom Brady lives? Tickets are just $15 and can be purchased online!
