Track my home. A piece of Bostonian history is up for sale in the Burrage House, a year-old castle-like house in Boston 's storied Back Bay neighborhood. The magnificent 4, square foot residence is one of four units in the glamorous house, and offers the opportunity to live in one of Boston's iconic turn-of-the-century homes. The Burrage House was built in for Alfred Burrage , a businessman, lawyer, and philanthropist. Burrage reportedly modeled the home's architecture on that of Chenonceau , a medieval chateau in the Loire Valley of France. The detailing of the Burrage House, however, is a blend of many heritages that perfectly epitomizes Gilded Age architecture. Extraordinary moldings, glimmering chandeliers, and carved mahogany paneling are only the beginnings of the beauty in the august residence. The house has undergone several metamorphoses over the years, including stints as doctors' offices, an elderly care facility, and the headquarters of the Boston Evening Club.
