Welcome to the Jechonias Thayer House, a historical Braintree landmark. Originally built in 1805, this 13 room Greek Revival mansion rests on a spacious 1.1 acre landscaped corner lot. It was extensively renovated from 2011 to 2013 to recapture its early 18th century grandeur. The exterior includes a large circular driveway, new patio, in-ground pool, cobblestone walkways, and professional landscaping. The formal living room, dining room and library feature original walnut pegged oak floors, floor length windows and tall ceilings. The 12x16 kitchen has been completely renovated and includes an additional 11x12 dining area and two pantries. The master suite features a dressing room, built-ins, walk-in closet, fireplace and adjoining bath. The heating, electrical and plumbing systems have all been extensively upgraded. You must see this historic jewel from the inside to appreciate the depth of this renovation, its upgrades and its features. Visit for photos and more
