A Sumner Hill mansion — which the owners knitted back into a single-family house after it had been split into three units — is on the market.
The 14-room house at 40 Greenough Ave. was restored by owners Diane Pienta and Dave O'Donohoe, as they explain in a video about the house.[selfie]
"Even though it's sad for us," Pienta says in the video, "it's time for it to be filled with new life. It's a happy home."
The property's history goes back to about 1885, according to the Massachusetts Cultural Resources Information System. Back in 1874 the lot was owned by George E. Woodman, according to a map furnished by Gretchen Grozier of the Jamaica Plain Historical Society.
By 1884, the present house at 40 Greenough Ave. had been built and was owned by C.B. Cumings, as you can see in this map, also courtesy of the Historical Society.
The 5,545 square foot home has five bedrooms, five full bathrooms and five fireplaces.
The owners appear in this sale video prepared by the Realtors.
Here's the property listing from Ellen and Janis Real Estate. There's an open house on Sunday from noon to 2 p.m.
[Editor's note: The original post incorrectly said the building was condos before the renovations.]
