A 14,000-square-foot estate, originally built in 1904 as a summer home for the Houghton family, is listed for sale for $10.95 million.

The Mediterranean colonial-style home sits on 1.6 acres at 152 Suffolk Road in Chestnut Hill and features seven bedrooms, 12 bathrooms and an elevator.

“The grand estate was originally built by Chapman & Frazer Architects in 1904, and redesigned today paying homage to its origins while graciously reimagined and rebuilt with a tastefully elegant (palate),” the listing states. “This vast 3 year undertaking yielded an architectural masterpiece with an exhaustive focus on preservation while completing a sophisticated ensemble of innovation and design.”

Interior features include custom decorative floor-to-ceiling wood paneling in the grand foyer, a newly created sun room, elaborate molding and a private parapet overlooking a courtyard.

Manuel Davis and Kristy Ganong of BRA Residential are the estate’s listing agents.
