Photos show the house located at 127 Chestnut Street on the southeast corner of the intersection with Prospect Street. Built around 1911, the English cottage style house has a stucco exterior and terra cotta tile roof. A three-car garage was recently added at the rear. The large, three-winged home was designed by Wakefield architect Harland O. Perkins, who lived at 8 Park Street. The home was built for Elizabeth Boit, one of the founders of the Harvard Knitting Mills, and was part of a compound of similarly styled buildings that included 90 Prospect Street, and a smaller carriage house at 88 Prospect Street.
