Pelham Hall — just outside Boston proper — is a regal example of 1920’s grandeur. Soon, it will boast the latest in high-end modern conveniences as well.
When Fairstead acquired this market rate property in the heart of Brookline’s Coolidge Corner, the company started a renovation that would maintain all the art-deco details — decorative moldings, crystal doorknobs, brass fixtures, hardwood floors — while refreshing the floor plans and common areas. The work called for breaking down walls to reconfigure the living spaces that would better accommodate today’s families. The ambitious program introduced open-concept kitchens, with quartz countertops, Shaker-style cabinets, champagne bronze finishes, modern matte-black hardware, transitional lighting, and top-of-the-line, energy efficient appliances. Both the kitchen and the bathrooms were fitted with low-flow fixtures, reflecting the brand standards of Fairstead’s Design & Construction team.
At ground level, the retail spaces are also in the process of being reimagined, the better to house boutiques and shops that will in turn elevate the vibrancy of the neighborhood.
