The Historic Boylston-Hyslop-Lee house, across from the Brookline Reservoir is a story of preservation and stewardship at its finest. One of Brookline's oldest homes, the current rear ell was built circa 1680 by the Boylston family. In 1738 Dr. Zabdiel Boylston added the south facing Colonial front of the house. In 1850 the house was renovated and enlarged by the noted architect John Hubbard Sturgis. Still owned and cared for by descendants of the Lee family, the house contains many original architectural details from each period. The expansive grounds offer a beautifully landscaped mix of lawns, perennial gardens, and mature plantings, as well as woodlands and fields along Boylston St., which are protected by a Conservation Restriction, giving the house a setting that has remained relatively unchanged for two hundred years.
