Formerly grand homes in Boston’s South End were routinely robbed of carved fireplace mantels and other architectural embellishments when converted into apartments some 30 years ago. Happily for interior designer Gerald Pomeroy, one Victorian brownstone was overlooked—neglect was its best friend.
The brownstone’s mahogany front doors with privacy glass are original, just one of numerous elements in the residence that date to the 19th century.
