The Maison Brand

Article by By Todd Larson/Correspondent

The very name of this seven-unit rehabilitation of 41 Mt. Vernon St. bespeaks the European craft traditions and internationally sourced materials that went into its details and finishes, including the French oak floors, Italian wrought-iron grates and hand-carved marble mantels, and hand-cast plaster corner cartouches and crown moldings.

Eager to build as much as possible with as little as possible, many home renovators have jettisoned the meticulous hand-wrought craftsmanship of historical eras for the expedient economy of modern prefab materials from plasterboard to plastics – except at Maison Vernon on Beacon Hill.

The very name of this seven-unit rehabilitation of 41 Mt. Vernon St. bespeaks the European craft traditions and internationally-sourced materials that went into its details and finishes, including the French oak floors, Italian wrought-iron grates and hand-carved marble mantels, and hand-cast plaster corner cartouches and crown moldings.
