House Lust: A Gorgeous Historic House with a Veranda is Back on the Market

After three decades of vacancy, the Lewis Tower House in Cumberland is good as new — better, even. Take a look inside.

For years and years, Cumberland residents and curious passersby wondered what was hiding behind the brush at 2211 Mendon Road. Now, after three decades of vacancy, the Lewis Tower House is good as new — better, even, thanks to one couple’s careful and complete restoration.

“They did an absolutely fantastic job,” says Brendan Duckworth, who grew up in town and listed the property back in March. “It’s very well done, from a design standpoint.”

Last month, the house garnered seven offers and went under contract fast. But the sale fell through due to a complication with the buyer, who wanted to install a commercial sign out front in an area that’s zoned residential, Duckworth says.

Now, it’s back on the market for someone else to claim as their own — albeit quickly; the open house is this Sunday. With that in mind, here’s your House Lust (and may the real estate gods be on your side):
