Renwick House

-A A +A
1877; John C. Cochrane; H. G. Bramlick, landscape architect. 901 Tremont St.

The tower of the Italianate Villa-style Renwick house is even more elaborate in its detailing than that of the nearby Davies house. A Colonial Revival porch (c. 1900) has replaced the earlier system of porches that encompassed much of the ground floor of this limestone-walled “mansion.”
