We are Scott and Minter Richter of Minter & Richter Designs. We are lucky enough to own two beautiful Victorian homes right next door to each other in the historic neighborhood of Dorchester in Boston, MA.

The space
Fabulous Victorian home with three floors plus a basement for laundry. Built in 1860, the house is beautifully renovated on the interior. Large kitchen with all new appliances. The largest front porch in the area for summer, spring and fall. Great for enjoying a cocktail or cup of coffee and relaxing.

The Room where you sleep has a QUEEN size bed, two chairs and table, a dresser, night stands, and large, hanging closet. Directly across the hall is a shared bathroom with a 6-foot tub and shower. Soap, towels and other bathroom necessities provided.

The big, purple Victorian house next door is our residence so we are always there if you need us or NOT if you don't :)

Where you’ll be

Boston, Massachusetts, United States

Located within minutes of downtown Boston and Cambridge via the MBTA Subway. It is about a 15 minute walk to either the Shawmut or Ashmont station on the Red Line. From either T-stop, you can be downtown in minutes

Dorchester is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Boston. Culturally diverse and vibrant, it is loaded with fabulous restaurants, many within walking distance. Vietnamese, Chinese, Italian, Haitian, Jamaican, Irish (great Irish pubs nearby!) . There are also great gems like DBar just blocks away which is fabulous for cocktails and karaoke.
