This residence hosts a rich history. Once the home of two governors, Eben S. Draper and Alvan T. Fuller, 150 Beacon St. rests on the site that once held Isabella Stewart Gardner’s house, according to listing broker Duncan Donahue of the Donahue Realty Group at Keller Williams Realty. A plaque outside the home explains that when the art collector and philanthropist “moved to the Fenway in 1902, she stipulated that ‘her’ number, 152, never again be used on Beacon Street.”

Now the double-width residence encompasses 152 Beacon St. It was redeveloped by 150 Beacon Associates Hamilton Co. and Grassi Design Group to hold six units, including this third-floor home that’s on the market for $6,495,000, according to Donahue.

The 3,543-square-foot property boasts city and Charles River views. It offers three bedrooms, including a master suite with a fireplace (one of three in the home), two baths, and dressing rooms. There are 4.5 baths in all.

Other highlights of the home include direct elevator access to the garage, two parking spaces, a kitchen with high-end appliances that’s open to a family room with a private deck, and an in-unit laundry setup.

The dining room chandelier and the gas grill are not included in the property, according to the Multiple Listing Service.
