The Beacon Hill Times is reporting:

The Beacon Hill Architectural Commission denied the front-elevation design for a single-family house at 124 Chestnut St. without prejudice at its July 18 hearing, “with direction that the degree of replication be determined for design of the new building,” according to William Young, the city’s assistant director for historic districts.

“The Commission directed only a replicative approach would be appropriate here, but the question is how replicative that approach will be,” William Young said. “The property owner would likely have some latitude to correct the proportions of openings and to ensure that the brick used is of a proportionate color and scale.”

We assume they’re referring to the above design that 124 Chestnut owner Dean Stratouly, whose plans for demolition and reconstruction of the original building has caused quite a stir on Beacon Hill, posted on his web site earlier this month. Curbed Boston previously reported on the new design.

So we’re assuming the commission rejected what you see above. Right?

Anyway, Stratouly may soon be meeting with local officials to work out some sort of compromise, the Times reports.

The saga never ends.
