I recently received a marketing packet on The Waterworks at Chestnut Hill condominium development.

This is a great project located on the Reservoir on the border of Brighton and Brookline.

There are 108 homes across three buildings, each distinct in design and function.

Especially nice is The Leavitt unit in the Museum Residences.

From MLS:

The Museum Residences at The Waterworks at Chestnut Hill are four masterfully designed town-homes by the Graham Gund Partnership. Located across the magnificent Chestnut Hill Reservoir and next to the Museum for the Leavitt Steam Engine.

Enjoy your private au-pair suite, fitness/theatre room, private sauna, storage galore, 2-car garage, sitting room, office, 2 sun decks, massive walk-in custom closets, 6,557 +/- square feet, 3+ bedrooms, 5+ bathrooms, private elevator.

More about each of the three living styles at The Waterworks, after the break.


The smallest of the residential builds on the site, this restored 7 unit Carriage House is a veritable jewel box. Nestled between two of Boston’s most beautiful and historic buildings, Waterford’s upper level features a continuous band of glass that provides an interesting counterpoint to the strong masonry base of the ground level. Also restored and designed by Graham Gund Architects, this intimate offering provides both flats and townhomes, and features some of the nicest views across the restored Olmsted Brothers Landscape towards the Chestnut Hill Reservoir.


Designed by the nationally recognized local architectural firm, DiMella Shaffer Associates, Watermark is a timeless masterwork that fits seamlessly into its historic setting. Featuring 81 spacious residences, the units are finished with Poggenpohl cabinets, stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, hardwood flooring, and marble baths. This timeless building is oriented towards open space views including the magnificent Chestnut Hill Reservoir and Cassidy Park. Like all the offerings at The Waterworks at Chestnut Hill, the Watermark also overlooks the restored National Register Olmsted Brothers landscape.


A late 19th century Beaux Arts landmark, this magnificent historic structure has been preserved and adapted for residential living by world famous local architect, Graham Gund. Featuring 20 of the most unusual condominium residences anywhere, the building’s unique architectural features , from its imposing main entry to its distinctive tower, have been restored to their original grandeur. Whitehall, with the same high-end palette of finishes noted above, provides a one-of-a-kind residential opportunity overlooking the Chestnut Hill Reservoir and the manicured grounds of The Waterworks.

Surprisingly, the developer has placed a lot of useful information on the property’s website. This includes master deed, master trust, floor plans, etc. Also, certificates of insurance and all easement information. Very useful, very good idea. Not every developer goes to that length.
