George S. Harwood House and Stable

14 Ivanhoe Street
Newton, Mass.

Year Built: 1886
Year Demolished: 1930s

Charles Brigham designed this house and stable for George S. Harwood in 1886. According to the Sturgis and Brigham dissolution agreement, the house cost approximately $30,000 ($300 commission), the stable cost $5,500 ($110 commission) and the inside finish was estimated to cost $4,000 ($400 commission).

Unfortunately, George Harwood died in 1894 and left a wife, Ellen, who survived until 1928. Thereafter, their son George took over the property. The house was likely demolished sometime in the 1930s as it is no long on the plot.
