Though dwarfing its neighbors, The Tudor unifies a diversity of Beacon Hill and Back Bay styles - brick bowfront, French Second Empire, Queen Anne and Richardsonian Romanesque - creating a captivating castle that “fits into the hill perfectly” and “provides an abundance of outlooks, nooks and bays for every apartment.”
