Iconic home hits the market

After 18 years, Harriett Adams wants to pass on one of the great loves of her life.
The Raphael House, a living legacy unto itself with more than 100 years of history on Ennis Avenue, is on the market. Adams has lived in the home for nearly two decades, and has deeply mixed emotions about her decision to list the house for sale. She feels strongly that it will require a special buyer to truly care for the home — often regarded among the city’s most prominent historical structures.
“It’s time for me to simplify,” Adams said. “I hope to find someone who will love this house. It’s a lot to take care of for any one person, and I’m at an age where I recognize I am going to be moving into another stage of my life.”
