You don’t need to hang much art if you buy 15 Catlin Road in Brookline because the walls are a masterpiece. 

Built in 1890, the five-bed, 4.5-bath property in Fisher Hill Estates was originally part of a larger estate. Measuring 7,058 square feet, it features a variety of murals in the trompe l’oeil style, which creates the illusion of a real scene. The home is listed for $5,288,000.

“The house is timeless and gracious,” said Jeff Groper of the Jeff Groper Group, who has the listing. “It’s got amazing Old-World charm and details throughout the whole entire house. It’s almost like when you walk in, it feels like Versailles, because it has high ceilings and moldings and murals. It really feels like you’re walking into royalty.”

The foyer has a wall of mirrors and a grand staircase that cascades upward, where you’ll see intricate murals featuring nautical and Old-World scenes. The living room, originally a ballroom, has three large windows and a fireplace, as well as a door that leads out to a garden.
