Though this looks like the kind of building in which one might expect to rendezvous with Lord or Lady Grantham, it is actually a product of the 21st century. According to town records, the greenhouse was constructed in 2002 by Robert E. McCamant and John W. “Jack” Croucher, who live at 72 Commercial Street. They owned this property along Ericsson Avenue until 2018, when it was purchased by Steven M. Ballerini and his husband, Colin K. Bohrer, of San Francisco. There aren’t many greenhouses in town, outside of the one at 1 Duncan Lane in which Charles A. “Stormy” Mayo III tends his extraordinary collection of dahlias. But it’s not nearly as extravagant as this lacy structure.
