The Norton-Johnson-Burleigh House at 85 Brattle Street in Cambridge, is a Gothic-Revival villa built in 1847. The house was influenced by the ideas on villa architecture of Andrew Jackson Downing, but was modeled on a specific pattern, attributed to Henry Austin of New Haven, as printed in The Builder’s Guide by Chester Hills of Hartford.
