The Brande House is a historic house at 54 Woburn Street in Reading, Massachusetts. The 2.5 story wood frame house was built in 1895, and was a relatively sophisticated local example of the then-new Shingle style. The house has a mainly rectangular massing, with a projecting ell section on the right side and a single story porch in the crook of the L. The ell has a projecting gable end with three small oculus windows, while the front gable has a recessed section framed by Stick style half-timber trim.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984.[1]
