The Buildings at 15-17 Lee Street are an historic double house in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The 2.5 story wood frame house was built in 1856, and is a rare local instance of an Italianate villa built from a pattern book. It has paired arched windows on the first floor, a richly decorated front porch, and an extended cornice.[2]

The houses were listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.[1]
