Cole House was a historic house at 12 Mason Street in Winchester, Massachusetts. The 2.5 story wood frame Stick/Eastlake, Queen Anne style house was built in 1886 by Frank and Emma Cole, who lived there until 1929. It was one of the most elaborate displays of Stick style decoration with extensive woodwork in its gable ends, and carved braces on its porches.[2]

The house was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1989,[1] and has since been considered demolished since it was moved about 10 yards south of its original location and is now oriented facing Highland Avenue in Winchester. It was considered demolished because although it was moved in its then-current form, the site was changed and a garage was built under the structure.[3]
