The Lewis Cabot Estate was a historic estate in Brookline, Massachusetts. The 39-room Jacobethan style main house was built in 1895 by Louis Cabot, son of Samuel and Eliza (Perkins) Cabot, with a design (and alterations in 1916) by R. Clipston Sturgis. The estate was landscaped by the Olmsted Brothers firm, whose offices were nearby. Henry Lapham, who acquired the estate in 1914 after Cabot's death, subdivided the grounds, but retained the main house. His daughter sold the house in 1942 to the Discalced Carmelite Fathers.[2]

The remnant portion of the estate was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1985; the main house has since been demolished.[2]
