The Gen. Samuel Chandler House is a historic house at 8 Goodwin Road in Lexington, Massachusetts. The two story wood frame house was built in 1846 to a design by architect Isaac Melvin. The Italianate style house features a bracketed shallow-pitch roof, and a three-story campanile-style tower with a steeply pitched pyramidal roof and three-part round-arch windows with balconies at its top level. A hip-roof porch with arch-forming brackets extends along one side.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1977.[1]
