Home of the Week: 18 Maria Lane
This sturdy Roslindale ranch is an exciting opportunity to purchase a quality and attractive property that will last and evolve through generations.
Editor's note: The Home of the Week article rotates between Roslindale and West Roxbury homes.
This traditional brick ranch truly speaks to the prospective homebuyer who not only admirers the craftsmanship of Boston's rich residential history but also appreciates the charm and character of this neighborhood's mature residences. This 55 year-old property has the experience of securing its residents for over half a decade and other than some needed work down the road, this retro-chic property is the perfect canvas for the savvy homebuyer who recognizes the value of solid bones with significant updates.
Its convenient single-level floor plan will appeal to many many potential owners with both bedrooms and a full bath easily accessible on the main level. The fireplaced living room is a bright and inviting space with sage green walls and a bay window drenching the space with natural sunlight as well as the spacious and whimsical eat-in country kitchen that blends vintage hues of lime green and yellow. The finished basement adds another dimension to this compact home with a fireplaced family room lined with warm, rustic paneling and includes a large laundry center, storage room and second full bath.
The level lot and location are highly influential considerations in the evaluation and purchase evaluation process and this property will not disappoint. It is sited on a lovely, fenced-in 5,188 square foot private lot on a quiet cul-de-sac within central Roslindale and nearby the bustling and evolving Roslindale Village. This home can certainly be occupied immediately and new owners may want to freshen up some areas to their preferences, but this property offers so much to its residents for the price, and oh the potential. It just came on the market the day before Thanksgiving and its first open house is today, 1-2 p.m. Be one of the first to view this budding prospect.
