This vintage colonial is a perfect representation of West Roxbury's rich residential history.
The long-time owners of this classic West Roxbury Tudor colonial have found security and refuge within its walls and well-established neighborhood for many years and once Patch subscribers have finished reading this descriptive narrative, its charm and appeal will be unmistakably apparent. Its traditional exterior architectural lines are the perfect introduction to its vintage roots while inside layers of quality craftsmanship and design are gradually unveiled with rich woods, elevated ceilings and seamless floor plan.
The first level is comprised of four common rooms, beginning with a warm, fireplaced living room that welcomes guests through the front entry. The country kitchen has been nicely updated with upgraded cabinetry and countertops and spills effortlessly into a lovely dining area. The last common room on this floor, the family room, reflects the comfortable ambiance of this home and promises to draw families and friends with its relaxed setting. A fireplaced family room in the finished basement offers a second option for casual gatherings and stretches the listed the 1,464 square feet of living space within this home.
A traditional wood stairway grants residents passage to the second private level which hosts three generously-sized bedrooms and a full bath.
At 82 years old, future owners of this lovely property can rest assured that it was constructed at a time when builders set a precedence for strength and resilience and previous and current owners have embraced that pride in preserving its residential heritage. A one-car garage and elongated driveway provide plenty of off-street parking while its spacious and well-manicured lot offer many options for outdoor enjoyment and recreation. The price-point of this lovely home, with all it has to offer, will be an appealing factor for many potential homebuyers, but its timeless hospitable spirit and comfortable settings are what will ultimately win them over.
