Even through pictures, prospective homebuyers can envision the warmth that eludes from this wonderful West Roxbury colonial. At 81 years old, it still proudly presents many period details, from its genuine gumwood detailing, to custom built-ins, the traditional wood staircase and even the second floor sunroom. And while its foundation continues to provide a solid base, its previous and current residents have worked hard to preserve and enhance its structural composition with recurring maintenance and updates, including a newer kitchen, heating and updated electrical systems.
While formally listed at 1,448 square feet, a lovely finished family room in the basement boosts its dimensions and augments its usage options. The first level consists of an inviting living room with a traditional brick fireplace as its focal point and an intimate dining area with a charming built-in china cabinet. The remodeled eat-in kitchen will quickly become the hub of this home with its hospitable and welcoming ambiance and sliders that easily integrate indoor activities outdoors to the attached deck, patio and private, fenced in yard.
The second level offer very comfortable sleeping accommodations with three generously-sized bedrooms supported by a full bath. The bonus and perhaps most frequently-used room on this floor, however, will be the sunny, heated enclosed porch; an ideal spot to greet each day and enjoy leisurely evenings before turning in. To further enhance its room options, this home also offers a great finished family room in the basement.
By its consistent maintenance and condition, it is clearly evident that this property has provided many years of comfort and security to its residents and has been a much loved home for its past tenures. That residential torch is now being passed to another fortunate family who have the opportunity and responsibility to reside and prosper under its protective roof.
