West Roxbury Home of the Week: 20 Libbey St.

The first open house of this charming West Roxbury Cape will be held this weekend.

Be one of the first prospective homebuyers to view this sweet Cape on Libbey St. This home just came onto the real estate market just three short days ago and with its impeccable condition, vintage charm and price, it will appeal to a large variety of prospective homebuyers and quickly generate a lot of interest and activity. Its classic exterior architecture sets a perfect introduction to what lies within its four walls where its natural woodwork and crown moldings were thankfully and beautifully preserved and layers of period accents reveal its hospitable, warm spirit.

Once visitors pass through the welcoming, covered portico, they are greeted by a front foyer and invited into the lovely 12 x 16 square foot fireplaced living room and an intimate 12 x 12 square foot dining area. The open kitchen is especially large for this style and age home with its 16 x 15 square foot dimensions and includes wood cabinets, a cozy kitchen nook and access to the oversized rear deck for al fresco dining and to enjoy the views of the fenced-in, private yard. This level also includes a 12 x 11 square foot bedroom/den and a half bath.

The second floor hosts two large bedrooms at 18 x 12 and 18 x 10 square feet with delightful vignettes from the exterior dormers and a contemporary black and white full, tiled bath.

Commuters and families will be happy with this property's desirable location in the Parkway district and with its convenient walking distance to the Boston rail station. This lovely Cape is a quintessential West Roxbury residence where comfort and warmth are its most endearing qualities and a great example of why prospective homebuyers continually look to this Boston neighborhood to establish their roots. This property, however, rises above others on the real estate market with its exceptional condition and genuine character.
