Editor's note: The Home of the Week article alternates between Roslindale and West Roxbury homes.
Three condominium units make up this vintage 92 year-old Roslindale colonial and while each residence has been beautifully reconditioned and upgraded, they still reveal and reflect the structure's rich historical roots. Period architectural lines provide a unique and solid foundation to compliment today's design preferences while rich woods in the hardwood floors and crown moldings initiate warm settings and declare the home's epoch stature. The current owners have decorated the unit perfectly with respect to its past yet have preserved its characteristic features to offer an eclectic mix of the past and the future.
The top floor, two-bedroom unit now available for purchase offers five spacious rooms on one level for convenient single-floor living. The 13 x 14 square foot living room provides a large, comfortable space for entertaining or relaxation. The 12 x 13 square foot dining area boasts a charming built-in china cabinet, oversized windows and an egress to bring the celebrations outdoors onto a lovely and generous porch that offers an elevated view of the back yard and neighborhood. The elongated 6 x 10 square foot kitchen conveniently adjoins the dining area and provides plenty of counter and storage space with still room left for many culinary accessories.
The bedrooms are liberally sized at 12 x 13 and 11 x 11 square feet and the full tiled bath has been drenched in soothing neutrals and updated accompaniments. This unit also offers bonus amenities, such as private basement storage and two off-street parking spots, one in the garage.
The developed Roslindale Village is just a short distance away and offers a commuter rail station and many great shops, restaurants and cultural events. In many ways, this condominium structure, local real estate market and Roslindale Square has transformed over the years offering the best of the past and always evolving into the future.
