This unwavering, secure colonial has proudly stood its ground within the heart of Bellevue Hill in West Roxbury for 87 years. Its classic architectural lines and exterior features, such as the enclosed portico, stone wall and manicured plantings, all contribute to its traditional stance and posture that many West Roxbury residents have admired and respected. Inside, those expectations are completely fulfilled with vintage moldings, wood accents, charming built-ins and cozy little nooks.
Those little touches are immediately evident as French doors from the front foyer open into a lovely front-to-back 22 x 12 square foot living room with a hand-carved mantel. A 12 x 12 square foot dining area provides the perfect setting for formal and holiday gatherings with its built-in china cabinet and the eat-in 18 x 10 square foot kitchen is an hospitable open space to easily cater meals while accommodating culinary visitors and offers a snug breakfast alcove for casual dining.
The second level houses an impressive 22 x 12 square foot master bedroom, two additional bedrooms at 12 x 12 and 10 x 10 square feet and a handy 16 x 10 square foot office/sunroom with three walls of windows drenching the space with natural light. A walk-up skylit attic currently provides a great amount of storage space, however, this area could easily be finished for future expansion.
In addition to its impeccable maintenance, this property has received many valuable updates, including a five-year young garage with storage, a new mudroom and a newer half bath. It also presents a unique oversized piece of level land with an oversized flagstone patio and a wonderfully nurtured landscape with a surrounding fence for ultimate privacy. This home is the perfect solution for the potential homebuyer who appreciates quality construction and architecture of West Roxbury's historical residential past but still desires modern amenities.
