Editor's note: The home of the week article rotates between Roslindale and West Roxbury homes.
Vintage Roslindale. That is the immediate impression that will come to mind when first viewing this lovely 105 year-old Gambrel colonial on Denton Ter. Many of its period details have thankfully been preserved with original moldings, French doors and layers of rich wood throughout each room. It also offers an incredibly spacious and versatile floor plan with 2,400 square feet of living space throughout eight rooms and three levels, effectively using every viable space within its generous footprint.
The thorough planning and building of this home with limiting this floor to only three rooms allowed for liberal dimensions and its occupants to really soak in its unique architecture. Residents and visitors enter this gracious home through a charming front porch and welcoming foyer enhanced with mahogany newel posts and banisters. The living and dining areas boast bow windows drenching the space with natural sunlight and are separated by elegant French doors and the open kitchen awaits the touches of personal culinary enhancements. The second floor hosts three bedrooms and an office, all with hardwood flooring, while the finished third story offers an expansive master suite with a full, private bath, walk-in closet and skylights.
A sizeable fenced-in rear yard with a large deck and bordering plantings provide plenty of privacy and naturally blends suburban surroundings within the convenience of a city neighborhood.
If a residential purchase is not yet in the budget, future residents can still experience the freedom and security of single-home living because this beautiful property is also available as a rental. These varying occupancy options leaves no stone unturned for interested parties who wish to reside within this lovely neighborhood of Boston.
