Editor's note: The house of the week alternates between Roslindale and West Roxbury homes.
This classic colonial on Aldrich St. is a quintessential model of Roslindale's rich real estate market. Curbside, it proudly displays its period architectural roots and its freshly painted chocolate brown exterior and contrasting white moldings stand out amidst its neighbors. Its newly painted interior and gleaming hardwood floors also boast a home that has been lovingly cared for and restored by its current owners.
A traditional farmer's porch warmly welcomes guests into its fold as well as providing an enchanting setting to watch the changing seasons. The stained glass doorway reveals a glimpse of the vintage magic that waits inside, beginning with a large inviting living room with bow windows and an intimate dining area with custom cabinetry. The lovely and hospitable eat-in kitchen, an adjacent bonus room and full bath complete the tour on this level.
The second floor hosts four generously-sized bedrooms and a spacious finished room in the attic, not officially heated but receives plenty of residual warmth from the lower floors, would make an ideal family room or children's playroom. The dry, clean basement currently contains a laundry area and quarter bath, but could easily be renovated for additional future living space. The bonus room off of the kitchen could also be converted into an additional bathroom, which makes this property extremely attractive for skilled homebuyers looking for a compact residence with real expansion possibilities.
This home is officially listed with 1,811 square feet of living space, however, the attic and bonus room on the first floor are not included in those total dimensions. With this added space and its growth potential, this property could be and become a home that will fulfill the needs of a growing family.
