Watertown Home of the Week: 65 Bates Road
This beautiful Cape has been on the Watertown real estate market less than a week and is holding its first open house this weekend.
This charming Cape is located in one of the most sought after Watertown areas; country-like setting, quiet picturesque neighborhood, lots of privacy, yet only minutes to the Harvard Square bus line and many commerce choices throughout Watertown and its surrounding towns. Its interior reinforces its suburban retreat with spacious, welcoming rooms and a beautifully landscaped over third of an acre lot at the end of a quiet street. Prospective homebuyers looking for the best of the city and the suburbs, search no further.
Guests are greeted in the front foyer and guided into the neighboring 23 x 12 square foot fireplaced living room. For more relaxed occasions, they may even pass through this room, through a French door, and into a charming 13 x 9 square foot four-season heated sunroom (not included in the listed square footage). A 12 x 12 square foot dining area offers the ideal setting for formal entertaining and holidays while for daily enjoyment, residents can unwind and dine in the 12 x 11 square foot eat-in kitchen within its cozy breakfast nook drenched in natural wood, including a built-in bench seat.
The second level hosts spacious and enchanting lodging accommodations that include architectural dormers with three bedrooms at 15 x 12, 12 x 12 and 12 x 9 square feet and a full, family bath.
This 66 year-old property still displays the character and spirit of its era and offers its future residents the benefits of its sturdy, reliable construction. It has also received some valuable enhancements to its foundation, such as replacement windows and a new heating system.
This classic Cape is a quintessential example of New England's timeless real estate market and the quality of properties offered within the Watertown lines. But these opportunities do not remain available for long. It came on to the market less than a week ago and its first open house is this weekend. Many will take this opening to view its magnificent interior, but only one fortunate future owner will walk away with a residence that will nurture for generations.
