This vintage colonial has an exceptional location in Watertown and convenient access to many other neighboring towns and the city of Boston, and although the rule of thumb in real estate is location, there is actually so much more to this property to discuss. Potential homebuyers will be drawn to its unusual and spacious 2,000+ floor plan, its period details, such as ornate moldings and elevated ceilings and its bonus spaces from top to bottom, inside and out.
This 85 year-old home possesses a spirit and character not duplicated in newer homes with its unique architectural and creative use of every space within its footprint. It boasts a second floor bonus room, third floor walk-up, banks of bay windows, an extended window seat, hardwood floors and plenty of eaves storage. All of which creatively uses the most of its square footage. Living alternatives were also expanded outdoors with a charming front porch and rear deck to enjoy New England's changing seasons and personally capture the picturesque settings of the landscape and neighborhood.
In total, there are nine finished rooms throughout three levels of living space. The first floor offers a welcoming fireplaced living room with a built-in china cabinet, formal dining area and a large kitchen with a pantry. The second level contains three generously-sized bedrooms and a bonus room that would make an ideal home office, den or children's playroom. The third story stretches its sleeping quarters with a fourth bedroom and an abundance of storage options.
This classically-designed home is a great representation of the solid foundation of Watertown's real estate market and a great portrayal that the imaginations of yesterday's builders continue to shine in local residences. Traditional, yes. Out of style, never. Homes with this architectural strength and resourceful designs will continue to inspire the owners and builders of today and tomorrow.
