This handsome Victorian is one of the most unique homes potential Watertown homebuyers will find in town. Its distinctive architectural features pop within its neighbors with many distinguishing layers of slopes, twists and designs, admirers can only imagine what lies inside. Expectations of its interior will not disappoint with its abundance of period details and vintage character in charming built-ins, natural fibers and period details at every turn.
The home offers an abundance of living space with 2,332 square feet spread through four finished levels. The large 12 x 10 square foot entry foyer immediately displays its original elements with a convenient walk-in closet. The open living/dining room provides effortless flow for entertaining and a warm, inviting setting with beamed ceilings of dark wood and a fireplace. The eat-in kitchen is drenched in white to provide a fresh palette for personal decor and includes a pantry.
The second level boasts four generously-sized bedrooms at 14 x 13, 15 x 11, 13 x 12 and 13 x 11 square feet and contain many charming, custom details, such as built-ins, warm wood paneling, a window seat and bay windows for enchanting vignettes. The third floor provides great options for an au-pair or teenager suite with a spacious 16 x 14 square foot bedroom and a 16 x 10 square foot space that could be used as a den or office. The basement level offers a 15 x 10 square foot family room, laundry area and a half bath.
While the ascetics of this home are certainly enough to draw purchasing interest, this home also includes many structural attractions with its recent improvements. In 2010, it received a new heating system, oil tank and full insulation, in 2011, a new roof, and its exterior was painted this year. With its unrivaled looks, foundation enhancements and prime location, it's a wonder how this property is still available. Take even a quick look and its impossible not to come to the same conclusion.
