Watertown Home of the Week: 3 Summit Road
This classic Watertown colonial has proudly stood for almost nine decades as retailing, restaurants and the enhancements of bustling Coolidge Corner have developed nearby.
This charming six room, 3 bedroom, 87 year-old colonial on Summit Road is a quintessential Watertown real estate prospect. It presents unstructured, clean architectural lines within a beautiful East Watertown neighborhood of equally lovely homes and an interior blueprint that provides comfort and well being within its secure walls.
As in many homes of its era, the traditional brick fireplaces takes center stage in the spacious 21 x 11 square foot living room as the primary focal point while the natural woodwork and beamed ceiling further reveal its quality materials and applications. The 13 x 11 square foot dining area provides an intimate, quiet setting for formal entertaining while the large 18 x 10 square foot eat-in kitchen provides a relaxed, welcoming hub for the family with a simple, tasteful decor of white wood cabinets and appliances, a cozy breakfast nook and an egress to an inviting screened-in porch when warmer weather draws residents outdoors.
The second level hosts three bedrooms, a generously-sized front-to-back 19 x 11 square foot master and two light-filled 12 x 9 square foot bedrooms.
The future owners of this pleasant property may want to apply a little cosmetic work to modernize its interior, but hopefully will preserve its character and classic spirit as homes of this temperament are simply not designed with these distinguishing traits anymore. It was built during a time when constructive integrity and quality were given the highest priorities and promises to provide its residents a refuge they can count on for many years.
