Potential homebuyers looking for a slice of residential Watertown history, the search if over. This gracious 88 year-old colonial offers many features that continually make period homes some of the most sought after properties in New England. A lot of its charm and character are thanks to the preservation of its natural fibers with gumwood beamed ceilings, French doors and natural wood and brick. It has also, however, received many modern upgrades and amenities that only enhance its eclectic flavor and style.
The first level consists of a warm and welcoming 27 x 12 square foot living room with a wood-beamed ceiling, brick fireplace and oversized windows drenching the space with natural sunlight and a set of French doors lead into a charming 13 x 12 square foot dining area. The 14 x 12 square foot eat-in kitchen is a wonderfully large and hospitable space and can easily accommodate larger families for seating and food preparation with its abundance of granite counter space and oak cabinets. This level also offers a lovely 19 x 9 square foot sunroom and raised deck where three seasons can be wonderfully enjoyed.
The second floor boasts four spacious corner bedrooms at 12 x 12, 13 x 11, 12 x 11 and 12 x 12 square feet and a full family bath. A fully finished lower level adds bonus living space for an au-pair or in-law suite and a large walk-up expandable attic with a high peak allows for future expansions.
This property is located in the highly sought after Oakley Country Club neighborhood, which only enhances its appeal after viewing its gracious and enchanting interior. Yes, location is vitally important and this home satisfies that criteria, but it also offers comfort, security and beauty, equally significant features in the home buyer process, and this property has them all.
