Watertown Home of the Week: 11 Lovell Road

Distinctive Arts & Crafts home offers a slice of historic architecture mixed with contemporary designs.

Ordinary Arts & Crafts colonial? There really is no such thing. This style home is known for tradition and character and this lovely property on Lovell Road lives up to that reputation. It features all the charm of its 1930's era with detailed millwork, hardwood floors, a farmer's porch and rooms drenched in rich wood, but it has also been united with many modern updates and designs to create an eclectic comfortable living space.

In total, the home boasts nine rooms and four bedrooms within a versatile 2,256 square foot floor plan and three finished levels. The first floor offers a spacious 20 x 12 square foot living room with a brick fireplace and an intimate 12 x 12 square foot dining area. The 13 x 12 square foot eat-in kitchen exhibits many functional and symbolic traits with open shelving and a walk-in pantry with glass fronts.

Three bedrooms are located on the second floor at 13 x 12, 12 x 11 and 15 x 12 square feet as well as a 12 x 9 home office and a full bath. The dormered master suite is privately placed on the third level with atrium doors to a balcony, a sky-lit sitting room and a full bath.

This home's exterior offers an equally charming presentation to the neighborhood and its residents with an inviting farmer's porch and a private back yard with a deck that overlooks mature, lush plantings and includes a shed and a one-car garage.

This property is sited in the prestigious Oakley Country Club area, an attractive and sought after district in Watertown with public transportation, retailing and restaurants nearby. For potential homebuyers who are looking for a home with rich roots filled with classic New England architecture and craftsmanship, this is the place.
