Watertown Home of the Week: 121 Lexington St.

This lovely colonial offers four bedrooms and the most charming period details.

Quality vintage architecture is what potential homebuyers will immediately notice and admire when they step foot in this 82-year-old Colonial on Lexington Street. This home is filled with period details that cannot be duplicated by any new construction and it is those features that make up its warm spirit and comfortable settings. Just a few examples of these charming characteristics are, layers of the original natural woodwork, stained glass windows, elevated ceilings, gleaming hardwood floors, a walk-up third floor and a beautiful wooden staircase.

A large attractive front foyer with a classic wood staircase is the perfect introduction into this historical gem. The foyer leads into the 18 x 13 square foot family room with a brick fireplace with flanking stained glass windows. A stunning columned threshold with glass-front built-ins offers a formal presentation into the 18 x 13 square foot dining area with oversized windows drenching the space with natural sunlight. The 18 x 10 square foot eat-in kitchen is a hospitable culinary center where family will regularly congregate and even includes a walk-in pantry for supplemental storage.

Probably one of the most surprising elements of this home is that it includes four generously sized bedrooms on the second level at 18 x 13, 15 x 13, 13 x 11 and 11 x 11 square feet. This many bedrooms offers residents incredible flexibility to adapt to personal family needs and preferences.

Another great feature of this home is its location. It is conveniently sited just steps from public transportation and all the shopping and restaurants that Watertown Square has to offer. This property must be on every potential homebuyer's tour list, and should be placed as their first visit. This is one available Watertown home that should not be missed.
