Brookline Home of the Week: 23 Harvard Ave., Unit 2
This spacious bi-level condominium in an antique Victorian has recently received major renovations but its historical spirit was graciously preserved.
The purchase of this spacious condominium is the perfect alternative/transition for single-family owners. Only three units comprise this historic 132 year-old classic Victorian and its 2,641 square feet of living space is nicely spread throughout two levels. This structure was completely renovated only five short years ago so while many of its vintage architectural features and details still remain, it also boasts many upgraded appliances, conveniences and designing trends to comply with the preferences of today's savvy homebuyer.
The first level consists of a grand 18 x 16 square foot fireplaced living room with rounded windows, a gracious 20 x 18 square foot formal dining area, a large 32 x 15 square foot family room and a 21 x 15 square foot state-of-the-art eat-in kitchen with stainless steel appliances, premier cabinetry, a center island and lovely casual breakfast room with a French door leading to the rear deck.
The second level takes full advantage of this home's generous footprint and hosts spacious accommodations for sleeping and alternative options for personal preferences. The magnificent 17 x 13 square foot master suite boasts a vaulted ceiling, turret and full private bath, while two additional bedrooms at 15 x 12 and 15 x 14 square feet, a full family bath, a 19 x 10 square foot study and a 9 x 6 square foot bonus room complete this floor's offerings.
A reasonable monthly fee covers both personal and general expenses including water and sewer costs, master insurance, exterior maintenance and snow and refuse removal. This unit's purchase also incorporates two-car tandem parking, basement storage with a private room and central air conditioning.
Future residents will be pleased with this home's convenient location at the end of a private way and nearby bustling Coolidge Corner and Brookline Village, the Longwood medical area and public transportation and its easy access to downtown Boston. Brookline is such a resourceful setting for commuters and those interested in combining suburban living with the pulse and excitement of the city. This blend of venues, along with this home's eclectic design, offers a winning collective lifestyle for any prospective homebuyer.
