Brookline Home of the Week: 447 Washington St., Unit 2.
This beautiful and extraordinary transformed condominium unit offers modern-day convenience within an incredibly vintage setting.
The interior of this extraordinary 162 year-old Victorian is precisely what one would expect as they admire its vintage architectural design and distinctive detailing. Its blueprint is incredibly unique and interesting and many of its period features were preserved or enhanced, such as decorative and stained glass windows and ceiling and wall fabrications that offer many inviting nooks and alcoves. While completed renovated this year, it has also thankfully retained its character that invites residents and guests into its enchanting web.
With its transformation now complete, four condominium units now establish the "Candler Cottage" association. Unit 2 boasts 1,585 square feet of living space within an exposed floor plan which not only visually enlarges the main living area but provides a graceful fluidity for effortless entertaining and traffic flow. The common areas are committed to that open outline with subtle, partial dividers and oversized thresholds, gothic windows, recessed lighting and a stained-glass skylight drenching the areas with natural sunlight. The kitchen has been resourcefully conceived
to work with the angles of its structure and provide all the necessary
ingredients for a successful culinary center with an abundance of cabinet and counter space and stainless steel appliances.
The three bedrooms and two full baths also exhibit those distinguishing shapes creating personal havens that transport their occupants to a time where architecture was the primary and most significant component of a room.
This sub division also includes many amenities for their residents, including central air conditioning, a patio and a sprinkler system to maintain its flourishing gardens. Pets are also more than welcome to accompany their owners to this new and impressive residence.
This property offers its residents an opportunity to live in a home many people have admired for generations and experience a slice of Brookline's rich architectural history. And the best part? They will be free to enjoy a lifestyle free from costly renovations or updates with its new restorations.
Their only responsibility will be to relax and enjoy.
