This attached single family home is definitely a rare opportunity in today's real estate market. The structure was built circa 1900 and is quite a hidden gem nestled in a serene setting surrounded by a lush landscape of mature trees and plantings. Safe to say, this is not your typical Brookline property!
The home offers an open floor plan with ten spacious rooms and five bedrooms spread throughout three finished levels. Its period designs have thankfully been preserved with its rich architectural details proudly displayed, such as beamed ceilings, floor-to-ceiling built-ins, elevated ceilings, natural fibers, multiple porches and oversized windows drenching the rooms with natural sunlight.
The charming oversized front portico provides an fitting introduction into this eclectic home with its adobe color selections and beamed wood ceiling. Inside, the first level offers a lovely living room with a fireplace accented with an ornate mantel, a gorgeous intimate dining room, a welcoming and relaxed family room, cozy study and an elongated kitchen with stainless steel appliances and wood cabinets.
The second level consists of a master bedroom and two additional family bedrooms and a lovely, traditional sitting room. The third level expands the home's living options with two additional bedrooms and a full bath. This floor would also make an ideal au-pair or teenager suite or even a spacious home office.
The outdoor options in this home effortlessly produce many al fresco openings with its many porches, a patio and even the front, shielded entry where a dinette set currently awaits for a quiet intermission during a hectic day.
While home, residents will feel as if they have been transported into a countryside haven, yet the conveniences, retailing, restaurants and cultural activities of Brookline and Boston are still close by. This property offers the perfect fusion of country and city living.
