It may difficult to identify the first feature that will impress prospective Brookline homebuyers on this classic 75 year-old brick residence. Some may say, location. It is sited in on nearly half an acre of land in the Chestnut Hill area, an ideal site to enjoy nature and have suburban and city conveniences virtually at your doorstep. They may lean, however, to the fabulous kitchen and family room addition that now provides spacious accommodations for large families, their friends and relatives to enjoy. Or maybe they'll be attracted to the global ambiance provided by its four cozy fireplaces warming three common rooms and the bedroom. These examples are just a sampling of the magnificent features this home is prepared to offer its new residents.
The calming ambiance from a fireplace is available in three common rooms: the 24 x 14 square foot living room, the 15 x 22 square foot formal dining area and the 19 x 24 square foot family room addition that includes a wall of custom built-ins. The second component of that modern addition is the 19 x 13 square foot state-of-the-art kitchen that is fully equipped with premier ingredients that include granite surfaces, a sub-zero refrigerator, a large, gas-fired range, Brazilian cherry flooring and a generous dining area. The first level also offers an ideal guest or au-pair suite with a 17 x 12 square foot bedroom.
The second level hosts a luxurious 16 x 12 square foot master suite with a lovely sitting area, an abundance of closet space and custom cabinetry and a full private bath. There are also three bedrooms at 16 x 12, 15 x 15 square feet with the third bedroom boasting a private fireplace.
Resident amenities were given significant consideration in the original fabrication and subsequent renovations with a two-car attached garage, central air conditioning, sprinkler system, bluestone patio and an enclosed terrace. This home, even when it was created 75 years ago was obviously granted the finest designs and materials to service generations of Brookline residents with an unparalleled level of comfort and beauty.
