10 Palmer Street is meticulously maintained, updated and ready for you to move right in. What a rare find, a single family tucked away in a popular neighborhood of mostly multi-family homes and right in the heart of a vibrant, highly desirable town. Stroll to Spy Pond with walking trails, sunset views, and a fully fenced playground. Commuters will love easy access to Bus 77, the Minuteman Bike Path, and Alewife Station. Explore Arlington Center with shopping and dining galore or enjoy a short distance to Capitol Square offering delicious bakeries, specialty shops, and a movie theater. Coffee lovers will delight in having Dunkin Donuts practically at your doorstep.
This immaculate home offers a practical, versatile layout combining a perfect blend of private spaces for working from home or virtual learning and large, inviting areas to gather for special family moments; so important as we spend more time at home these days.
The covered front entry welcomes you inside the foyer with sightlines stretching to the kitchen beyond. The formal living room, with shining hardwood floors, draws you in on the right with a large double window where plants will love to bask in the sunlight. This room offers the flexibility to use as a bedroom if desired.
Natural light fills the formal dining room, perfect for sharing special meals, with hardwood floors, crown molding, and an easy connection with the kitchen.
The bright, cheerful kitchen is spacious with plenty of room for two chefs to work together efficiently and has a modern feel with stainless steel appliances, abundant cabinetry for storage, gas cooking, crown molding, a decorative tin ceiling, and a tile backsplash. The newer flooring, replaced in 2019, was carefully selected to have a cozier feel while walking barefoot and is also more forgiving than tile when a dish accidentally drops. With its rear location, the kitchen is ideal for quietly preparing surprise breakfast treats before the rest of the family wakes up.
An exterior door connects with the secluded backyard oasis perfect for easy outdoor living. A ground level deck offers a safe place for the kids to play or an inviting space to dine al fresco during summer months. The backyard fence and surrounding tree canopy provides privacy for backyard enjoyment while the front landscape is great for learning to ride bikes, creative chalk drawing, and lots more, perfectly set back from the street for added safety. Raised garden beds are ready for your flower and vegetable gardens next season.
A wood burning fireplace offers a cozy feel with its brick surround in the family room where the hardwood floors continue. It is the perfect space to gather for movie night and useful for accommodating guests. A storage bench by the fireplace provides another great place to neatly tuck things away. A full bathroom on the first level offers convenience, featuring a tub with shower and a pedestal sink.
The second level is guaranteed to fit your family’s needs with two more bedrooms, a bonus room, and another full bathroom. Each bedroom offers privacy when needed for reading, studying, or to simply unwind at the end of a long day with hardwood flooring, ceiling fans, and ample closet space. The bonus room works well as a nursery, home office, or a private space for virtual learning. The full bathroom is tastefully done in neutral tones with a stylish white vanity, ceramic tile floor, and a tiled tub with shower. Laundry on the second level means added convenience for easily handling household tasks.
The lower level continues with a finished space perfect to use as a playroom, exercise area, or whatever you desire. The unfinished side of the basement provides additional storage. The home is highly energy efficient with new windows replaced in 2018 and full insulation throughout for the ultimate comfort during winter months. Solar panels, added in 2018, are fully owned for worry-free savings on monthly electric bills with an $840 annual revenue in SREC credits.
This home truly has it all, the ultimate privacy of single-family living and close to everything you need, yet perfectly tucked away for peace and quiet. In addition to the many nearby shopping and dining options, the Robbins and Fox libraries are also a short distance away. Walk to many area playgrounds and the Mystic River with trails and kayak entry points. Welcome to Arlington!
