This truly special, beautifully updated Cape is set privately on a secluded lot on a quiet cul de sac and is graced by amazing, seasonal lake views from the entire rear of the home. You will love the perfect blend of beautiful views and spectacular outdoor spaces that this immaculate, move-in-ready home has to offer. The prime location is within walking distance to Bishop Elementary School, steps to public transportation, and close to Arlington’s town center with shopping, dining, coffee shops, access to the Minuteman Bike Path, and much more.

You will find tranquility and comfort in every corner of this sunlit sanctuary. The home’s freshly painted interior welcomes you with bright, airy living spaces perfect for comfortable living and entertaining. Cozy up around the fireplace in the inviting living room with hardwood floors, a ceiling fan, glass slider to the deck, and a seamless transition to the versatile dining room with a cathedral ceiling, skylights, and walls of windows which capture the beauty and peacefulness of the glistening lake beyond.

The dining room is a flexible space that would also work well as a sunroom, sitting area, or den- it’s up to you to decide!

Another glass slider in the dining room not only welcomes the sunshine but also offers an easy connection with the expansive deck and private backyard beyond, a nature oasis of mature trees and colorful perennial plantings that transition with the seasons. Gardeners will appreciate the front yard with well-established beds for planting, while the fully fenced backyard is perfect for summertime recreation, offering a safe place for kids and pets to play. Beneath the upper deck there is an additional covered deck and screened porch which creates a secret haven that is tucked away and a perfect breakout space for outdoor relaxation.

The bright, white contemporary kitchen is bathed in sunlight, offering sleek and stylish cabinetry, hardwood floors, recessed lighting, a white tile backsplash, a peninsula to expand the chef’s workspace, and an informal dining area. A garden window is the perfect place for your treasured houseplants to bask in the natural light.

The flexible floor plan is guaranteed to fit your family’s needs with a main level primary or guest suite. The bedroom is sunny and cheerful, with hardwood floors, a new light fixture, double windows to showcase those scenic lake views, and a large, updated full bathroom that has a spa-like feel with an oversized, tiled steam shower, pedestal sink, and a built-in towel warmer.

The second level continues to impress with two more generous bedrooms, the perfect retreat at the end of a long day. Both bedrooms are bathed in the glow of sunlight, with double windows overlooking the rear of the home to enjoy the lakeside vistas. The bedrooms feature hardwood floors, ample closets, skylights, and easy access to the shared full bathroom, beautifully updated with a tiled tub and shower and a built-in towel warmer. A spacious cedar closet and a linen closet offers additional storage.

More space awaits on the walkout, finished lower level with a cozy family room offering the home’s second fireplace and a versatile bonus room that would be perfect as an office, playroom, or studio. A glass paneled door welcomes the natural light into the lower level and offers easy access to the yard. A half bathroom, storage room, and spacious laundry area add the finishing touches to the lower level.

So close to everything, but just far enough away to enjoy peace and privacy at the end of Mystic View Terrace, this dream home and its spectacular lakeside views are one-of-a-kind! Arlington’s town center is 1.5 miles away – only a short drive, or walk if you prefer, to enjoy the specialty shops and all the delicious dining options. Be a part of the popular Bishop Elementary School community and the brand-new, state-of-the-art Arlington High School. Welcome home to one of Arlington’s most sought-after neighborhoods!

Additional Information

Frequently Asked Questions

1 - What does it mean that this is a private road? The town takes care of snow removal, trash and recycling pickup. Any repair or paving of the road is taken care of by the abutters. There is no HOA or existing fund. Road is in excellent condition so will not need repair or to be redone for a long time. One benefit of living on a private road is that overnight parking is permitted. 

2 - Where is the back of the property? The property extends to the road behind the property. The back fence has a gate opening to a path that zigzags through raised beds down to the bottom of the hill.

3 - Where are the propane tanks? They are hidden behind the fence in the front of the property. Accessible from the street.

4 - What are the utility costs?  We do not know. The seller has never lived in the home.

5 - I heard this is an estate sale. Will there be any delays for closing? No, the home is vacant and the seller can close anytime.

6 - What is a cedar closet? Cedar protects your wool clothing and blankets from moths.

Corrections to the Listing:

1 - There are 2 heat pumps/ mini-splits, not 3. One is in the living room, and the other is in the bedroom to the left when you go up the stairs.

2 - The home does not have a garbage disposal.
