Commuters will love the short stroll to public transportation at the end of the road with bus routes to Alewife Station. The historic Minuteman National Park with miles of walking and biking trails is only a short distance away. First impressions are met by the home’s peaceful wooded setting accented by widespread perennial plantings and wildflowers anxiously awaiting the arrival of spring.

The carport allows for ease in managing an active lifestyle offering a covered entry from the car to the enclosed porch. The heated porch is both a welcoming introduction to the home as well as a cheerful sunroom to relax and unwind in surrounded by the sights and sounds of nature. A large workshop adjoining the porch provides additional storage space to conveniently organize garden tools or whatever you desire with a wall of built-in shelving.

Newly refinished hardwood floors and an abundance of natural light flow throughout the home’s immaculate interior offering a versatile floor plan designed to fit your family’s needs. A French door opens to the spacious and sunny formal living room with a large picture window. During winter months, the angle of the morning sun brightens this room with a delightful glow offering the perfect place to begin your day. A wood burning fireplace creates a focal point with its brick surround and tile hearth, providing a warm and inviting atmosphere on chilly nights.

The bright and cheerful kitchen delivers the perfect space to prepare favorite family recipes with red birch cabinetry, ceramic tile flooring, a tile backsplash, recessed lighting, and a newer dishwasher replaced in 2015. A large window over the sink offers tranquil views of the landscape beyond. Entertain guests in the formal dining room as the beautifully finished hardwood floors continue to span. A wall of built-in shelving offers the perfect space to display treasured dinnerware.

The home continues to unfold with a huge family room full of natural light featuring large picture windows to showcase the surrounding landscape from every direction. Enjoy an occasional glimpse of birds and other small wildlife. Beautiful hardwood flooring spans this delightful room perfect for family activities or entertaining guests. Gather around the home’s second wood burning fireplace while sharing a bottle of wine and conversation or cozy up with the family on movie night. The family room is large enough to accommodate an office nook, a bonus area for games and rainy-day activities, or space to exercise. An exterior door from the family room provides a great connection to the private, tree-lined backyard and beyond.

The master bedroom is spacious with gleaming hardwood floors and a sliding glass door to the deck and backyard. A bonus room adjoining the master bedroom works well as a reading nook or office with a large sunny window above a built-in desk area and further flows to the first of two full bathrooms.

Two more generously sized family bedrooms are perfectly positioned within easy access of the home’s second full bathroom. The bedrooms are full of natural light with hardwood floors and ample closet space. The bathrooms have an updated feel in neutral tones featuring pedestal sinks and tiled tubs with showers.

Perfectly situated to enjoy all that Lexington has to offer, this home is close to the walking trails within the historic Minuteman National Park. Commuting is a breeze with the #76 bus to Alewife station only steps away on Wood Street and easy highway access. Meet up with friends for a night out at the nearby Waxy O’Connors Pub. Be a part of a highly renowned school system and immerse yourself in the town’s rich history. What a wonderful opportunity to live in one of Lexington’s finest neighborhoods.
