Centrally located with superior walkability to enjoy all that vibrant Capitol Square has to offer, this immaculately renovated and refinished home offers the perfect blend of original craftsmanship, period details, and modern updates showing true pride of ownership. A home for all seasons nestled amongst several hardscaped gardens and enclosed on all sides by a cedar wood fence or buttressed rock wall for privacy. Take your pick of where to greet the morning sun coming up over the greenery of the bike path, from the lower or upper walkable English gardens, or the four-season sun porch. Enjoy the amazing sunsets over Spy Pond from the mahogany deck, the living room bay window, or from the master suite windows. A large bay of windows, richly appointed with wood trims, welcomes the sunshine in the formal living room with gleaming hardwood floors. The living room opens further to an inviting sitting area by a pellet stove, the perfect place to cozy up on chilly nights.
Entertain in the formal dining room with a charming built-in china cabinet, stunning wainscoting with blended tone wood panels, shining hardwood floors, and a large triple window for abundant natural light; a wonderful setting for sharing special meals with family and friends.
A seamless transition opens to the modern and stylish kitchen where the chef will delight with granite counters, stainless-steel appliances, hardwood flooring, a breakfast bar peninsula, recessed lighting, built-in shelving, and plenty of workspace for creating family-favorite recipes.
The backyard English garden is exquisite, fully enclosed by cedar fencing. For outdoor rest and relaxation, there are large, exclusive-use garden areas separated by high lattices brimming with decorative vines. Imagine summer days dining al fresco on a cozy raised rock platform for two, a larger area for leisurely family dinners, and a grill area for quick lunches. Garden spaces bloom all year for vivid colors throughout the changing seasons, with raised stonelined beds, evergreens, dogwood, birch, maple, and oak trees lining the property. Enjoy an exclusive entry to the Minuteman Bike Path from your very own backyard. Buttressed stone wall accents separate the bike path from the property for privacy.
Two generous bedrooms on the unit’s main level are perfectly placed to form a private suite sharing an updated bathroom full of modern style. Shining hardwood floors grace the sunny, cheerful bedrooms to use for family or accommodating guests. The bathroom is beautifully finished featuring a pedestal sink and a tiled tub with shower
Retreat to the unit’s upper level to find the spacious and private master suite with an adjoining office. The master bedroom has wall-to-wall carpeting, recessed lighting, ceiling fan, skylights, and a cathedral ceiling stretching high above for added expansiveness. Doors access the eaves for additional storage. An adjoining office is perfect for working comfortably from home in addition to the built-in desk area within the master bedroom, creating a private office nook. The master bathroom features an oversized tiled shower with a frameless glass door, skylights, and a stylish vanity. It is easy to spend the entire day in the master suite with multiple sitting areas, study nooks, and sunlight streaming in from the windows and skylights. A perfect place to enjoy the twilight, moonlight, and starlight.
The lower level is meticulously clean and tidy with abundant space for storage and a laundry area with a convenient utility sink. A private basement room works well as a home gym, home office, or playroom; hardwired for Internet/LAN access. Find your favorite corner of the home for wherever the rhythm of the day finds you; from an early morning workout in the gym room, to late-night reading in front of the pellet stove on a cold winter’s night, to a few snacks at the bar watching your favorite team play. The entire home has been thoughtfully designed with high end finishes including Marvin Windows, Velux skylights, Jeld Wen doors, Italian porcelain tile, Mirabelle bath fixtures, a Harmon pellet stove, Lightolier down-lighting, and other high-quality products.
In the quiet hush of early mornings a five-minute stroll to the 100-acre pond along a wooded bike path will find you often alone to enjoy in solitude the multi-use recreational area; paddling, sailing, fishing and simply resting. The seasons are breathtaking with beautiful spring and fall colors; and waterfowl to mark the rhythmic migrations of geese, swans, ducks and occasionally osprey, bald eagle, red-tail hawk, and seagulls can be found. Capital Square is a short five-minute stroll to find great coffee and fresh baked goods, grab lunch from a number of restaurants, and to finish the day at a 100-year old charming theater with many first-run movies showing or at the popular Town Tavern taking in live music or your favorite sports team. Arlington Center is a short fifteen-minute walk to dozens of restaurant options with numerous ethnic cuisines available. Alewife Station is a short fifteen-minute walk where all of Boston awaits by bus or subway. Along the way are other recreational parks, including an enclosed dog park and a boardwalk wandering through a small nature preserve. Be a part of Arlington’s renowned public-school system with a short walk to Hardy ES. Welcome to Arlington!
