The location is a dream for commuters only a short stroll to bus routes, a mile from the commuter rail station in Waverley Square, and with easy access to Routes 2 and 90. The home’s original charm and character radiates from its beautiful gumwood moldings and gleaming, refinished oak hardwood floors throughout. Its lovely curb appeal, accented by granite steps, a front entry framed by sidelights, and a row of evergreens for added privacy, makes a wonderful first impression.

The entry foyer welcomes you inside the freshly painted interior as the spacious, front-to-back formal living room opens with shining hardwood floors, gumwood trims, a coffered ceiling, crown molding, and double windows for lots of natural light. A wood burning fireplace creates a cozy atmosphere for chilly nights and provides a visual centerpiece with its wood mantel and brick surround.

Double French doors open to the adjoining sunroom, full of natural light and perfect to use as a sitting room, private office, or as desired with hardwood floors, crown molding, and built-in shelving. Walls of windows welcome the sunshine and offer sweep-around views of the surrounding landscape.

Share special meals in the elegant formal dining room with hardwood floors, wainscoting, crown molding, a large triple window, and a chandelier to add the finishing touch.

The sunny and cheerful kitchen was updated in 2014 adding a new stove, vent hood, stainless steel dishwasher, countertop, wall tiles, and more. A butler’s pantry provides additional space and storage. All you need are a few of your own ideas to create the kitchen you have been dreaming of. A large double window welcomes the sunshine and offers delightful views of the peaceful backyard beyond. A convenient half bathroom located just off the kitchen completes the first level.

The level backyard has so much to offer with grape vines, flowering cherry trees, raspberry bushes, hearty strawberry plants, a garden area, garden shed, and patio areas. Dine al fresco or spend summer days relaxing and entertaining surrounded by the sights and sounds of nature.

The second level continues with the spacious master bedroom, two more family bedrooms, an office, and a family bathroom. Sunlight streams though the windows in the front-to-back master bedroom with hardwood floors and two closets. Step out onto the private balcony to soak up the sunshine and relax amongst the treetops with distant views of the surrounding neighborhood. What a wonderful place to begin your day or unwind in the evening beneath the stars.

The family bedrooms are full of natural light with shining hardwood floors throughout. The family bathroom, refurbished in 2008, is tastefully done in neutral tones with a white vanity and a tub with a shower. A single French door opens to a private office perfect for working comfortably from home.

Retreat to the third level with two more bedrooms and a full bathroom. The first of two generously sized bedrooms features skylights and carpeting. Another bedroom has a skylight and a delightful adjoining area perfect for curling up with a good book or as a fun play space for the kids. The third level bathroom was added in 2016 and has a modern feel with ceramic wall and floor tiles and a tub with a shower.

This thoughtfully designed home offers the perfect blend of private spaces when rest or quiet times are needed, in addition to the inviting areas to gather for special family moments. The walkout lower level has more finished space and has versatility to use as desired with an additional bedroom and a family room. The family room is currently used as an art studio and has large windows and radiant heat flooring. Both rooms are truly special with glass sliders offering their own private connection to the backyard. Another full bathroom has an oversized vanity and a tub with shower. The lower level also offers abundant storage with a wall of closets to keep you organized.

Move right in and begin creating new family memories in this meticulous home beaming with pride of ownership. The area offers superior walkability and everything you need is close by including CVS, grocery shopping at Star Market only a mile away, many specialty shops and dining options, and a new retail development in Cushing Square including Starbucks and much more. Belmont offers the perfect blend of bustling commercial centers and sprawling green conservation lands for outdoor recreational enjoyment including Pequossette Park, with a recently renovated playground, tennis courts, a soccer field, and a trail for walking or biking. The beautiful Beaver Brook Reservation is just down the road with a playground and a spray deck for summertime fun. The walking and hiking trails throughout the reservation offer a peaceful place to stroll amongst the tree-lined green space or enjoy a picnic by the brook. What a perfect place to call home.
