Outdoor lovers will appreciate the Liberty Heights conservation trail only steps away, the bike path, or exploring the nature trails within Arlington’s Great Meadows. Enjoy a short stroll for bagels and coffee on a Saturday morning or indulge in the variety of cuisines nearby for lunch and dinner.

The oversized farmer’s porch is welcoming with its beadboard ceiling and Dutch door to enjoy on summer days. The home’s warmth and character radiate the moment you step inside the front entry as shining hardwood floors and endless natural light flow throughout the thoughtfully designed living spaces. A 2003 renovation doubled the size of the original home with a three-level addition creating the spacious open concept kitchen, the master suite, and the lower level recreation room.

Newly refinished floors flow throughout the main level, making a lovely first impression as the stunning, open concept kitchen begins to unfold. The chef’s culinary skills are guaranteed to shine with high end stainless-steel appliances including the Viking six-burner gas range, granite counters, a breakfast bar island, stylish antique-white cabinetry, a farmer’s sink, gleaming hardwood floors, a large walk-in pantry with built-in shelving, and recessed lighting.

The kitchen transitions seamlessly to a spacious dining area with a wall of windows overlooking the peaceful landscape beyond.

Double French doors connect with the secluded patio surrounded by beautifully crafted stone walls and pretty gardens. Summer days will be spent on the front porch watching the world pass by or enjoying fun barbecues in the backyard with family and friends.

The inviting formal living room is designed for comfortable living with hardwood floors, a sunny double window, and a wood-burning fireplace accented by a stylish white mantel and brick surround. This light-filled room has a cheerful vibe, perfect for hanging out with the family or cozying up around the fireplace on chilly nights.

The living room transitions to a delightful office alcove, with walls of windows and a charming tin ceiling, offering a private space for working remotely. Double French doors open to the formal dining room where many special meals will be shared. A half bathroom with a granite-topped vanity completes the first level.

A centrally located staircase leads to the second level with the master suite, two family bedrooms, and a family bathroom. The charming master suite feels like a tree house retreat with a vaulted beadboard ceiling, a cozy window seat, a walk-in closet, shining hardwood floors, and double French doors to a private balcony overlooking the backyard. The updated master bathroom has a modern feel with a granite-topped dual sink vanity and a tiled double shower.

Two more family bedrooms are bright and cheerful with hardwood floors. A 2017 renovation created the delightful family bathroom with thoughtfully selected finishes including a beautifully tiled Jacuzzi tub, a stylish white vanity, built-in shelving, and heated floors.

This truly special home offers the perfect blend of private spaces when rest or quiet times are needed and large, inviting areas to gather for quality time. The lower level unfolds with a carpeted family room and a bonus recreation room. The family room is a comfortable, casual space perfect for movie night or to simply unwind at the end of a long day. Rainy days will never be dull with the large recreation room offering endless possibilities as an exercise space, enjoying fun ping pong tournaments, or to use as desired. The lower level also provides abundant additional storage.

This is the one you have been waiting for, a truly special home perfectly situated in the desirable Liberty Heights neighborhood and ready for you to move right in. The location is a dream for commuters with easy access to public transportation and highway routes. Welcome home to the highly desirable community of Lexington known for its excellent public schools, rich history, open conservation land and parks, and dynamic community life.
