The current owner, an architect, fell in love with and purchased this charming home in 2020 with the intention to update it before moving in. Plans changed and a rare opportunity is now available to the next individual or family who will cherish this beloved home in the same way as the current owner. Most of the work has already been completed, but a few items are left for the new owners. The bathroom is one of the most urgent pieces of the project remaining to make the home ‘move-in ready’ and is currently left as a blank canvas for you to bring your design ideas to life.
The sunroom makes a lovely first impression, overlooking a beautiful pollinator garden bursting with lovely perennial plantings, raised beds, and butterflies.
Step inside the front entry and you will feel right at home as the open concept living areas unfold with hardwood floors and a casual, comfortable vibe perfect for hanging out with the family or entertaining.
There is some finish work to be done on the main level, but soon you will be enjoying special occasions with family and friends in the formal dining room with chair rail and a built-in corner china cabinet.
The chef is sure to appreciate the updated and generously sized kitchen featuring a brand-new stainless-steel LG refrigerator, granite countertops, hardwood floors, and abundant cabinetry for all your culinary supplies. An optional set of laundry hookups are also available in the basement.
An exterior door from the kitchen offers easy access to the side entry and tree-lined backyard with a patio.
Retreat to the second level with the inviting primary bedroom and two more generous family bedrooms. Each bedroom is full of natural light with hardwood flooring, newly installed light fixtures, and ample closets. The full bathroom is already plumbed but has been completely gutted and will need a full installation. The unfinished, walkout basement is clean and tidy offering abundant storage space, additional laundry hookups, and has its own mini split unit installed for heating, cooling, and dehumidifying. The unfinished attic offers more storage and future expansion potential.
Move right in and begin creating new memories in a popular neighborhood close to everything that you need. Meet up with other families at the Pierce School playground, Summer Street Park, or McClennan Park. Commuting is a dream with a short stroll to the bus stop and the Minuteman Bike Path. Many shopping and dining options are only a short walk or drive away including Trader Joes, Starbucks, The Heights Pub, and much more. Reservoir Beach offers swimming in the summer, scenic walking trails, and a newly renovated playground. The nearby Ed Burns Arena offers ice skating and many other recreational activities.
