Property Description

LOCATION! On West Roxbury line. Character and charm abound in this 1895 colonial home with 4 levels of living. Soaring ceilings, original woodwork, plaster ceiling mouldings and pocket doors make this a home with "great bones" that could be a showplace with some cosmetic updates. (Watch: A&E's Flipping Boston for ideas on how to put your stamp on this turn-of-the-century gem.) The main level of the house boasts two working fireplaces, bow windows and gleaming hardwood floors. Walk up a beautiful staircase with carved-oak detail to the second floor, which has 1.5 baths and 3 bedrooms (hardwood floors in each.) Spacious walk-up attic includes a landed staircase, wide pine floors, tons of storage and streaming sunlight via multiple windows and southern exposure (would make a lovely master retreat or artist's studio!) A full in-law apartment/home office on the lower level (above grade) has its own private entrance, full bath, kitchenette and utilities– plus two points of egress. (Think: income opportunity.) Wraparound porch, fenced-in yard with mature plantings and off-street parking for 3 cars make this a wonderful home for all seasons. Just a 2 minute walk to T/Bellevue commuter rail. Stroll down the sidewalks of vibrant Centre St. to the local Starbucks, Roche Brothers, Zagat-rated restaurants, shops, new YMCA, library and more. This home/lot has plenty of room and great potential for expansion, or conversion to professional office suites or condos. Return on investment: house is literally steps away from a building that rents for 2K+ per unit! All serious offers will be considered. Investor interest. 


-Walking distance to Starbucks, Arnold Arboretum & eclectic eateries -10 minute drive from world-class medical care, including Children's and Brigham & Women's -short walk to both Roslindale Square and West Roxbury Center -excellent childcare options nearby; well regarded nursery and grade schools -Library, YMCA, yoga studios and parks all within walking distance -residential eligibility for prestigious Boston Latin School (PUBLIC exam school for grades 6 – 12) -Roche Brothers and great take out options are very close–AND both will deliver to your door! -Wonderful neighbors
