Property Description

Today's buyers will feel right at home in this stately Chestnut Hill single with over 5000 square feet of space, six fireplaces, a lovely half acre lot with loads of privacy and a detached carriage house and garage with an elevator to a finished 2nd floor. Originally built in the 1880s as a Victorian style house, the home was later rehabbed by noted architect Robert McGoodwin and transformed into a French Norman residence. The front entrance with its impressive columns, wide stone steps and welcoming red front door opens to an interior that is gracious and appealing. The first floor consists of a large reception hall, pretty LR with French doors, formal dining room, an expansive and comfortable year round sun room with endless windows, a lovely library with many built ins, a charming up to date country kitchen with open shelving, granite counters, center island and tile backsplash, breakfast room and butler's pantry with a slate floor used for entertaining. All of the main rooms have fireplaces. There is also a laundry area and two powder rooms on the first floor. There is a 3-room main bedroom suite plus bathroom on the 2nd floor with fireplaces in two of the rooms, two additional bedrooms and a large hall bathroom. The third floor offers four rooms, all freshly painted with brand new carpeting, and a bath. The home has been lovingly maintained with central air for the first and third floors, split units on the 2nd floor, updated electric, newer 3-zoned high efficiency furnace and many other upgrades. Refinished wood floors gleam, the closet space in the home is incredible and most rooms have been freshly painted. The detached carriage house with two car heated garage is a delight with an elevator to 2nd floor quarters -- perfect for an in-law, au pair or for use as an office. A long driveway curves from front to back offering additional off street parking. Trains and buses are close by and Chestnut Hill shopping is within walking distance. This is a truly wonderful property in move in condition at an affordable price. Come see.
