Thoughtful and superb renovation of this charming Farmhouse Colonial makes this a sweet opportunity as this home has been updated from soup to nuts!  Sited in Melrose's Hoover-Ripley neck of the woods, this home is privately set and offers tree-line views from both levels.  The kitchen boasts cabinets galore in a pretty maple finish (Schrok) including a rolling spice rack, deep pantry storage and soft close drawers, as well as granite countertops, stainless appliances, under-cabinet, pendant and recessed lighting, plus glass subway tile.  Ample breakfast space and a family communication center, in addition to a convenient mud-room entry from the farmer's style porch.  The living room and dining room open to each other, both rooms feature built-ins and pretty period moldings.  The sunporch entry has been converted into the family room and is bathed in beautiful natural light through the ribbon of windows.  Outstanding first floor storage has been created, but can also be found in the nooks and crannies that remain true to this home's turn-of-the-century origins.  The second floor hosts three well-sized bedrooms, all with ceiling fans and natural viewpoints offering lovely light and a breeze.  The full bath includes an enviable laundry center with ample room for storage, plus a vintage style sink and subway tile.  The owners have taken stewardship to the next level - 2009: roof, heat, A/C, electrical, exterior Hardie Plank, windows and insulation; 2011 - kitchen, full bath, half bath and mudroom, leaving almost no pebble unturned.  The yard has a flatter fenced area plus terraced inclines creating a topography for play and garden if you'd like.  Garage.  Lovely setting and neighborhood, convenient to Oak Grove and the Hoover and Melrose’s charming downtown, plus outstanding updates make this a score.
