Turn-of-the-century elegance bursts throughout this Queen Anne Victorian beautifully sited in a prime and private location. This nook of the Melrose Highlands has it all: gorgeous setting across from Sewall Woods while walkable to all the key spots. Do you dream of entertaining in high style? This is a home for every occasion. Enjoy the dignified porch for cocktails; the patio for summer BBQs; the stunning paneled dining room for candlelit dinners. Prepare your holiday extravaganzas in this chef’s kitchen. Work from home or get comfy with a good book in your octagonal sitting room. This home is beautifully sunlit, offering treeline views from nearly every window, and c. 1894 detail abounds: pocket doors, bays, three wood-burning fireplaces, built-in window seats, Palladian windows, claw foot tub, gorgeous moldings and gracious scale. Of other note: bonus potential “in-law” in the lower level with separate door, fabulous flat yard, low maintenance perennial gardens, 4-zone heating, plus fabulous storage.
You or your caterer with love this kitchen for functionality - double ovens (convection), granite, white cabinetry, two dishwashers, prep sink, and a fabulous dining island with 6 burner cooktop plus smart storage have been thoughtfully planned. We are so fortunate to be on the Quabbin reservoir for our high quality water, but your tea and coffee will benefit from the filter at the sink. Top of the line appliances ensure your cooking talent will deliver.
Sited on a half acre of land with a two-car garage, this home has smashing presence and a prime location with proximity to schools, commuter rail, library, conservation land and downtown restaurants and shops. Bike in the Fells, enjoy quality theater up the street in Stoneham, and set out on walks around the pond before you settle into one of our artisanal coffee shops or bakeries. The discriminating buyer looking to live in warmth and splendor in an A+ location won’t be disappointed.
