This lovely NE Colonial hosts one of the best yard settings around! The wide cobblestone front porch, an inviting spot to enjoy a pre-supper libation, overlooks the expansive front yard that has hosted endless hours of entertainment, think "Melrose Porch-Fest". The first floor is graced by hardwood flooring, high ceilings and deep moldings all illuminated by generously sized windows, a hallmark of the design era. Offering a flexible floor plan, youll also find laundry and full bath on this level. Three bedrooms, two of which feature wide pine flooring, along with second full bath and a small walk in closet round off the second floor. Set up your workshop in this meticulous basement. Endless possibilities in this perfectly walkable locale. This well-loved home has been meticulously maintained, updated and upgraded: exterior paint, custom windows, central air, heat, insulation and full bath to name a few. Less than half mile to downtown shops, restaurants and commuter line.
