Editor's note: The Home of the Week feature alternates between West Roxbury and Roslindale homes.
This lovely structure may have been built over 90 years ago, but with its extensive renovations this year, its new residents will feel as if they have just moved into a modern contemporary condominium. Every facet of this home has been refurbished to reflect today's modern styles and conveniences, but historical admirers will be pleased that a few vintage
features were thankfully preserved to reflect its vintage spirit.
This first-floor unit offers 900 square feet of living space, however, with its open layout, elevated ceilings and warm, neutral tones, the dimensions appear much larger. Residents of this condominium enter from their private entrance and can immediately relax within its spacious living/dining room that effortlessly spills into a designer kitchen. This new culinary center will delight any level cook with its espresso cabinets, granite
surfaces, stainless steel appliances, pantry with laundry facilities and a
breakfast bar enhanced with natural brick.
The two bedrooms also offer liberal measurements and plenty of closet space for its residents' comfort and convenience and the full bath has been tastefully decorated with a period vanity to reflect the home's original character.
This building only houses two units and both residences have access to a beautiful fenced-in rear backyard for recreation or relaxation. Parking is readily available on Orange St. which is conveniently located only minutes to Roche Bros. and local retailing and restaurants. A reasonable monthly fee by both units share water, sewer and master insurance expenses and with its new construction, basic repair costs should be minimal.
This property is an excellent opportunity for homebuyers looking to enter the real estate market. It is virtually a brand new home where maintenance expenditures are few and basic home responsibilities are
shared. This residence is appealing to both the bank account and the senses. The open house is today, 1-2 p.m. You won't want to miss it.
