Property Description

Welcome to this charming, four-bedroom house built in 1920 and full of character and curb appeal! You'll love the original slate shingle siding, brick exterior and quaint, covered front porch. This three-story gingerbread house has been lovingly maintained for over 40 years by the current owner and is ready for a new family to make it their own. The cozy living room is at the front of the house and offers an amazing floor to ceiling front window. The dining room features a handsome, original corner cupboard, perfect for showing off your favorite pieces. The kitchen has white cabinetry and a very large window by the sink with views capturing the beautiful backyard. You can't miss the gorgeous curved staircase with wrought iron railing which leads to the second floor where three bedrooms are located. The primary bedroom has enchanting French doors and a laundry chute to the basement. The ceramic tile hall bath and two additional bedrooms complete the floor. Head up another flight of stairs to the fourth bedroom and additional storage space. Just off the kitchen is a screened porch - the perfect spot to enjoy your morning coffee, read a book, or relax and take in the views. There is a shared driveway and detached, 1-car garage, which is currently used as a shed with two separate storage areas. The basement is partially finished and has a laundry closet with washer, dryer, utility sink and working toilet - there is also a separate workshop with work bench and storage. This home boasts new central air conditioning in 2018, a new water heater in 2019 and replacement windows. Enjoy all the history, arts and fun that Lansdowne has to offer, including the library, farmers market, symphony, restaurants and more! Or catch the train from the convenient Lansdowne station for a short ride into the city. Don't miss the opportunity to own this special, one-of-a-kind home on a wonderful block!
