Belmont Home of the Week: 306 Pleasant St.
This handsome colonial preserves Belmont's rich residential past but extensive renovations provide many contemporary conveniences.
The curbside presentation of this 95 year-old colonial continues to proudly boast its timeless architectural details. That exterior staging is the perfect introduction to its interior accommodations that is filled with classic period details, layers of warm wood and charming crown moldings. This vintage property stands above others on the Belmont real estate market today, however, with the applications of its expert renovations that merged its rich history with today's modern conveniences and designs.
The welcoming farmer's porch guides residents and guests into the first level of this home that contains an eclectic floor plan with open, fluid spaces and intimate room options. The large, exposed kitchen will comfortable host a range of activities from mealtime to a homework studio to seamless entertaining. This gourmet culinary center has been fully equipped with premier ingredients including upgraded cabinetry, granite surfaces, stainless steel appliances, hardwood flooring, recessed lighting and dual seating choices at the breakfast bar and casual dining area. The living and family rooms both offer the warmth and focal point of a fireplace, one with a highly traditional ornamental mantel and the other with a more modern twist encompassing floor-to-ceiling built-ins.
The second level hosts three generously-sized bedrooms, including a lovely master suite with a walk-in closet and full, private bath. The third story contains a priceless bonus hideaway space with a skylight that would make an ideal hobby room, home office or teenager retreat.
In addition to its spacious indoor blueprint, this property also provides a charming and resourceful 7,000 square foot plot that includes a raised deck, a large, private fenced-in yard, stone walls shielding lovely plantings and the lush lawn and a wrap-around driveway for convenient parking.
This impressive home not only represents Belmont's vintage residential past but also the commitment of its residents to preserving its history while still looking forward in enhancing personal comfort and incorporating present-day designs.
