Home of the Week: 9 Hosmer St., Unit 2
Reserve an hour this weekend to visit the first open house of this spacious four bedroom Watertown condominium.
Historic elegance. This beautiful two-family home, originally built in 1915, proudly flaunts its period roots curbside with its classic architectural details and welcoming farmer's porch with an overhead balcony. Prospective homebuyers would be correct in assuming those same traditional features are again revealed within its four walls, however, they will be delightfully surprised with its modern amenities and enhancements that were tastefully blended with its 2005 renovation. The merging of the two eras resulted in an eclectic residence that respects and preserves the home's original character yet provides many present day designs and conveniences.
This bi-level penthouse unit is comprised of the second and third floors and offers eight spacious rooms with elevated ceilings and hardwood floors within 1,560 square feet of living space. The main level includes a lovely 15 x 14 square foot living room with a fireplace set in floor-to-ceiling red brick and a warm 13 x 11 square foot dining area drenched in natural wood on the walls and the charming built-in china cabinet. The large 15 x 11 square foot updated kitchen offers modern materials and enhancements with premier neutral white cabinetry, granite surfaces and newer stainless steel appliances. This floor also provides two bedrooms at 11 x 10 and 11 x 11 square feet and a full bath for residents who prefer single-floor living, or either of these spaces would make an ideal den or home office.
The upper story hosts a private suite with two bedrooms and a full bath. The impressive 21 x 13 square foot master bedroom contains a cathedral ceiling and a deluxe skylit bath with a whirlpool tub, multi-jet shower and dual vanity and the fourth bedroom measures at 13 x 11 square feet.
Unlike many condominiums, this unit also encourages outdoor enjoyment with a roof deck and enclosed porch that overlooks the entire neighborhood. Commuters will also find this residence very appealing with parking available for three vehicles and its desirable East Watertown location that provides easy access to Boston, the Massachusetts Turnpike and Rte. 128.
Four short days. This property is one of the newest offerings on the Watertown real estate market. Be one of the fortunate few prospective homebuyers to view this great opportunity at the first open house this weekend. That small investment in time may result in an asset for a lifetime.
