Belmont Home of the Week: 27 Sherman St.

Beautiful Winn Brook area colonial was impeccably maintained by its current, long-time owners.

This lovely three bedroom colonial couldn't have a more convenient Belmont address. Located in the pristine Winn Brook area, it is also conveniently situated near fruitful Belmont Center, the commuter rail station, the Harvard bus, Winn Brook School and Rte. 2. What makes this property even more appealing, however, is its condition. Inside and out, this home has been impeccably and proudly maintained by its long-time owners who are now ready to offer their residence to the next fortunate title-holder.

In addition to the preservation of its period details, many structural and aesthetic amenities have been recently applied, including a new roof, gas boiler and upgraded electrical system and a renovated kitchen and baths. The classical exterior front entry is a wonderful and fitting invitation into the home which welcomes guests immediately into a charming 22 x 13 square foot fireplaced living room. A quaint 13 x 12 square foot dining area provides the perfect setting for intimate gatherings and an 11 x 7 square foot den with a bay window offers a casual and cozy personal space. The 15 x 10 square foot eat-in kitchen is as hospitable as one would expect within this home with wood cabinets, gleaming white appliances and lots of counter space.

The second level includes three very generously-sized bedrooms with an 17 x 11 square foot master with a walk-in closet, a 14 x 11 square foot bedroom with a walk-in closet, an 11 x 10 square foot third bedroom and a full family bath. The finished basement, not included in the listed square footage, expands the living space in this home with an expansive 21 x 11 square foot fireplaced family room.

Purchasing a home from prolonged owners has definite advantages for the next tenants. Those residents have likely had a deep personal interest in the preservation and care of the property and a pride in their lengthened possession. The ideal route in a home purchase should be from someone who has witnessed the property and neighborhood grow, mature and advance through the years and has graciously sustained the residence through all its modernizations and changes.
