This classic home on Leicester Rd. displays all the traditional features potential homebuyers would expect from a New England colonial, but make no mistake, this 82 year-old property is far from ordinary. It has been tastefully updated to adapt and reflect today's lifestyles and boasts a fabulous, open floor plan with generously-sized rooms and spaces. Although it has been beautifully enhanced, residents have been considerate of its period character and spirit which have been preserved and complimented to provide its new owners with an eclectic and well-working blend of both eras.
Soft, curved archways provide entry from the front foyer into the 21 x 13 square foot living room with a beamed ceiling and brick fireplace, an inviting neighboring 12 x 7 square foot four-season sunroom and the 15 x 12 square foot dining area that is accented with a custom china cabinet and wainscoting. The 18 x 11 square foot newer and fully equipped eat-in kitchen fulfills its duty as the heart of this home with welcoming and hospitable ingredients, including a snack bar on the center island and a charming casual dining space.
The second level hosts a 16 x 14 square foot master suite with a full, private bath and three more bedrooms with liberal dimensions at 15 x 12, 14 x 11 and 12 x 10 square feet. The basement offers a great, relaxed area for a family to unwind in the 18 x 17 square foot fireplaced family room and the attic, currently unfinished, provides more opportunity for a growing family with viable expansion potential.
A finely manicured fenced-in back yard and front landscape accent this timeless structure beautifully as it stands proudly in Belmont Hill, one of the most sought after neighborhoods in town. If potential homebuyers are searching for the perfect property that reflects Belmont's eloquent real estate market, they need not look any further.
