Once inside this spacious two-level residence on Pine St., it may be difficult to remember that it is a condominium and not a single family home. This 1,900 square foot unit offers a versatile footprint with generous room dimensions, but residents will be gently reminded of its historic roots by its unique architectural nooks and period features.
Layers of natural wood are abundant throughout its floor plan, but especially on the main level. The 12 x 12 square foot dining area is lined with this vintage, quality material on the walls, floors and even beams in the ceiling. The 12 x 12 living room also displays the same detailed ceiling while the 21 x 19 square foot open, updated eat-in kitchen follows the organic foundation with gleaming hardwood floors, upgraded wood cabinets and granite surfaces. This level also includes two bedrooms at 10 x 10 and 10 x 12 square feet and a laundry center.
The recently renovated third floor offers a full, tiled bath and two additional bedrooms that include charming vignettes from the home's unique architecture. These rooms now boast cathedral ceilings with skylights, recessed lighting and liberal dimensions at 16 x 12 and 11 x 22 square feet.
The new fortunate title holders of this condominium will have assigned garage parking for one car and two off-street parking spaces. Two units comprise what is called Payson Park and a reasonable $162.50 monthly fee covers water expenses and master insurance. This structure is sited in a highly desirable location just steps to the Harvard bus line and bustling Cushing Square with a wide assortment of retailing and restaurant choices.
This building, originally built in 1915, still proudly flaunts its rich celebrated legacy, yet with its major renovations it also offers the conveniences and amenities prospective homebuyers look for in today's real estate market. This condominium has successfully blended both eras to provide a warm, inviting residence that softly reinforces the significance of preserving the past.
