This 93 year-old Watertown Victorian presents such a great amount of character and spirit it appears to speak to prospective homebuyers though its vintage details. Long-term Watertown residents may already be very familiar with the home's history as it was the residence and office of Dr. Louis Mastrangelo, a beloved general practitioner, Board of Health member and town physician. After Dr. Mastrangelo's passing, the home stayed in the family through his daughter-in-law who resourcefully restored this local gem into its current state preserving and repurposing original materials wherever possible and perfectly enhancing its period accents while protecting its historical integrity.
Layers of natural fibers and intricate details reveal architectural tributes to its rich past with two fireplaces displaying the original Chelsea tile and egg-and-dart mantelpieces, quarter-sawn oak paneling, pocket doors, wainscoting and numerous window seats. On the practical side, this property also provides many benefits with updated systems, a newer kitchen and a three-year young roof.
This eclectic home flaunts incredibly spacious dimensions with 2,735 square feet of living space distributed throughout 12 rooms and three levels of living space. The first floor offers a 12 x 15 square foot living room, a 13 x 14 square foot dining area, a remodeled 12 x 19 square foot kitchen and a traditional 13 x 18 square foot fireplaced reception hall. The second level hosts both lodging and leisure spaces with a 12 x 13 square foot master bedroom, two bedrooms at 11 x 15 and 12 x 13 square feet, a full family bath, a 13 x 10 square foot study and an inviting 18 x 14 square foot sitting room. The third story could be used as a private suite for in-laws, au-pairs or guests or to stretch internal family accommodations with two bedrooms at 15 x 10 and 10 x 13 square feet, a full bath and a bonus room.
The future owners of this beautiful Victorian will not only transition into a beautiful, quality residence, they will discover they have the unique experience to assist in preserving a slice of Watertown's rich home and communal history. It is waiting and able for another family to move in and immediately create more treasured memories for another eventful century.
