Waltham Home of the Week: 56 Piedmont Ave.
This "upside down" home stands alone when it comes to individuality and originality.
This home is nestled on top of a hill and its fabrication takes full advantage of its fantastic elevated landscape with a single downfall that only its top floor is revealed curbside. This property was creatively constructed as an "upside-down" home where residents and guests enter on the main floor, and instead of additional floors above, its spacious footprint was built with additional living space below.
The main level includes an incredibly generous front-to-back 24 x 14 square foot living/dining room, the epitome of the seamless floor plan. This space is the ideal entertaining arena which can easily be moved outdoors onto the mahogany deck that spans the width of the house and affords stunning two mile scenic views. The recently remodeled 13 x 12 square foot kitchen offers an abundance of granite counter space and cabinetry and can hold many personal and culinary accessories and also provides a handy desk/breakfast bar.
The three bedrooms on the above-grade lower level have also been granted liberal dimensions at 14 x 13, 13 x 12 and 11 x 10 square feet. This floor also includes a full, family bath and a convenient laundry room.
The walk-out basement offers a personal hobby/workshop and leads directly to a spectacular flourishing and professionally designed yet easily maintainable garden.
While its aesthetics have been beautifully supported and refreshed, prospective homebuyers will also appreciate this property's many significant upgrades, including a new roof and chimney liner, appliances, alarm system, central air conditioning and a dual-zone heating system.
The city of Waltham contains a great assortment of residential possibilities, but none that can compare to this distinctive home on Piedmont Ave. This property needs to be personally viewed to truly appreciate its individuality and once the tour is complete, its future owners will completely understand why this was chosen for the Waltham Home of the Week. There is an open house this afternoon; discover your next home that family and friends will repeatedly admire.
