Waltham Home of the Week: 83 Hammond St.
This classic colonial offers the solid foundation of its era with timeless period details.
This traditional colonial in the desirable Highland neighborhood is a classic example of why many homebuyers search the Waltham real estate market. It offers a solid foundation and sturdy bones within a fundamental and welcoming floor plan that has fulfilled families needs for generations. Its vintage details, nearly impossible to imitate in today's new construction, also convey a sense of security and warmth to its residents before even one piece of furniture or personal belongings have entered the front door.
The first floor is comprised of three spacious, common rooms. The 12 x 12 square foot living room is a welcoming and comfortable setting with a built-in china cabinet and a bay of oversized windows drenching the room with natural sunlight while the 14 x 16 square foot formal dining area provides the most charming arena for holiday gatherings and entertaining. The 12 x 13 square foot eat-in kitchen is exactly what one would expect for this age and style home, an hospitable and inviting hub where families and friends will continually assemble. It is designed perfectly to unite guests and cooks during meal preparation and clean up with three separate sections of cabinet and counter space surrounding a lovely dining area. This floor also provides a surprising 10 x 11 square foot supplemental room that could be used as a den or children's play room.
The second level includes three good-sized bedrooms at 14 x 14, 12 x 13 and 8 x 13 square feet and a bonus 7 x 11 square foot home office.
This home may need some cosmetic assistance to evolve to today's design standards, but hopefully its new residents will recognize and appreciate the significance of its rich history and preserve its period character. Those initial timeless components are the essentials that make up a home, what comes next is completely up to its new residents.
