No need for nature lovers to flee north, this is a fantastic opportunity to reside in the city, experience an easy commute and live in a home with both wooded and water views. This Waltham property is located just minutes from the Mass. Pike and Route 128/95, but provides the most private and picturesque landscape and pond scenes in the immediate area. Also, the culture, recreation and activity of Waltham, its surrounding towns and Boston are near enough to easily enjoy yet far enough to experience the tranquility of a personal retreat every day.
This raised ranch has noticeably received loving care and maintenance throughout almost four decades. Just recently, the current owner installed custom kitchen cabinetry and new carpeting was installed to protect its hardwood floors. But that's just the beginning. This home offers all the warm, comforting qualities and features homebuyers desire when looking to plant roots and nurture a family.
The main level provides a welcoming 25 x 13 sq. ft. fireplaced living room and a lovely neighboring formal dining area with a slider that drenches the spaces with natural sunlight and provides access to the rear deck and landscape. The eat-in kitchen shines as the heart of this home with an abundance of new wood cabinets and plenty of counter space. Three bedrooms are also conveniently available for single-floor living at 14 x 10, 11 x 9 and 10 x 9 sq. ft. as well as a full bath.
The above-ground basement provides an incredibly spacious 20 x 12 sq. ft. bedroom, a half bath and an impressive 20 x 12 sq. ft. wood paneled family room with a floor-to-ceiling fireplace.
The quarter of an acre grounds have been meticulously preserved with mature trees and evergreens and this private landscape and water views are the focal point and year-round serenity supplied by this property. As for that temperamental New England weather? There are plenty of areas to snuggle with comfort until spring arrives...and by the way, the views never take a winter vacation.
