This gracious 123 year-old Queen Anne Victorian proudly struts its architectural features curbside, but just wait until prospective homebuyers enter this magnificent home, that is where the true magic happens. Eight rooms and nearly 2,000 square feet of living space are filled with vintage details that narrate its rich heritage through original millwork, coffered, elevated ceilings, arched thresholds, pocket doors, hardwood floors and charming built-ins. Historical enthusiasts will flock to this exceptional historical opportunity, while serious purchasers will appreciate its timeless style.
Once guests finish admiring the charm of the wrap-around screen porch, they enter into a welcoming home that has shared its secure walls for generations. The main level consists of a lovely fireplaced living room with an intricate ceiling that flows effortlessly into an inviting formal living room with a corresponding ceiling and built-in china cabinet. The eat-in kitchen is a picture-perfect scene with cheerful white and butter yellow cabinets, granite surfaces, a bay window and rounded doorsill in the pantry.
The second level hosts three generously-sized bedrooms and a full family bath while the third story resourcefully utilizes the home's full footprint and offers two sky-lit bedrooms and a full bath with a Jacuzzi tub.
Residents will equally enjoy the comfort and enchantment of this home's outdoor features with its welcoming farmer's porch and private patio that overlook over a sweeping half acre of land. Its recent replacement of major utilities will highly appeal to the energy-conscious homeowner when they learn it has a newer roof, septic system, irrigation system, hot water heater and boiler.
This property has been advantageously occupied by trustworthy owners who recognize the value this home brings to Weston's rich residential history. It has been incredibly well maintained and cared for and deserves that same treatment by its new title holders. The home will repay the favor by providing many years of security and enjoyment.
