Perfectly appointed Melville Park Victorian with three-season porch and secluded yard
Picture this summer: opening the vintage windows of the south-facing, three-season porch that spans the width of this American Foursquare home. Just past the “morning room” off the foyer and through French doors, a refined mantle and gas fireplace greet you in a living room framed by pretty geometric window grilles. Into the octagonal dining room, picture rails and period sconces adorn the bright space. A swinging door leads to an updated kitchen that showcases thoughtful carpentry: a center island and soapstone counters, ceiling-height cabinetry, ample drawer storage, and a wine fridge with bar prep space.
Past the mudroom with built-in bench, and stylish half bath, descend into the secluded yard with its landscaped gardens and a stone patio. On the second level, find four corner bedrooms—one that opens onto a balcony—a full bathroom, and laundry room. On the top level, a primary suite with a walk-in closet, large double-vanity shower room, and separate water closet. Throughout the home, weight and chain windows. The unfinished basement includes an eight-person cedar sauna. Parking available in the garage or in the driveway.
Facing the Centervale Park meridian, between Fields Corner and Shawmut T stations on the Red Line. At the corner, the Doherty-Gibson Playground—a five-acre park. Blocks to Target and Fields Corner shops and restaurants, including Coco Leaf, Blarney Stone, and home.stead bakery & cafe. Quick access to I-93.
