Newton Home of the Week: 21 Barnstable Rd.
This classic New England colonial with only two weeks on the real estate market is located in one of Newton's most desirable areas.
The use of natural fibers, unique architectural details, built-ins and dormers are just glimpses of the attractive components that make up this beautiful colonial in West Newton Hill. Built in 1940, this home proudly boasts its rich historical narrative with classic lines and traditional enhancements and the meticulous maintenance by its current and previous owners have graciously preserved those period details for its future fortunate owners.
Make no mistake, however, this home is by no chance stuck in its past. Contemporary paint and wallpaper choices and modern accessories contribute to its eclectic charm and character. On the first floor, a spacious 24 x 15 square foot living room welcomes guests with its warming fireplace and wall of floor-to-ceiling bookshelves. The 15 x 13 dining area is an intimate space with its charming corner china cabinet and vivid mustard walls that envelop all who enter. The 18 x 10 square foot eat-in kitchen is a welcoming space fittingly representing the heart of the home. It has been accessorized with wood cabinets and granite surfaces and provides direct access to the attached two-car garage. A 12 x 11 square foot library presents an attractive wall with a built-in entertainment center and a bonus 13 x 11 square foot room completes the living options on this floor.
Traditional dormers provide interested dimensions to the bedrooms which include, a 24 x 15 square foot master suite, and three additional sleeping quarters at 13 x 13, 17 x 10 and 16 x 14 square feet. There is also an additional 8 x 10 square foot room on the second level that would make an ideal home office or study. For casual and relaxed moments, this home offers two very diverse options: an incredibly large 26 x 13 square foot paneled playroom in the basement and a charming screen-in porch that overlooks the private, fenced-in rear landscape.
This home is sited on a beautiful, lush third of an acre lot in one of Newton's premier neighborhoods. That feature in itself is reason enough to explore this new residential opportunity, but just wait until you get inside.
