Newton Home of the Week: 68 Davis Ave.
This traditional Garrison colonial offers both location and sophisticated comfort to its future owners.
This lovely Garrison colonial offers one of the best and most convenient locations in Newton. It is situated within walking distance to West Newton Square shops, restaurants, the movie theatre and public transportation and only minutes to major routes into Boston and Rte. 128. Its usefulness, however, does not end there. This 82 year-old home has been resourcefully renovated to offer a bedroom and bath in the attached garage which not only boosts its living space but also provides alternative sleeping solutions for guests, in-laws, teenagers or residents who prefer single-floor living.
Curbside, this home proudly stands as a classic, New England property which is a perfect introduction to its interior design and timeless character. The front entry opens into a welcoming and spacious 23 x 11 square foot living room with gleaming hardwood floors, a brick fireplace and a soft, neutral canvas and a French door leads into a warm, paneled den. The 19 x 13 square foot dining area offers a traditional setting for formal entertaining while the 15 x 10 square foot eat-in kitchen includes all the primary ingredients for a hospitable and comfortable family hub.
The second level hosts three generously-sized bedrooms that could also be modified to adapt to residents' evolving needs at 20 x 11, 19 x 12 and 12 x 9 square feet and two full baths. The 19 x 14 square foot master suite is privately located in the renovated garage and includes great closet space and a full bath. The finished basement further expands the living accommodations in this home with a large fireplace family room, the perfect background for relaxing on those cold winter evenings.
While this property needs some minor modern updates, the owners that have lovingly cared for this residence have done some valuable constructive maintenance with a new roof two years ago and new gutters this summer.
This favorable piece of Newton real estate is a fabulous prospect for homebuyers who place a high priority on location and comfort. Its future owners will likely experience the same level of contentment as its current residents and will enjoy its warm ambiance for decades.
