Editor's Note: The Newton Patch "Home of the Week" has shifted to featuring Newton homes on alternating weeks. On the off-weeks, we will feature homes in Waltham.
Who needs new construction? This new residents of this stellar 63 year-old Waltham colonial will benefit from the luxurious accommodations found in newer homes but within a residence that displays a character only contained within a property with solid bones and a maturing spirit. The combination of its age and exceptional updates offer very valuable advantageous benefits to its future owners where experienced residents have tailored its transformation to a comfortable and adaptable familial lifestyle that enhances the home's original structure. That familiarity differs from walking into new construction where certain areas were developed and others that were working were left unaided. The successful result? A residential audition that produced a beautiful product to fulfill the desires and needs of an evolving family.
This home's classic history is proudly flaunted with its traditional exterior introduction and the welcoming 18 x 12 square foot fireplaced living room that warmly greets guests as they enter. An oversized threshold provides seamless access to the neighboring 18 x 14 square foot gourmet kitchen that was recreated into the showcase and hub of this home. This fabulous culinary center is fully equipped with high end stainless steel appliances, a radiant heated floor, dual sinks, premier cabinetry and granite surfaces, including a bi-level center island bar. The kitchen also flows effortlessly into an 18 x 14 square foot dining area with a French door that leads to an oversized deck for festive meals al fresco. For relaxed occasions, this floor also includes a charming 20 x 10 square foot den, a new designer tiled bath and laundry center.

Prospective homebuyers will not be disappointed.
