Listing #72131186
Character and a sense of permanence, hallmarks of Second Empire architecture, distinguish this mansard-roofed home today just as they did when it was built in 1872. An extensive 1982 renovation retained key period details while opening up the floor plan for a more informal contemporary feel. Located on a lovely side street in Porter Square, this perfectly proportioned single-family features high ceilings, deep windows, and excellent flow. The 1st floor offers an interconnected kitchen, dining room and living room, plus a separate den with half bath that could serve as a 1st floor bedroom suite. Upstairs, the master suite has its own dressing room and bathroom, and the other two bedrooms share a full bath. The large partially finished basement contains a laundry room, workshop and additional living or storage spaces. There is parking for 3 cars (one in a covered carport), a front and a side yard, and easy access to nearby shops, restaurants & public transportation.Walk Score 94
