There are many appealing features to this lovely three bedroom colonial currently on the open Arlington real estate market, the first being location. The home is conveniently sited in the desirable Brackett neighborhood abutting Robbins Farms with picturesque views from the oversized deck and upper level bedrooms. It has also received many recent structural updates, such as a new roof, siding and windows and electrical and central air conditioning systems.
This 86 year-old colonial flaunts many charming vintage details with a farmer's porch, built-in china cabinet, high ceilings and hardwood floors throughout both floors. While some personal touches and just a little love will go a long way for this affordable property, its potential is endless and a very appealing prospect to call home.
The first floor is comprised of three common spaces with a living room, dining room and spacious eat-in kitchen with an adjacent handy mudroom that leads to the rear deck. Each space throughout this level and the entire home practically provides a solid building block for new owners with built-ins, spacious rooms designs and natural wood, leaving only aesthetic preferences to personalize its interior design.
The second level offers a master bedroom, two additional family bedrooms and a full bath. Again, many period characteristics have been preserved on this floor as well with built-in shelving, an inviting window seat, dual bathroom sinks and natural hardwood on the floors and some walls.
A large, oversized deck delivers comfortable outdoor living options while also providing magnificent views of the wooded landscape and green pastures that stretch as far as the eye can see.
This home has endless possibilities and waits for just the right owners to move in and boost its living potential further. There is expansion potential for a half bath on the first floor and with its recent $10,000 price drop, the economical advantages become even more appealing.
