Arlington Home of the Week: 42 Kimball Rd.

Tradition at its best.

This lovely home on Kimball Rd. represents the classic constructive backbone of New England architecture. Built in 1928, it possesses a practicality in its design and construction and displays a traditional colonial silhouette that never goes out of style.

Its warm, welcoming yellow exterior and inviting enclosed porch immediately attract the eye of passers-by. If only they could view its interior. Its original structural frame of gumwood, eight and a half foot ceilings and powerful bones lay the well-made groundwork for this recently updated property that has also offers a newer heating system and windows.

The first floor provides three generously-sized rooms with a 16 x 11 square foot fireplaced living room, a 12 x 11 square foot dining room and a 12 x 11 square foot sparkling kitchen with fresh white cabinets and stainless steel appliances and hardware.

The upper level has three bedrooms, 13 x 11 square feet, 13 x 10 square feet and 11 x 9 square feet and a full bath, and each is decorated with attractive soft, contemporary hues.

This property also boasts .13 acre plot with finely manicured mature plantings to edge its front profile and a spacious, private, enclosed fenced-in back yard that inspire lots of outdoor possibilities.

This home is located in the charming Bishop School neighborhood and on a dead-end street with minimal street traffic and a quiet, country setting. While this home has received many updates, its character is what speaks to the potential homebuyer and will ultimately result in only a quick stay on the open real estate market. This is a property that has endured the many generational trends of construction and will continue to stand out on its own for years to come.
