Arlington Home of the Week: 201 Pleasant St.

This vintage colonial offers both generous dimensions and a charming collection of period accents.

The space design and architectural details within this 87 year-old stately colonial are features only prevalent in a home of its artistic era. Each room within this generous 3,000 square foot home has been given liberal dimensions, but also creative blueprints to add just the right touch of interest to each space. Built-ins can also be found in typical, and sometimes atypical areas, again demonstrating the resourcefulness of the constructive period. Lastly, the home just radiates charm, another characteristic that is difficult to fabricate in today's contemporary styles.

The living and dining areas on the first level provide elegant entertaining settings with their rich gold walls, chair rail, grand built-in floor-to-ceiling china cabinet in the dining area and a columned threshold as a soft divider between the two rooms. The family room makes a dramatic statement with its original shape and plush cranberry walls and a brick fireplace grounds the space as the focal point of the room. The eat-in kitchen is spot on as the heart of the house with warm, upgraded wood cabinets taking center stage and an abundance of surfaces and accessories assist any level cook.

Five generously-sized bedrooms and two full baths are conveniently spread throughout the second and third levels, again effectively utilizing the full footprint of the house and providing privacy and enhanced levels of comfort to its residents. A laundry area and full bath in the basement complete the available living accommodations of this practical home.

Seasonal views of scenic Spy Pond and a lovely sunroom overlooking the tiered, private landscape promote stunning ecological pictures from this property, but its handy location near the Alewife T Station, major highways, restaurants and retailing provide the convenience of city living and commuting. An open house is offered this afternoon for a personal tour, which is highly recommended so potential homebuyers can personally absorb its special and unique attributes.
