Update: We’ve heard from a tipster that exterior renovations do not conform to Historic District Commission guidelines and there could be complications because of that.
Indian Village is known for its grand mansions built in the early 1900s. But before the neighborhood was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1972, some not-so-grand homes were built (you’ll find similar homes in Boston-Edison). This 1966 home on Burns looks like it would belong in any subdivision; but inside, it’s been redone for a modern buyer. It also sits on a double lot. This “modest” Indian Village home, at 2,200 square feet, is listed for $449,900.
The interior is gorgeous, with dark wood beams, an open staircase, a new kitchen, and a fireplace in the living room. The house also boasts a rarity—an enclosed pool. The home is one and a half stories, with four bedrooms, three full and two half baths, plus a basement (with an unfortunate drop ceiling). It’s cool to finally see inside one of these homes, and could be a good option for someone not wanting to deal with a huge mansion, but also wanting to live in the historic neighborhood. And hey, attached garage! It’s listed through Hawkins Realty Group.
