Many of the homes in the historic Boston-Edison neighborhood were built about a hundred years ago, and often homes we see look like they’re either trapped in a different decade or renovated to remove all character. Not this one. Built in 1910 for the accountant for the S.S. Kresge Co., this home received a very modern remodel in 2015. It’s full of bold pops of color and so many different kinds of wallpaper. It’s now listing for $449,900.
First, a sampling of a few of the wallpaper choices around the home.
No butter yellow paint in sight! The house has four bedrooms, three full and two half baths, a nook of built-ins off the living room, and a light, airy kitchen. And have we mentioned that we love a good basement bar?
Also notice a finished third floor, owls in one of the bathrooms, a small yard out back, and the massive curb appeal.
After its 2015 remodel, it sold for $299,100. Have prices gone up that much since then? There might be a case for this one. It’s listed through Kyle Swink at Coldwell Banker Weir Manuel.
