Upkeep on historic homes can be an incredible challenge. This Boston-Edison home, listed for $699,000, makes it look effortless.

The well-maintained 5,320-square-foot Colonial, built in 1925, comes with some Tudor features. The brick exterior has a stone section at the entrance with leaded-glass windows and some lovely landscaping. The rear of the house is just as pretty—there’s a long deck that wraps around a koi pond and leads to a stone-walled pergola.

As impressive as the home is on the outside, the six-bedroom interior is equally so.

The Pewabic-tiled vestibule leads into the living and dining rooms, which have nice crown molding. The reading room, with its built-in shelves and wood-paneled walls, is perfect. The sunroom is a great companion to the well-designed backyard. And you can find even more Pewabic tiles in the colorful bathrooms.

The kitchen has also been recently updated and now has stainless steel appliances, plus granite countertops and backsplash.

But we were truly surprised to find that the basement had been transformed into an entertainment center, complete with a wet bar, arcade game, and home theater with two rows of stadium seating.

Like what you see? 725 W. Boston Boulevard is listed with Dylan Tent of Sotheby’s International Realty for $699,000.
