A bunch of Boston-Edison homes have gone on the market of late. Today we bring you a slightly more modest one with a modern renovation.
This home, built in 1913, is a kind of melding of classic architectural home styles—part American colonial (flat facade), part Italian Renaissance (arched first-floor windows), but breaking conventions of both (no columns, off-center front door).
The 3,200-square-foot, four-bedroom home was last bought in 2018 and renovations finished this year. From the color choices to the furnishings, the home was updated to make it comfortable and understated.
There’s attractive tiles everywhere. The hardwood floors have a walnut hue that accents the tiles and molding around the fireplace. Downstairs, there’s a Florida room with inviting floral tiles. The kitchen has a subway tile backsplash and modern appliances incorporated into the granite countertops.
The master bathroom was completely redone as well. It now has modern tub, walk-in glass shower (again with some nice tile accents), and marble floor and walls.
There’s also a new central HVAC, new plumbing, and a rebuilt two-car garage.
709 Chicago Boulevard is listed through Sotheby’s International Realty for $469,900.
