Description

A drive past this house gives absolutely nothing away. Set well back from the road on a deep lot, you may sense the privacy, but the only way to realize its true charm, generous size and natural setting is to explore the grounds and make your way through all three levels of the interior. The biggest surprise of all is surely the crystal blue pool situated in a sunny clearing past brick walkways, enchanting gardens and a shady stone patio. Out here, encircled by tall trees, it+GGs easy to forget that downtown is a mere stroll away. The Battlefield and Marquand Park are even closer! Inside, rooms are large, yet clearly defined, imparting a warm traditional elegance that can be elusive these days. The eat-in kitchen is especially roomy and rich in storage. The living room is bookended by big windows with a fireplace in the middle. The dining room gives way to a delightful screened porch with an always-cool-underfoot stone floor. Four bedrooms, one ideal as an office with floor-to-ceiling built-ins, share 2 full baths. While this layout presents an opportunity for easy, single-level living, there is still tons of space in the full basement with a powder room, yard access and a second fireplace, as well as upstairs in two bonus rooms, one with a sweet little window seat overlooking the yard.Property is deeded at 271 Mercer Road.
