Sotheby's International Realty - Boston, MA

Located in a pastoral setting within the heart of Melville Park this picturesque enclave of twenty eight Painted Ladies encircling one of the few gaslight parks left in Boston is reminiscent of a simpler time. Maintained by the city, the park is a gathering place for neighbors and their children. The inviting front porch of number thirty seven leads to a gracious stair hall with a generous open living/dining space and corner fireplace. The kitchen and half bath are renovated with an eclectic vibe. The second floor has three bedrooms, a nursery/office and new full bath. The sunny front room is currently used as a library and the spacious master bedroom has two closets (one is a walk-in). Three additional bedrooms comprise the top floor. A custom built trellised gated entry leads you down a brick pathway through an enchanting perennial secret garden with mature plantings to the private back yard with patio and outdoor shower. Three blocks to the Shawmut T Red Line. Easy highway access.
