The nearly 4,800-square-foot home was expertly transformed and fully renovated four years ago from its original early 1900s heyday when it was part of The Burroughs Mansion and now houses the modern conveniences, style and detail one would expect from a home of this caliber and distinction.

With the convenience of a condominium and the privacy of a single dwelling, the carriage house located at 54R Burroughs St. in Jamaica Plain has the best of both worlds for the timely homeowners. While it is one of four units in the condominium association, this detached carriage house, listed by the Steve Cohen Team for $2,385,000, could easily pass for a single-family home.

The nearly 4,800-square-foot home was expertly transformed and fully renovated four years ago from its original early 1900s heyday when it was part of The Burroughs Mansion and now houses the modern conveniences, style and detail one would expect from a home of this caliber and distinction.

Stepping into the foyer, one immediately is struck by the grand and elegant open space with high ceilings, gleaming hardwood floors and fine custom finishes in the open living room, dining room and kitchen. For entertainment, this expansive space cannot be beat.

The dramatic living room and gracious formal dining room are separated by a striking two-sided gas fireplace. Multiple windows, including French doors that lead to a private patio, let natural light permeate both rooms.

The kitchen has gorgeous detail, including a stunning backsplash and granite counters. A large center island has seating for six people. Chefs will appreciate the four burner Thermador range with grill/griddle plus a Sub-Zero refrigerator.

Some of the well-planned features in the kitchen are a separate breakfast nook and built-in desk as well as a huge pantry with shelving and sliding drawers.

A separate wet bar with a mini-refrigerator, small sink and cabinets for glass and beverage storage reside beside the kitchen, accessible from the dining room and living room, convenient to serving guests when entertaining.

The mudroom – off the kitchen – has closets and a bench with underneath storage compartments and leads to a small private fenced yard that could hold a table and chairs, perfect for el fresco dining.

The flexible floor plan accommodates two additional rooms, serving as a cozy family room, library or bedroom. The 13x12-foot room has a sliding door with separate access to the front of the home, convenient for office use perhaps. These rooms all have access to a full marble bathroom with a shower as well as a half bathroom.

The upper level has a master bedroom suite. A suite in the true sense of the word, this space includes a 23x11-foot sleeping area. The enormous walk-in closet/dressing room has all the custom shelving and drawers one could want. A separate den/sitting area is available for reading, watching television or catching up on work. A bedroom doorway leads to a large balcony/terrace for exclusive evening refreshers, night stargazing and early morning interludes.

The en suite bathroom has a spa-like feel with a separate soaking tub, stall shower, his and her sinks, lots of storage and more.

Dazzling and impressive are the best words to describe the 20x12-foot fire-placed upper level family room. With good use of rooflines and style, the room boasts a unique eye-catching arched window,

Two more generously sized bedrooms as well as a dedicated laundry room and full bathroom round out this floor.

The basement has been designed for the fitness-minded family. Your gym has the amenities a commercial gym would have, including a padded floor, an extra-large cabinet for storing small weights or other hand held equipment, a mirrored wall to check your exercise form and a TV to pass the time while working out - all in the privacy of your own home. Just add the equipment that works best for you – no need to travel to a gym or use a common exercise room – your personal gym awaits.

This home is “really built out. It’s very, very top of the line,” said Marketing Director Bruce Withey of the Steven Cohen Team/Keller Williams.

This free-standing dwelling “feels like a private home even though it is part of an association,” Withey said.

The association fee covers snow removal, trash removal and landscaping so one is left with time to truly enjoy the home and grounds rather than being consumed with outdoor maintenance.

While parking can be tricky the closer one gets to Boston, this home comes with four parking spaces - perfect for all your family entertaining needs.

If the beauty, elegance and magnificent features of the home aren’t enough, the location makes it ideal for anyone wanting access to city living while holding on to a suburban feel.

The home is “one building in from Jamaica Pond, so it has privacy, yet convenience,” Withey said.

Nice weather will draw owners to the walking/jogging trails around Jamaica Pond just across the street while other parks and playgrounds, including Arnold Arboretum are a short walk away.

“This home is great for medical professionals; it’s 10 minutes from Longwood medical campus. You can walk to all the conveniences on Centre Street,” Withey said, including a post office, bank and plenty of fine restaurants offering a variety of fare such as Thai, Mexican, Italian, Lebanese and more.
