The allure of this home begins the moment one steps into an expansive living room - reminiscent of days gone. Original hardwood floors, natural wood wainscoting, high ceilings with crown moldings, an elegant chandelier hanging from a detailed medallion and two graceful columns are a few of the eye-catching features.

A cozy sitting area, shaped by the curve of a large and larger classic bay window, calls for one to sit a spell while enjoying some refreshments and discovering the seasonal landscapes of Wellington Street. A wood burning fireplace with an arched marble surround harkens a family on a cold winter’s eve.

The master suite, located behind a French door, is a lovely area to enjoy the ambiance of a bay window overlooking the private patio. Other highlights include natural hardwood flooring, a built-out closet and a second spacious closet with sliding doors.

A stylish blend of large gray marbled floor tiles, sleek white wall tiles and black accent tiles embrace the bow-shaped glass enclosed-shower, a Jacuzzi soaking tub and a white pedestal sink in the welcoming en suite bathroom.

The lower level has a delightful open floor plan - a perfect place for quiet interludes or fancy affairs with family and friends. A charming custom curio cabinet and a gorgeous stained glass window that adorns an unpainted brick wall abutting the guest bedroom are beautiful accents.

An open and welcoming dining area, accentuated by a whimsical candelabrum, gracefully flows into the kitchen.

The various shades of red and pink tones in the granite topped island/breakfast bar add an aesthetically pleasing contrast to the black granite-topped counters while complementing the ample wood cabinets and drawers. A quartet of stainless steel appliances adds sparkle.

Adjacent to the island is a flush gas fireplace and built-in cabinetry adding a charming and welcoming touch. A curved wall with tall twin windows - one stationary and one a door - open to a private outdoor patio for expanded entertaining. A cement stairway leads to a wooden gate that opens to a personal parking space.

A generous-sized bedroom, a spacious bonus room, an extra-large laundry room and a nicely sized bathroom that features a glass-enclosed shower with spa jets and steam complete the composition.

The home sits on a quiet dead end street away from the hustle and bustle of busy city life, yet is close enough to enjoy the myriad escapades in the South End and all the neighborhoods that surround it.
