Historically significant, this endearing Moss Hill colonial sits on an oversized lot and entices with a white picket fence and arboretum-like yard. Built-in 1937 by Boston architect Fred MacDonald, this much-loved home has many notable features. Large mullioned windows let in lots of light and in winter, there’s a view of stunning sunrises over rooftops. Centerpieces of the living room are a wood-burning fireplace and interesting recesses in the woodwork. The wainscoted dining room has 2 built-in china cabinets and can easily host sizable dinner parties. Upstairs are 3 bedrooms with dormer windows and a full bathroom. Lower level offers a large semi-finished room with full-height windows, its own entrance plus laundry and storage. The deck creates a lovely outdoor retreat. There’s also an attached garage with double barn-style doors for parking. Minutes to JP’s shops, restaurants, Pond, Arboretum, and proximity to Longwood Med and downtown Boston. This home awaits your personal touch, and with a lot size of 8500+ square feet imagine the expansion potential.
