Lexington Home of the Week: 3 Essex St.
This beautifully-designed colonial draws natural sunlight that drenches its rays throughout its open floor plan.
This wonderfully designed colonial built in 1955 by Mark Moore was created ahead of its time. It offers wonderfully spacious rooms within an open floor plan and plenty of light to reflect and stream throughout every space. It also possesses many charming built-ins, and while it has supplied sufficient dimensions for its previous owners, it presents viable expansion areas on two floors can easily be adaptable to today's diverse lifestyles.
An hospitable red front door warmly welcomes guests into the home and a 21 x 13 square foot living room with a fireplace and a wall of exposed and concealed built-ins that stretch the width of the room. The intimate 11 x 11 square foot dining area presents a cozy setting for entertaining with a charming corner china cabinet to display personal collectables. The 13 x 9 square foot kitchen provides all the ingredients for successful meal preparation, which can also be an interactive affair with its cabinet cut-out with the neighboring 14 x 13 square foot family room encouraging conversation between the two spaces.
The second level hosts three generously-sized bedrooms with a master at 17 x 11 square feet that includes a walk-in closet and two additional rooms at 15 x 11 and 11 x 10 square feet. As mentioned earlier, this home currently provides two finished levels with 1,577 square feet of finished living space, but the full attic and basement can easily expand this property while maintaining the home's existing footprint. Recreational and leisure opportunities are also presently enhanced with the professionally landscaped quarter of an acre private wooded landscape.
While this property already presents many appealing features, its location is considered one of the best in town sited in the Hastings/Diamond district on a dead-end street and just steps to local retailing, public transportation, restaurants and a bike path. Perhaps its biggest advantage, however, is that future residents can simply unpack their bags and enjoy all that this home and the town of Lexington have to offer.
