Charm and vintage character best describe this antique colonial on the Lexington open real estate market.

Just last year the home received a new Burham boiler, a new hot water heater, fresh exterior paint, new front porch decking, landing and stairs and a pea stone driveway. A new kitchen roof was installed last year as well as a raised vegetable garden bed. In 2001, a new roof and copper gutters were installed and in 2000 and 2005 two new sheds, a new basement room and attic flooring for storage were also inducted.
Each of their eight rooms in this home convey a welcoming invitation to both its residents and guests. The warm fireplaced 25 x 13 square foot living room is lined with simply decorated blush walls and hardwood flooring while the formal 18 x 12 square foot dining area provides an abundance of natural sunlight with a unique wall of windows. The spectacular kitchen has vaulted ceilings with skylights and elevated shelving and provides beautiful views of the gardens and landscape. A cozy 14 x 10 square foot family room opens to a tiered deck again providing panoramic nature scenes.
The second floor boasts a master bedrooms, three spare bedrooms and a full bath while the lower level offers a cedar closet, bedroom, a workroom and utility room. As the first floor, these levels also accurately reflect the tone and casual nature of the main floor and landscape.
