There are 55 houses on the market in West Roxbury, 19 of them are priced in the $400,000’s. To make your West Roxbury house search a bit easier I’m reviewing three homes in superb locations worth a look.
9 Park Street, $469,000. New to market, this is a 4 bedrooms, 1.5 bath home of approximately 1700 sf. Beautiful located in the Highlands, 9 Park Street is surrounded by grand historic homes just a short walk from Centre Street. It’s a red house, situated on a corner lot. The house has a wood burning fire place in the large living room, an oversized dining room and big kitchen. You’ll need to pass through the half bath to access the door to the back yard. Four well proportioned bedrooms upstairs, and a walk-up attic suitable for storage.
The basement looks as if it was finished many years ago and can probably be easily restored to a usable living space. The rest of the home needs a facelift, cosmetic updating throughout. You’d have to paint the house immediately, the kitchen and bath renovations will be necessary in the coming years, but the house is livable as it is. For a classic home in a convenient and prestigious area, this is a great choice, but only if you don’t mind investing some sweat equity.
204 Weld Street, $434,900. Three bedrooms, 1.5 bath, 1400 sf colonial. Located on busy Weld Street, this unassuming white side-entrance colonial has a new kitchen and cheerful colors. The main floor features a half bath off the new kitchen, a living room, dining room and heated sun-room. The best part is the expansive deck, with stairs down to a level yard.
Three bedrooms upstairs are simple and serve their purpose. The house is bright, comfortable and clean. Perfect for a young family who wants outdoor space. For 1400 square feet, it’s a good choice if you are looking for a super-easy commute to the city.
120 Russett Road, $425,000. Brick bungalow of about 1400 sf, 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths. It’s like a Cape and a Ranch had a love child. Almost all the living space, including bedrooms, are on the first floor. Walk directly into the dining room, which is completely open to the living room. This large space is flooded with light from the many windows. Kitchen is a bit awkward but also had good light and is easily tolerated with all white finishes.
The hall in the back of the home leads to two well sized bedrooms and a bathroom. Walk downstairs to find a slightly musty finished basement. With a little bit of work, this space will be much more usable.
From the main level you have stairs leading to the second floor. There you find a large master suite, complete with skylights, generous closets, and a private bath.
Located between Weld Street and Centre Street, you can easily walk to catch the train or get on the bus. Walk to shops and restaurants. It’s a quiet area populated mostly with single family homes and two family homes. From 120 Russett you only have to walk 3 minutes to Hynes Field, one of the best hangouts for dogs, kids, and sports lovers. It’s one of my regular hangouts. See you there!
