For $355,000, the 1,100-square-foot, 2-bedroom Unit 2 at 39 Sedgwick St. in Jamaica Plain‘s much-desired Sumner Hill neighborhood has all you need in a first, even a second, home:
- an open floor plan for creative living-space arrangement;
- oversized windows pouring sun on hardwood floors;
- a living room with custom French doors to a sunporch;
- a custom kitchen with maple and slate finishes;
- a rear deck overlooking a beautiful back yard;
- a master bedroom with walk-in closet;
- a new gas heating system and optional central air conditioning;
- basement storage;
- convenient access to a wide range of shopping, dining, educational, historical and transportation amenities.
The living room is formally dressed with paneled wainscoting, and the front bay window adds space, light and elegance.
The side bay window broadens and brightens the dining room, which flows past a peninsular breakfast bar into the kitchen for food service convenience and more of an airy atmosphere.
The eat-in kitchen has been elegantly updated with maple cabinetry, fire-slate counters and open shelving.
The master bedroom features a ceiling fan with light and pendant lighting over the king-size bed area, which enables both partners to read in bed.
The fenced-in common back yard is a nice, sunny, shady spot for cookouts, cocktails, gardening, children’s play, and lots more.
Unit 2 is right down Sedgwick Street from the Jamaica Plain branch of the Boston Public Library, right up the street from Hollow Reed School, and right around the corner from more neighborhood amenities than you’ve ever dreamed possible, including:
- historic landmarks such as the Loring-Greenough House (built 1760) and the Soldier’s Monument in Monument Square, above;
- restaurants such as the JP Seafood Cafe;
- plays and musicals at the Footlight Club, America’s oldest community theater;
- grocery shopping at the Harvest Coop Market;
- Pine Village Preschool;
- exotic tree and flower collections at the Arnold Arboretum;
