…the old-fashioned way: the single-family way. For $1,099,000, 26 Garden St. offers everything you need for independent living in an intimate neighborhood, including three full levels of floor-through living with 4+ bedrooms, 3 full baths, a fireplaced living room and master bedroom, two bonus rooms, a private roofdeck, generous basement storage, in-house laundry, and new thermal windows.
The living room features a woodburning fireplace flanked by ceiling-high bookcases, with plenty of over-mantel room for a flat-screen TV or work of art. Hardwood floors are preserved throughout the house.
The chef’s kitchen is enriched New England country-style with blue-patterned porcelain tilework in the spirit of the China Trade import tableware the region is historically famous for. The peninsular cooktop counter is also a handy breakfast bar for instant service of bacon and eggs or intimate chats with the cook.
The master bedroom has its own woodburning fireplace, placed to warm your feet while you’re reading in bed.
This second bedroom, boasting a built-in bookcase as well as a closet, has many use possibilities.
