Hollywood it’s not, but glamor it’s got, for far less than half the cost of a Bel-Air mansion: $439,000. For that price, 27 Hollywood Road in West Roxbury offers many mansion amenities.
This attractive 1,688-square-foot, 3-bed colonial boasts formal living and dining rooms with hardwood floors, updated kitchen and bath, a home office with half bath, a third-level bonus room, elegant but useful built-ins old and new, updated systems, new windows and roof, and a pleasant tree-lined street accessible to ample urban accessories.
The front-hall stair and Gothic archway are elegant lead-ins into the formal living room, where a woodburning brick fireplace warms your housewarming and a light yellow wall treatment intensifies the sun from the double window.
The dining room is formally suited for any dinner occasion with a built-in boutique china cabinet and serving shelf, a chair rail, and a blue lower-wall treatment.
All-around elegance and efficiency characterizes the kitchen, which has been updated with classic paneled cabinetry, easy-clean laminate counters and new appliances, with room to spare for a breakfast table.
The home office features a broad Chicago window for optimum light for work and study, as well as a convenient half-bath.
The master bedroom’s double window and corner location assures you ample morning light, and its chartreuse wall treatment brings a touch of spring into your step.
The carpeted third-floor bonus room can be used as a playroom, a game room, a home gym, or a loft guestroom.
The one-car garage is neatly tucked into the house’s foundation, with three outdoor parking spaces by the spacious back yard. The home office is right by the parking for an easier office-to-office commute.
That commute is further facilitated by 27 Hollywood Road‘s adjacency to the VFW and West Roxbury parkways. Both active and passive recreation are nearby at Hynes Playground, Hancock Woods and Hoar Memorial Sanctuary.
