Rarely do historical details, high-end amenities, light-filled spaces, outdoor acreage, off-street parking and neighborhood beauty merge as immaculately as in 42 Hemman St. in Roslindale. For only $324,900, this 1,149-square-foot, 3-bed, 1.5-bath single-family offers the comforts of home at a condo’s price.
The living room lets in the light from many directions and pristinely preserves its original 1925 woodwork for many generations.
Wainscoting, crown moldings, window casings, hardwood flooring, and the stair’s newel post all add up to one warm, elegant formal dining room.
The kitchen’s new black granite counter, white appliances and custom paneled white cabinetry blend beautifully with the original built-in china cabinet, chest of drawers and paneled wood cabinetry.
The bedrooms are both roomy and cozy, spacious enough for a good-sized bed and a good set of furniture yet intimate enough for a good night’s sleep. The second bedroom is built in with a sliding-door closet that blends well with the original woodwork.
The sunny back yard is superb for summer entertaining and recreation, surrounded by a quiet Boston neighborhood with amenities abounding. These include fitness trails, picnic grounds and golf courses in Stony Brook Reservation, the George Conley and Phineas Bates schools, and Roslindale Village’s shops, restaurants, markets, Commuter Rail/bus service and public library.
