Renovating Boston’s traditional triple-deckers that dot the city is a tightrope between maintaining the original period details and inherent charm and retrofitting homes built in the early part of the 20th century to make room for modern conveniences.
With new construction, homebuyers rarely have to worry about whether their new living room can fit a comfy sectional or if their bedroom can accommodate a king-size bed. Located minutes away from the Ashmont train station, the recent development at 20 Fuller St. has all your 21st century perks built right in. Unit 4, priced attractively at $599,000, is new on the market in this coveted building and location.
This Ashmont neighborhood enjoys a walkability score of 80 and transit score of 82, and the building is ideally located near Peabody Square, currently undergoing a renovation to its plaza that will bring more greenery and community space to the area. With this revitalization, and a new American Provisions grocery store just steps away slated to open this fall, you can walk, take the T or drive (the unit has two deeded parking spaces) anywhere with ease.
Boasting more than 1,200 square feet of living space, Unit 4 is ideally suited for entertaining with an open concept kitchen, dry bar and living area that make up one flowing space that’s as intimate for dinner parties as it works for gathering around for a big game. The kitchen is thoughtfully designed with white custom cabinetry, crown moulding and counter space galore. No builder’s-grade finishes here — stainless steel Jenn-Air appliances, tasteful recessed lighting and a pendant light accent, and handsome gray back tile backsplash that carries over to the dry bar area. If your party gets a little louder, rest assured that the units in the building are outfitted with insulation designed to reduce noise.
Three bedrooms, including a large master with walk-in closet, take advantage of the great space and light. The master bath is done in muted gray ceramics and quartz counters, with an enormous spa-like shower with glass wall and upgraded fittings.
Completing the details are in-unit laundry, air conditioning and surround-sound wiring.
Open house hours are from noon to 2 p.m. Sunday.
The sale of the condo is being handled by Charlene Folan at Jack Conway Cityside, 617-699-7383.
