Loft-style single-family Bell & Fandetti townhouse —Unique design tucked away at the end of a quite cul-de-sac. An ideal landing spot for those who want more than a condo and crave spectacular outdoor space and a great location. The main level combines the living, dining, and kitchen, anchored by southern exposure and a two-story mezzanine. Sliding glass doors open to a private deck and nice sized enclosed yard. The kitchen has granite countertops, new Frigidaire 5-burner gas range, new Beko refrigerator and Bosch Dishwasher. The third level has dramatic high ceilings with 5 skylights and an open lofted bedroom. The flexible living space can be utilized in so many ways, the attached heated garage can be used as a workshop, and the first-floor office can be used as a guest room. Plus, the potential to install an electric car charger. Sited equidistant to both Porter and Davis Squares, this location is minutes to the Red Line and commuter trains, and acclaimed restaurants. If you are looking for a move-in ready home, in a great location with all the features of a single family at the price of a condo—this is a must see!
