Move right into your new home. Everything you’ve been looking for. We are pleased to present this great listing of a four-bedroom, one-and-a-half-bath Colonial. The house has 2316 square feet of living area, on a large, park-like 3/4-acre lot, and there is a two-car garage attached to the house via a mudroom/breezeway. Sunshine fills the front-to-back living room, which features a fireplace and built-in shelving and cabinetry. There is a formal dining room and a large eat-in kitchen. One of the bedrooms, on the first floor, is currently being used as an office.

The fenced-in private backyard seems to go on forever, with mature trees and perennial gardens.

Upstairs there is a front-to-back master bedroom with ample closet space, plus two additional bedrooms and a full bath. Hardwood floors run throughout most of the house.

There is an abundance of storage in the basement, which also includes a finished family room with a fireplace, a workshop, and a laundry room with a cedar closet.

The house is conveniently located in the heart of the desirable Manor neighborhood, close to Diamond Middle School, the Minuteman Bikeway, and about a mile to Lexington Center. The MBTA bus stop is nearby. Elementary school students attend the highly lauded Estabrook School, which will have a brand new facility soon. See, also: Boston Magazine’s Best School rankings.
