This expanded raised ranch in Needham offers four bedrooms, convenient single-floor living and a bonus in-law suite.
This beautiful 52 year-old raised ranch in Needham flaunts its timeless character throughout each of its well-appointed 12 rooms. It was progressively designed with a fluid floor plan and warm and inviting settings with features reminiscent of today's new construction. The combination of its forward-thinking architect and builder, in addition to its many advantageous updates, are what sets this property apart from the rest on the Needham real estate market. It offers two above-ground levels with most of its bedrooms on the main floor for convenient single-floor living as well as diverse rooms to adapt to residents' varying and evolving interests and needs. Its living accommodations are further enhanced by its fabulous in-law, au-pair, guest suite on the bottom floor.
A few steps up from the main foyer opens into an inviting 13 x 24 square foot living room with a fireplace flanked by floor-to-ceiling built-ins. A intimate 12 x 13 square foot dining area provides the ideal setting for formal occasions and holidays while the 12 x 16 square foot eat-in kitchen, equipped with new appliances and an abundance of cabinet and counter space, perfectly assumes the significant role as the familiar and warm hub of this level. The charming 10 x 14 square foot newly renovated sunroom provides the ideal background for relaxation, especially with its picturesque view of its rear landscape through walls of windows. As mentioned, this floor also offers the majority of this home's lodging accommodations with four bedrooms measuring at 13 x 16, 12 x 15, 12 x 16 and 11 x 16 square feet and two full baths.
The lower level offers flexibility for a variety of uses with its range of room options, beginning with a suite that offers a full bath, pantry and breakfast bar. This floor also includes a 23 x 25 square foot fireplaced family room and a 10 x 14 square foot bonus room that could be utilized as a bedroom, home office or gym.
This lovely home rests on a full acre of lush, gorgeously-landscaped, fenced-in grounds that open up many opportunities for outdoor recreation, including the installation of an in-ground pool. The lot even includes a separate heated studio space.
This beautiful property is a brand new prospect to the Needham real estate market and offers a fresh, resourceful take on the traditional raised ranch.
