North End home features remodeled goodness

October 09, 2009|By HARRY NOGLE / For HomeSource

This 2618-square-foot beautifully maintained two-story brick Colonial located at 1041 Woodland Way might be one of the nicest homes in the North End.

The present owners have remodeled this home, which was built in 1950, over the 17 years they have owned it. They've replaced the original windows with vinyl, double-hung, tilt-out windows, refinished the hardwood floors and installed ceramic tile in the kitchen and baths. The plaster walls throughout the home are immaculate.

On the entrance level, a formal dining room with chandelier is located to the right, while the living room with a gas, remote-controlled fireplace is located to the left.

Off the living room, a paneled office/den with built-in bookcases is conveniently located with plenty of natural light from windows to the front and rear. Track lights on the ceiling provide additional, focused light.


Warm oak cabinets in the recently remodeled kitchen provide generous storage space, while the white finished appliances and the Swanstone countertop lighten the room. The garden window creates space and allows natural light.

Another garden window lights the second-floor landing.

The recently renovated guest room is light and bright, as is the second bedroom, which is enhanced with white radiator covers.

A full bath with a shower/tub services the two bedrooms.

The master bath is equipped with an oversized Jacuzzi tub and separate shower. The countertop is tiled, and the floors are ceramic tile. A walk-in closet is located outside the bath.

A short flight of steps leads to the walk-up attic. The attic floor is constructed of tongue-and-groove boards.

The basement is paneled and carpeted. It's furnished with a bath, shower and a dry bar. The laundry room is located in the basement with a built-in work area for scrapbooking or other projects. Walk-out stairs lead from the basement to the backyard.

An in-ground, gunite-finish heated pool is located behind the home, complete with a pool house equipped with electricity, cable and phone service.

Beside the pool house is a two-story, two-car garage with a workshop/office above the garage.

Also behind the house is a Koi pond with a wooden bridge beside a brick patio.

This home is professionally landscaped with an underground irrigation system. It has been newly painted inside and outside. The brick exterior is maintenance-free. The soffit and fascia are vinyl, and the gutters are protected from debris with gutter guards.

The home is heated with natural gas hot-water radiators and a gas fireplace. The heating system is separated into three zones for better heat control. All radiators are covered with attractive wood radiator covers. Ceiling fans are located in nearly every room to supplement the central air conditioning. The home is protected with a security system.
