A Current Interpretation of The Traditional

At first glance, you see a lovely Belmont colonial set on a picturesque street. Upon exploring further, you find even more – a current interpretation of the traditional. Having been expanded several times, the current owners set out to pull the house together to make it more cohesive and functional. They opened walls, adjusted staircases, and updated the kitchen, bathrooms and more, so now the house offers everyone their place to “live”.

Designed for Cooking and Entertaining

As a professional chef, she cared about the kitchen, incorporating lots of counter space to cook and bake, as well as room for tasters and assistants. They selected top-of-the-line, professional appliances and integrated the original butler’s pantry so the house worked both for their family as well as for a party. The dining room seats a crowd and the fireplace is a welcome addition to a winter meal.

Space for All to Enjoy

With an abundance of comfortable spots to gather, read a book or play with friends, the home offers everyone their space to enjoy. The master with its original fireplace was enhanced by a gorgeous master bath, walk-in closet and private deck – a perfect perch for star gazing. Having five bedrooms meant that each of their two children could have their own room and still have a guest room, a playroom, and an office/sun room. This was a key element for the current owners.

A Secluded Yard for Entertainment and Play

The yard is a true surprise. The fence and plantings combined with the shape of the house, provide enormous privacy, but also make it feel complete.  The deck with it’s adjoining fire pit was well used by themselves and their guests. In addition, the kids had plenty of open space to call their own and play with their friends.  And, last but not least, their attached two-car garage with direct interior access made unloading groceries or escaping the snow, particularly easy.

This quintessential Belmont house, with its own unique twists, is the perfect blend of old and new – a current interpretation of the traditional.
