Home of the Week: 2 Kingsbury Lane
This 1940s colonial features large eating areas and six bedrooms.
Editor's note: Home of the Week is a new feature that goes beyond what's in the listing, giving you an inside look at some of the great homes on the market in Dedham.
Tucked-away in Precinct 1, the bright 2,701 square-foot home is nestled in the woods on the private Kingsbury Lane, but is a summer walk away from Legacy Place and amazingly close to Rte. 128.
The home's red front door leads into a living room that sports a large bay window, allowing for an enjoyable sun-splashed afternoon. At night, the living room becomes a cozy location to cuddle next to a marble gas fireplace.
Following the original hardwood floors, the dining room is the center of the home - in terms of location and in feel. Behind the dining room would be a perfect spot for a family room - complete with a gas stove.
Adjacent to the bright dining room is a recently remodeled kitchen that features granite countertops, recessed lighting and new white cabinets - but the best feature is the window that overlooks the backyard.
Next to the kitchen is a less formal and very bright eating area with a tray ceiling perfect for small family meals.
As you head back through the dining room and down a hallway, you'll find a built-in bookcase a half-bathroom and full-bathroom with two large bedrooms plus an office.
But for a growing family, more room is needed. And that's why the current owners - residents for the past 30 years - built a second floor as an addition in the early 1990s.
Up the two-leveled staircase, are four more bedrooms, all with great size.
The master bedroom has four windows, a beautiful walk-in closet and an on-suite full-bathroom.
At the top of the staircase is a small bonus room, perfect for a nursery or additional office.
