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.
The 1920s Oakdale bungalow spews charm throughout the 900-plus square feet on Madison Street.
From the brick fire place with white wooden molding encasing it, to the original hardwood floors that gleam throughout the house, this place would make Home, Sweet Home for a new family starting out, or empty-nesters looking to downsize and wanting a condo-alternative.
The sellers, who moved into the home in 2006, have since finished off the basement, making it into a family room and playroom with washer and dryer hookup.
The current family also remodeled the home's bathroom with white and black subway tiling complete with a pedestal sink that matches the time period of the home.
The home's kitchen brings classic 1920s construction to life with a built-in ironing board, and a breakfast nook with the original benches and table in pristine condition.
There are two bedrooms off the living room, and office space in the rear of the home.
The home has a garage, and the owners recently replaced the heating systems and the roof.
A new family could easily take advantage of the home's location - a hop, skip and jump from Oakdale Elementary School and a short walk to the commuter rail.
