Home of the Week: 315 Walnut Street

Great bonuses on this home including a finished basement and sun porch.

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.

Imagine a warm summer evening, looking out over your front yard to a grand historic home with dozens of your neighbors enjoying the music.

Or take a quick, two-minute winter stroll to a library to pick-up a book to cozy up with next to your living room fireplace.

That's what this four-bed, two-and-a-half-bath colonial boasts. 

Located on Walnut Street, across from the Endicott Estate, the owners say the location couldn't be more perfect. It gives the kids access to a popular town sledding hill - when there's snow - and a giant playing field when there's not.

Inside the home, built in 1950, you find once was a former garage is now a sunny family room downstairs, and two children's rooms with a hallway bath upstairs. 

The in-the-middle-of-the-action kitchen was remodeled 10 years ago with granite countertops, white cupboards and recessed lighting. The current owners knocked out a wall between the kitchen and a front-facing dining room to allow more sunlight in and allow for a better space to entertain.

Off the kitchen is the formal living room with a fireplace, and a four-season sun porch that overlooks a fenced-in backyard with a shed.

Moving down to the giant finished basement, you'll find a well-lit playroom and an office with enough space for two L-shaped desks.

The master bedroom has pendant lights above a spot for a bed, and a walk-in closet. Another upstairs bathroom is just off the master bedroom. 

Several of the hallways still sport the original 1950s archways to give the home a rustic feel.
