This brand new home will draw you in with its kitchen alone - let alone the giant closet space in each of the four bedrooms. The kitchen, with an island at its center, has grantie countertops, stainless steel appliances and cupboard space that almost doesn't end. The modern lights, recessed lighting and modern fixtures mean you wouldn't need to change anything when you move in. The first floor has a half-bathroom, laundry room and an open concept that could become a dining room, living room and home office. Hardwood stretches throughout the first floor and up a two-level staircase to the second floor. A large master bedroom comes with a walk-in closet and an on-suite bathroom with double sinks, and a large modern shower. The three other…

The charm of a 1950s home with many of the modern features buyers are looking for.
While this Chickering Road home dates back to the 1950s, it sports modern features that many prospective buyers are in the market for: granite kitchen countertops, new windows and a new roof, central air conditioning and original hardwood. The hardwood on the second floor, which has four bedrooms, is underneath carpet, but is ready to be rediscovered. The home starts with an eat-in kitchen and an adjacent dining room with a built-in China cabinet. A three-season porch comes off the dining room and overlooks a beautiful backyard full of lush green grass and mature trees that give privacy and shade. Hardwood moldings and door frames beautify the first floor, which also has a living room with a large window in the front of the house. It …

Herbs Provide Both Flavor and Aroma to Garden and the Kitchen
Herbs can add so much depth to a dish, but those bunches from the grocery store never seem to last long and though not expensive individually, those figures do add up. Wouldn't it be great this summer to read a recipe, note the ingredients, and head out to the garden to freshly snip those flavorful elements? Herb gardening can be a resourceful tool for the kitchen as well as a lovely enhancement to any vegetable or flowering garden. A surprising fact about herbs is that they can be planted as perennials or annuals. With that in mind, don’t plant perennial herbs in the middle of a vegetable garden. Place them in a protected space or bed near the house. For annual herbs, they benefit from the rich soils and sun provided with vegetable …

This former farmhouse has charm and a great home.
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 words down-to-earth charm don't do this late 19th century farmhouse justice. According to the owners, the home sat on acres of apple orchards, and the home has maintained its one-of-a-kind flair through roughly its 140 years. A three-season closed porch welcomes visitors from the front of the home, a place for peaceful sitting or sun-filled together time. Walking into the home, a dining room with 19th-century features is to the right and a bright living room welcomes guests on the left. The bright kitchen has plenty of counter space and is wide open, perfect for a …

Steps away from Legacy and Fairbanks Park, but on a quiet street good for relaxation.
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. This beauty of a home on Matthews Street oozes custom features - the quartz top on the kitchen counters and island, the automatic dust vacuum under the island and surround sound on the first floor, outside and master bedroom. Built by the owners in 2007, the home fits a growin family and is a home that doesn't seem to waste an inch of space. There are four bedrooms on the home's second level, including an on-suite full bathroom off the master and another full bath on the floor. Up on the third level is another very large bedroom with an on-suite bathroom and two walk-in …
