Your dream home awaits, perfectly nestled in a prime location within walking distance to everything Lexington’s town center has to offer. Welcome home to modern style and curb appeal galore in this beautifully maintained Village Colonial offering an open-concept living area on the first floor that pairs nicely with its period details. This stunning home was built in 1886 and quality craftsmanship surrounds you at every turn while gleaming hardwood floors and an abundance of natural light define the interior. Colorful perennials in the front yard await the arrival of spring as the charming farmer’s porch invites you inside through double entry doors adorned by etched glass panels. The front foyer is welcoming with gleaming hardwood floors and a beautifully carved open staircase where the lovely stained glass window catches glimpses of light.

Natural light streams through the large windows of the formal living room while polished hardwood floors grace this beautiful room featuring a gas fireplace with an ornately carved mantel and surround. Double French doors lead from the living room into the family room, spilling even further into the breakfast room, and the kitchen. The open-concept family room features hardwood floors, recessed lighting, a ceiling fan, a bank of decorative windows for abundant natural light, and built-in shelving. The large double windows of the breakfast room are detailed with a transom arch and offer the perfect place for your houseplants to bask in the light. A French door, with sidelites and another transom window, offers exterior access to the rear deck and opens the home to even more light and air, while offering delightful views of the rear deck and landscape beyond. A cast iron, wood-burning stove is nestled in the corner of the breakfast room providing a warm and inviting environment for the family to gather in as cookies are baking or homework is tended to.
A thoughtfully designed, open floor plan offers a seamless transition to the kitchen from the family and breakfast rooms as the sparkling hardwood floors continue to span the home. Inspire your inner chef as you prepare culinary delights in the stunning, updated kitchen with granite counters, stainless steel appliances, modern white cabinetry, a gas cooktop, a peninsula island, beverage refrigerator, a tile backsplash, and recessed lighting. A large built-in hutch is perfect for showcasing your fine dinnerware. Enjoy special celebrations with friends and family in the freshly painted, elegant formal dining room with hardwood floors, a bay of large windows, crown molding, and a fantastic vintage light fixture. A half bathroom off the kitchen offers stylish white beadboard trim and a modern sink with an updated vanity. A convenient mudroom with a laundry area and covered exterior access to the two-car garage, oversized driveway, and backyard completes the first level of this wonderful home.
A Jack and Jill stairway from the breakfast room offers additional access to the second level where the home continues to impress with the sun-splashed master suite, two more family bedrooms, a sitting area, and a bedroom that has been converted into a huge walk-in closet offering ultimate storage and organization. The open and airy master bedroom is full of natural light and features sparkling hardwood floors, crown molding, and a ceiling fan. The newly renovated master bathroom stuns with a beautifully tiled shower stall with a frameless glass door, a stylish new vanity with a Quartz countertop, and ceramic tile flooring. The family bedrooms are spacious and light-filled with shining hardwood floors. One of the bedrooms features a large window, skylights, a cathedral ceiling, and overlooks tranquil views of the backyard and pool area. The newly renovated family bathroom is tastefully done in neutral tones with a tiled tub and shower in an eye-catching pattern. The second level’s sitting area offers a large, open-concept space perfect for use as an office or whatever you may desire.
Stairs from the sitting area lead up to the finished third floor offering a spacious retreat perfect for use as a teen suite. The freshly painted third level features new bamboo flooring, skylights, a cathedral ceiling and includes a huge family room area, an additional bedroom, and another full bathroom. The large basement runs the length of the house offering abundant additional storage space.
Outdoor entertainment and relaxation options are limitless with the front farmer’s porch, an additional rear deck, and the fenced pool area.
