Winchester Home of the Week: 2 Lakeview Road

A unique taste of European design with contemporary updates.


Experience Italian flavor, no, not the food, but the architecture, right in Winchester with this magnificent century-old Italian Renaissance revival that is currently on the real estate market. While many renovations have been made to update this residence, every change was tastefully made with the European period and decor in mind. Some recent kitchen updates include installed granite, Wolf cooktop and Dacor ovens and radiant heated flooring.

Twelve rooms and three levels of living space throughout the 4,863 square feet provide a variety of room options to accommodate many diverse family necessities. Its elevated ceilings and spacious room designs are just some of the touches that are analogous to European building and embellishments. Other more significant design gestures are the use of moldings and wood on the walls and ceilings, lighting choices and warm color schemes.

The 30 x 16 square foot living room resembles a background from a vintage movie set with rich wainscoting walls, floor-to-ceiling architectural windows, ceiling moldings, a fireplace and muted custom draperies. This room also opens into a screened porch and paneled library/billiard room. The elegant formal dining room emulates the living area in sophistication with another arched window and an elegant chandelier and is conveniently situated adjacent to the sunny 18 x 11 square foot family room and 13 x 17 square foot kitchen completely remodeled with stone/ceramic tile, solid stone/granite countertops, a wet bar and stainless steel appliances.

The second floor boasts three bedrooms, including a 17 x 18 square foot master suite with a full, private bath, walk-in closet, fireplace, dressing room and a versatile sitting room. The third level offers a fourth bedroom and full bath and could be used as a teenager or au-pair suite.

This fantastic property is only a two-minute walk to Wedgemere train station, but residents will likely have to make an effort each day to leave this unique home setting.

Current real estate trends are off the charts. Even mid-sized homes are going for much higher asking prices. As a Winchester roofing contractor (http://www.olympicroofing.com/winchester-ma-roofing), I'm very in tune with homeowner trends. It seems like there are more people staying put than moving right now, which is really driving up the price of properties.
