Home of the Week: 20 Mason St.

This beautifully restored colonial is sited in one of Winchester's most sought after neighborhoods.

Classic architectural lines, a timeless white backdrop and colonial blue accents all make up this home's structural introduction into a home where tradition and elegance are continuous mainstays in this 84 year-old timeless property. Inside, its decor and condition far exceed expectations with ornate moldings, soothing hues and period wallpaper lining the walls and original organic materials have been graciously preserved to proudly present its historic roots.

The 23 x 13 square foot living room immediately launches the impressive collection of its protected and enhanced period details with wood moldings and a terracotta brick fireplace while the 12 x 14 square foot dining area takes sophistication a step further with decorative moldings, wainscoting and a chair rail. The 17 x 10 square foot eat-in kitchen turns a little more rustic, but still maintains that vintage setting with a wood-beamed ceiling, custom cabinetry, a lovely greenhouse window and stained glass. French doors provide entry into a sun-drenched 15 x 10 square foot family room with three walls of oversized windows.

The second level hosts three liberally-sized bedrooms with an impressive front-to-back 23 x 13 square foot master and two additional bedrooms at 14 x 12 and 14 x 11 square feet. The third floor lodges an additional 14 x 12 square foot bedroom, a full bath and a 13 x 13 square foot office which could also be utilized as an au-pair, teenager or guest suite. The 860 square feet of finished living space in the basement is not included in the listed square footage and significantly boosts the home's measurements while also providing alternative recreation and leisure opportunities. This level includes a 20 x 15 square foot play room with a walk-in closet and a half bath, a 15 x 12 square foot bonus room and a 17 x 7 square foot laundry area.

In addition to its epoch standing and enduring details, this property has been meticulously restored, improved and maintained with many complimentary amenities, including rich, hardwood floors, upgraded systems, replacement windows, new roof and exterior paint, all applied in 2011, an alarm system, a professionally manicured landscaped with brick walkways, patios, a ginger garden, sprinkler system and picturesque night-scaping. Potential homebuyers will welcome this new opportunity to experience a piece of Winchester's history without sacrificing any modern standards and preferences.
