Home of the Week: 4 Madison Ave.

This charming colonial has been extensively refurbished but still remains one of Winchester's historic gems.

This beautifully restored 142-year-old Colonial has received many updates and enhancements, yet still exhibits and reveals its period charm and epoch spirit. It has recently obtained new windows, roof, insulation, wood siding, deck systems, bath and a first-floor laundry room. With these valuable improvements, it now offers not only a beautiful property with a rich history and local roots, but a structurally sound residence with charismatic settings that a new homeowner will find both comfortable and enchanting.

The inviting front farmer's porch is an architectural staple for this age home and warmly welcomes guests and residence into its cherished web. The first floor provides many relaxed areas for entertaining with a lovely 15 x 15 square foot living room with elongated windows and an intimate 15 x 13 square foot fireplaced dining area. The 15 x 14 square foot eat-in kitchen has been freshly decorated with a crisp white canvas in the cabinets and center island and presents a fitting hospitable setting while the 11 x 9 square foot sitting room functions as the perfect site for restful, solitude moments.

Three generously-sized bedrooms are located on the second floor at 15 x 12, 15 x 11 and 13 x 10 square feet as well as a convenient 15 x 11 sunken home office with a cathedral ceiling.

For the residents who prefer outdoor options, this home offers a wonderfully landscaped and lush three quarters of acre of fenced in land and a spacious raised deck and is handily located within walking distance to town, the commuter rail station and local schools.

This vintage property is the quintessential model of the historical residences that still strongly represent Winchester's historical past and the commitment its owners assume in preserving that legacy. That responsibility is now available for its next fortunate tenant and the rewards for that dedication will be endless.
