18 School Street, Dedham, MA
18 School Street offers a rare opportunity to own a single family house-condominium in the historic village center of Precinct 1. The exterior of this c.1795 Colonial reads quintessential New England while the interior is right off the pages of Architectural Digest. The owner, architect/artist, has given new life to this historic house with its wide board floors, exposed beams, and many fireplaces. While respecting its charm and integrity, the floor plan and rooms have been altered and updated to accommodate a more contemporary lifestyle. The gorgeous kitchen is still central to the house with an expansive island, modern appliances, and views of an open staircase, several rooms, and garden. The extended site lines accomplished through a more open floor plan and larger windows are very pleasing as is the abundance of natural light.
Four bedrooms and three full baths are located on the second floor. A one-bedroom apartment with its own private entrance on the lower level provides rental income, but could be used as a home office or guest/au pair suite. There is driveway parking for two cars. The town center is steps away with boutique shopping, restaurants, and cinema. Trains to Boston, Providence, and NYC are easily accessible as are airports, major routes and Legacy Place.
