42 School Street, Dedham, MA
This quintessential New England Colonial was built c. 1835 and is located in the heart of the historic village and Precinct 1. With classical architectural vernacular, the main house faces the street and has typical ell additions to the rear. In all, the property, with barn, garden shed, arched trellis, and vegetable garden resembles a miniature farm on the largest and most exceptional corner lot in the village. The main house has been lovingly restored, featuring wide-board, pumpkin-pine floors, fireplaces, and a charming original staircase. The additions have been completely reconstructed, offering an open floor plan with the most modern amenities. The spacious kitchen is a chef’s delight with state-of-the-art design and granite counters, and opens to a spacious family room that includes a fireplace and access to a private deck.
The second floor consists of four bedrooms and three full baths, with the master suite privately situated at the back of the house. The barn contains space for two cars, and a finished second floor with independent living quarters that provide the ideal one-bedroom apartment for in-laws, guests, au pair, or extended family. Library, boutique shopping, restaurants, and cinema are all within walking distance. Commuter rail stations and major highways to Boston and Providence are nearby, as is Legacy Place.
