3 things you need to know about 48 Brantwood Rd. Arlington MA
Do you love the urban convenience of local shops, theaters, and restaurants, and short commutes, but also pine for a quiet country setting in which to enjoy them? It might seem impossible, but it’s not! The Town of Arlington was recently dubbed the “Top Spot to Live” by the Boston Globe for its perfect blending of city and country life, beating the other 350 Massachusetts towns and cities. And 48 Brantwood Road in Arlington MA is just one property on the market that perfectly exemplifies that award!
Here are three things I love about this home:
1. The outdoor living space includes an entertainment sized patio from which your guests can watch Boston fireworks on July 4th – or enjoy the sun setting over the Boston skyline and Arlington’s Spy Pond every day of the year! The kids will be busy romping in the double-sized back yard, picking peaches, apples and mulberries from mature fruit trees, or joining neighbors for soccer and skateboarding on Brantwood Road, a beautiful street with minimal traffic.
2. I also love the potential 48 Brantwood Road offers! With hardwood floors, two fireplaces, a cozy family room, spacious living room, and a great teen suite in the garden level, this home has the bones for a 21st century renovation. The kitchen and dining room already connect to the flagstone patio through new sliders; it would be fairly simple to create an open granite/stainless kitchen and dining area that could flow right outside on breezy summer evenings! (Note: this renovated kitchen is in a house of the same type, era, and size, and in the same neighborhood).
3. And the convenience factor can’t be beat. You can commute quickly into Boston - or Cambridge – by bike, train, bus or car! The renowned Minuteman Bikeway runs the length of Arlington, connecting Bedford to Davis Square, via Alewife Train Station. From 48 Brantwood it’s a quick hop to the bikepath via the Spy Pond Footpaths and back roads or via Pleasant Street. If you’re not in the mood to bike or walk, just hop on the 67 bus for a 10 minute ride to Alewife; pickup is just 2 minutes from the 48 Brantwood. Routes 2, 128 and 93 are also a snap to reach.
