There's something beautiful about the older styled homes that are found in New England. Colonials are a traditional site along many of the roads in states across the northeast. However, even fans of the construction style can admit that the older properties can sometimes lack the comforts that modern people have some to expect. Not so for one Colonial home at 21 Old Colony Road in Wellesley, Ma. Wicked Local reported that this structure has been updated to include all of the charm and sophistication of the older Colonial style, but also the modern amenities people have come to expect. 
The home is located in the Cliff Estates community and features unique, elegant details indoors and out. According to the news source, the house sits on a .38 acre lot and is 3,489 square feet in size. The five bedrooms, formal dining and living room, chef's kitchen and open family room make this an ideal property for a homeowner who entertains a lot. The separate formal and casual living areas mean that regardless of what the occasion, the property owner has the right space for entertaining. The various nooks and crannies that are part of the structure ensure that this is hardly a cookie-cutter home, and instead features plenty of personality and style. The front vestibule includes a double closet and a French door, which opens to a much larger foyer and a staircase to the second floors. Characteristics like these make the house a fetching property, with plenty of investment value, as well as charm for making it a proper home.
Even a Colonial home can feature the materials and technologies that are often associated with more modern structures. This property has been renovated to include high R-value insulation and updated windows and doors to reduce energy loss. A radiant floor heating system has also been included in the design of the property to provide a homeowner with the ability to save money each winter as the price of oil or natural gas increases, yet remain perfectly comfortable. The even delivery of heat and expert temperature control options provided by the system ensures that a homeowner and his or her guests will always remain comfortable and have toasty toes.
