A 63-year-old colonial home is currently listed as for sale. Waltham Patch reports that the character displayed in this traditional home and the sound structure could attract a number of buyers. Located at 54 Thornton Road, Waltham, Massachusetts, the home is listed at $619,000 and contains eight rooms. Sitting on .19 acres of land the 2,748-square-foot home features three bedrooms and two two-and-a-half baths.
"This home's classic history is proudly flaunted with its traditional exterior introduction and the welcoming 18 x 12 square foot living room, with a fireplace, that warmly greets guests as they enter. An oversized threshold provides seamless access to the neighboring 18 x 14 square foot gourmet kitchen that was recreated into the showcase and hub of this home. The fabulous culinary center is fully equipped with high-end stainless steel appliances, a radiant heated floor, dual sinks, premier cabinetry and granite surfaces, including a bi-level center island bar. For relaxed occasions, this floor also includes a charming 20 x 10 square foot den, a new designer tiled bath and laundry center," states the real estate listing.
Despite the classical design of the structure, a number of modern amenities and upgrades have been added to the property. The radiant floor heating system included in the structure is a more recent addition. However, it is already gaining attention as a quality upgrade that guests and residents can enjoy. The utility option is environmentally friendly and will reduce the amount of fine particulate matter that will travel around the home and could potentially irritate an individual's allergies. Often, older homes are described as dusty. This won't be the case with a radiant floor heating solution, which unlike forced hot air, does not push dust and allergens around a space.
