Mike & Jim Savas Berkshire Hathaway Home Services Commonwealth R.E.
Presenting the historic Wellington Homestead, built circa 1808 by a distinguished descendent of one of our country's first settlers. Perched on a hill on a large landscaped lot with Boston views, steps from Belmont Ctr. and public transport, it offers 11+ rooms, 5 bedrooms, 4 fireplaces and 2.5 baths. Built in the Federal Style, it was converted to a Greek Revival in the early 19th century in honor of our country's newfound independence. Unlike many homes of the period, the wealthy owners incorporated 8 to 8.5 ft. ceilings, wide plank floors & custom built-ins. 1st level features a family room with beamed ceilings & built-ins, a spacious eat-in farmhouse kitchen, and formal living & dining rooms perfect for entertaining. Second level offers the main bedroom & two additional bedrooms. Third level offers 2 more bedrooms (one double-width, one lined with built-in bookshelves) & a full bath, with a generous 4th floor attic. Attached garage/shed has 2 large heated, sky-lit bonus rooms above. Come own a piece of history.
