We continue our boogie through Beacon this week with a one-level ranch that’s surprisingly roomy, is only a 10-minute walk to town, and has a fine mix of updates and original charm.
Situated on a quiet street among other suburb-y homes, this 2,000-square-foot brick ranch built in 1970 has only two bedrooms but is perfect for a couple or a one-kid family.
Wide sidelights flank the entry, pouring light into the bright living room. Looks like that funky-cool pendant illuminates what could be a dining area. Where do those French doors lead?
To a sunlit den, with another stunning pendant light and dark floors.
Head back through those French doors, through the living/dining area, and into the kitchen, where you’ll find granite counters that offer lots of prep space. Here, also, there’s a dinette space and a nice mix of glass uppers and solid bottom cabinets. There’s a large pantry with shelves and cabinets, too. The dark flooring complements the gray subway tile backsplash; white cabinetry and the bank of casement windows bring in light that balances the dark tones.
Wow, is this laundry room oversized (in a good way), or what? Look at those shelves with the adorable scalloped trim. The overhead cabinets, closet rod, and double sinks can handle any kind of washing, ironing, or organizing.
The primary bedroom is large, with hardwood floors and a walk-in closet.
It has an ensuite bathroom with a walk-in shower, skylight, and tile accents. Check out that shower system!
The second bedroom is equally spacious, with windows on three sides and room for a sitting area on the other side of the room from the bed.
A hall bath has a tub/shower combo and features low-maintenance tiling, as well.
At the back of the house, off the den, is this sunroom that’s perfect for get-togethers or just to chill out.
It overlooks the fenced-in backyard, which just begs for gardens, pathways, a puppy dog paradise, or anything else that sparks creativity. The property measures just over a quarter-acre.
