Lo­ca­tion key for Need­ham home

Boston Herald - - HOME SMART - By MIRIAM SCHWARTZ

Wait­ing for you in the kind of neigh­bor­hood you’re used to see­ing on a feel-good TV show, the adorable bun­ga­low-style Cape Cod home with dormer win­dow at 28 Thorpe Road in Need­ham in­stantly charms you from the curb.

Tucked into an es­tab­lished street flanked by ev­er­greens and ma­ture trees, the home, built in 1924, has sev­eral pe­riod de­tails, and many modern up­dates.

In ad­di­tion to the warm and wel­com­ing neigh­bor­hood, 28 Thorpe Road is lo­cated in an area of Need­ham that’s ab­so­lutely ideal.

Just a skip away from In­ter­state 95 and ac­ces­si­ble to the many tech and other busi­nesses head­quar­tered in Need­ham, the home is also lo­cated within walk­ing dis­tance of Trader Joe’s, Star­bucks, and lo­cal schools of the highly de­sir­able Mitchell School Dis­trict. Nearby on the other side of I-95, you’ll find Na­han­ton Park and Cut­ler Park Reser­va­tion. Of­fered at only $629,000, the home is a tremen­dous value for the Need­ham area.

With four bed­rooms and two bath­rooms over 1,625 square feet, the home, ren­o­vated in 1997, is spa­cious enough to be com­fort­able while keep­ing it cozy.

A cute front porch en­trance takes you into the liv­ing room, with hand­some, large fire­place, and a din­ing room with a beau­ti­ful built-in china cab­i­net. You’ll also find an of­fice over­look­ing the back­yard, the first bed­room, and the home’s up­dated, modern kitchen with lots of cab­i­net space. Up­stairs, the three other bed­rooms are roomy and per­fect for a new fam­ily, or a fam­ily that’s down­siz­ing but still

want­ing space to spread out.

Out­side, the gen­er­ous, level back­yard fea­tures tall, shady trees, gar­dens and room for out­door liv­ing and en­ter­tain­ing.

Don’t miss the open house hours to­mor­row from noon to 2 p.m.

To find out more about the home, con­tact Sandy Balzer Tobin at 781-8204720.
