Charming 3 bed NE colonial with farmers porch overlooking gorgeous manicured yard. High ceilings, hardwood flooring, first floor half bath and laundry room, ample windows, central heat & A/C. Many recent updates (see attached) including roof, systems and exterior painting. Large eat-in kitchen with views overlooking the yard. Generously sized bedrooms and recently refreshed second floor bathroom with skylight. Finished lower level & large basement storage area. A gardener's paradise awaits you with three unique (and flat) fenced-in yard areas and a patio accented with an ornate stone retaining wall. The house is tucked away from busy streets, yet conveniently located for commuting to Boston - a block from an MBTA bus stop (to Malden Center Station) and less than a mile from Oak Grove T Station. With its close proximity to Pine Banks Park (hiking trail, dog park, children's play area), Melrose Commons (playground) and Stone Zoo, the house offers easy access to local amenities.
