Belmont, MA, US
500 Pleasant Street
If you love the character and grandeur of a historic Second Empire home, with its beautiful slate and copper mansard roof, but wish it had the updates that you’d find in newly built homes, you will love 500 Pleasant. After thirty three years of loving this historic home, the current owners of the George P. Walcott House, circa 1871, have wonderfully reimagined and updated it for today’s lifestyle. Upon entering the gracious foyer, you peek ahead to the re-invented great room, where walls were removed to create a fabulous open concept chef’s kitchen, eating area and family room. A large island is the centerpiece to this space, and Subzero and Wolf appliances are the tools to help you create culinary masterpieces. Entertain in the bright living room or regal dining room. Upstairs is a large master suite, with spa-like bathroom and private deck, plus three more bedrooms and an office. A second master suite or recreation space occupies the third floor. The carriage house offers garage space and opportunity for more.
