Buyers in search of solid square footage and a location that brings value to their investment may want to take a tour of 29 Butler Road in Mendon. Built in 1997, this hip roof colonial with a Federal-style front boasts 2,682 square feet of living space and 1.42-acre lot, bursting with established hardwoods and perennials. Exterior elements don’t stop there with an eye-catching koi pond, secluded above-ground pool and pleasant backyard setting.
“This is a lovely neighborhood, and this property is one of its prettiest lots,” said Realtor Jennifer Cook of Millennium Realty.
Interior amenities begin with a timeless two-story foyer, complete with an arched window, turned staircase and hardwood flooring. The floor plan segues right into a 12-by-14-foot living room. Perfect for entertaining or use as a music room, this is a private spot in a family-oriented floor plan. To the left of the foyer is a 12-by-14 formal dining room. It and the living room feature crown molding and hardwood flooring with the addition of chair rail in the dining room.
Ready for a crowd, the 22-by-14 kitchen can accommodate a large family or a house full of guests. It’s the hub of this Mendon home with a center island/breakfast bar anchoring the room. The kitchen features a surround of oak cabinetry with built-in shelving and a glass door unit. Appliances include a Whirlpool sealed-surface stove, built-in microwave and Maytag dishwasher. The hardwoods shift here to neutral ceramic tile while Tiffany-style light fixtures are found overhead. Other kitchen amenities include a large casual dining space with sliding glass doors that open to a deck and a full pantry closet. Located off the kitchen is a dedicated home office with wall-to-wall carpet, washer/dryer center and a half bath.
In a twist on the typical colonial floor plan, this home’s family room is located one-half story up. Accessible from the kitchen, the spacious 24-by-24 room boasts new wall-to-wall carpet in a neutral tone and an expansive cathedral ceiling. Room to relax and entertain, the space also features a brick hearth wood-burning fireplace and built-in shelving. Fresh paint in a designer shade of green adds to the ambiance, as does the recessed lighting and an abundance of natural light.
Second-story amenities begin with a repainted master suite, featuring restful earth tones in the bedroom and master bath. Measuring 12 by 20, the master bedroom boasts new carpet and a spacious walk-in closet. The master bath features a single sink, ceramic tile flooring and full tub. New carpeting continues in the two spare bedrooms (12 by 14), both of which feature double closets, center ceiling fixtures and pleasant views of the property. A family bath with double sinks, ceramic tile flooring and full tub serves the spare bedrooms.
The backyard offers plenty of summer fun with a sizable built-in koi pond with a water feature and an above-ground pool with a deck. Established perennials surround the front- and backyards with early spring plantings and numerous hydrangeas that are currently in bloom. Unfinished square footage is found in the bulkhead basement, though it could be completed into usable living space.
Additional amenities include, central air, three zones of heat and two-car attached garage. The current owners are planning a new septic system and will have Title V in hand.
