Turning on to Chestnut Street will take your breath away! This wide boulevard contains one of the finest & most cohesive collections of grand 19th century homes in the country. 38 Chestnut St, built by Revolutionary War officer, & successful merchant, Nathaniel West Sr, is a high-style Greek Revival townhouse with lovely original detail & a gracious, airy floor plan that lends itself well to modern living. A stately ionic portico and a set of doors surmounted by elegant leaded glass windows lead to the gracious entrance hall with sweeping grand staircase. Spacious living room boasts 2 fireplaces & floor-to-ceiling triple sash windows. The sunny dining room adds a 3rd working fireplace (imagine dinner by the fire!) The kitchen, mudroom, & bar have custom cabinets with loads of clever storage & work areas; wall of French doors leads to deck & back yard. Take the back or front stairs to the 2nd floor and you will find 3 large bedrooms, a full bath with separate water closet & a sunny family room with corner windows offering delightful views down Chestnut St. The 3rd floor offers 2-3 more bedrooms & a full bathroom. The partially finished attic is as crisp as can be, containing another full bathroom. Very clean and bright basement with direct outdoor access. Lovely backyard overlooking an English style church, off-street parking for two cars, and 2 zone central air complete this historic home. Living on Chestnut Street offers something rare today: a tight-knit community…with regular get-togethers, a private park, and a real sense of belonging. Minutes from the fun bustle of restaurants, shops, museums, and the train station---27 minutes to Boston!
