Wonderful opportunity to get into the heart of Melrose at a great price! Set back on a, level 7,005 sq.ft. corner lot, this picturesque colonial is just steps from the historic downtown area (0.2 miles), parks and schools AND the Commuter Rail (0.5 miles), with a walkability score of 85 (very walkable!) as well as being on the MBTA bus line. Great condo alternative, but with privacy and a huge yard, plus tremendous expansion potential. Many updates have been made by the current owners, including new gas heating system and efficient indirect hot water tank in 2017, all-new gutters in 2016, restored hardwood floors, fully fenced yard and outdoor patio, and fresh paint in relaxing neutral shades throughout the home. Also features newer windows and insulation (2010), recessed lighting, first floor laundry, and off-street parking for 3 to 4 cars. Refrigerator, washer and dryer to remain as gifts.
