When you think of moving to Winchester, picture yourself in a home with room for everyone, where entertaining or just day-to-day living is almost effortless. Think of big backyards for playing, gardening, or relaxing at the end of the day. Envision picturesque strolls through tree-lined streets, past venerable, older homes to our Victorian downtown. With our latest listing at 7 Rangeley Road, fantasy becomes reality.
“Rangeley Park” as it was originally named, was a “romantically planned” residential park developed in 1875 by wealthy Boston lumber dealer, David Nelson Skillings. The park was “widely praised as a model to be imitated, not only in Boston but nationally as well.” Rangeley Park was known for its winding roads and open spaces and because of its central location within Winchester, it served the town as a public park and a residential community.
Today, the Rangeley neighborhood, just 2/10 mile from Winchester Center, retains much of its original character - winding roads, beautiful historic homes, and lovely landscapes at every turn. This unique neighborhood continues to provide its residents with a suburban “park” feel, amidst a center-of-town location. Stroll down to Winchester’s coffee shops and browse the weekend farmer’s market on the Town Common. Meet friends for dinner at one of our many quaint downtown restaurants. Catch the train, where Boston is just an easy, 12-minute ride away.
This sunny, 1936 colonial has seamlessly joined the best of the old with the new - hardwood floors and classic molding meet central AC, and a true cook's kitchen. Relax by the fire in the formal living room. Enjoy outdoor dining on the private back patio. Play games in the fenced yard shaded by trees. Entertain your guests in the open concept, gourmet kitchen. Keep life organized in the tiled mudroom and attached 2-car garage. There's space for everyone with four bedrooms, a sky-lit family room, and a finished lower level perfect for video games, home gym, or guests.
This amazing home has so much to offer, inside and out. Don't take our word for it, VIRTUALLY TOUR 7 Rangeley Road before you join us for the open house on Sunday, June 5th from 12:00 - 2:00! Move right in and enjoy Winchester just outside your door!
