On The Market: 22 Saint John Street, Jamaica Plain

Though surrounded by other Victorian homes, this home is unique due to a blend of classic construction and thorough renovations.

A quiet street that is also centrally located just minutes from Jamaica Pond, the T, and surrounding shops and restaurants, Saint John is an idyllically tranquil setting. “It’s very desireable and rarely available,” says Arborview Realty listing agent Christan Iantosca. “It’s really ideal for someone who likes to walk around and be in the thick of the action.”

On a street lined with beautiful Victorian homes, Iantosca suggests that 22 Saint John is most likely an 1890s Queen Anne Victorian, though public record sites it at 1910. This grand home retains the charming feel of the period, while continual updates and a unique design separate it from some other layouts.

Unlike many Victorian homes that have more segmented floor plans, this home has a grand open first floor, with a foyer leading into a beautiful dining room; a formal living room, and wide open family room, as well as a state-of-the-art kitchen opening, with double doors that swing out onto a large mahogany deck. Though the home has incredible, classic mantles, details, and coloring, features including a high-end central air and cutting-edge appliances bring it into the 21st century.

This home is also ideal with the rest of the summer ahead, thanks to the darling wraparound porch and custom stone patio and fire pit in the backyard. With first showings later this week, this home is bound to be snapped up soon.
