On The Market: 173 Central Avenue, Milton

A converted carriage house, an indoor pool, and an expansive house with 11 bedrooms full of traditional details are just the beginning of what this property has to offer.

In Boston, transportation is always a factor when searching for a property, and this house makes it all easy. “To be in Milton and still be able to be [nearby so many] amenities gives you a perfect blend of suburban and urban walkability,” says Gibson Sotheby’s listing agent Ralph Smith.

The Francis Russell Hart Home is a charming example of English Tudor Revival architecture with paneled walls and stunning woodwork, all showing the beautiful craftsmanship. With nine fireplaces, period detail throughout, and a separate guest suite on the third floor, this home has incredible character. Though the property has been meticulously maintained, the master suite leaves the opportunity to customize the master suite, or relish in fantastic old world charm.

This dramatically traditional home is paired with a lively, fun carriage house. “The restoration of the carriage house makes this a playground for kids and adults, alike,” Smith says. With repurposed horse stables that have been turned into a media room and billiard room, as well as a two-bed, one-bath suite above, the space adds a great deal of living area to the property. And don’t forget about the indoor pool. “In our short New England season, the difference between an outdoor and an indoor pool makes all the difference,” Smith points out.
