Fixer-Upper Friday: An Antique Colonial in Dedham
It comes with a detached two-car garage and a shed.
127 Oakdale Avenue, Dedham
Size: 2,262 square feet
Dedham’s stately antique homes are highly sought after for a variety of reasons. For one, they’re only a few minute’s drive from the city of Boston’s boundaries. They’re also incredibly beautiful in their own right.
This Colonial for sale in Dedham’s Oakdale neighborhood checks both of those boxes. Built in 1900, the more than 2,200-square-foot home is as spacious as it is grand. Living space abounds, from its airy living room and formal dining room to the eat-in kitchen. Upstairs, there are four bedrooms and two bathrooms, not to mention a finished walk-up attic with skylight windows. The yard is impressive, too, with its gated stone wall, mature trees, detached two-car garage, and potting shed.
Overall, the place just needs a little spiffing up—a new paint job here, some updated fixtures there. Mostly cosmetic fixes are in order, which isn’t so bad when you consider that the price tag is a mere $399,900. That’s $177 per square foot—significantly less than most homes in Greater Boston.
