On the Market: A Somerville Single-Family with a Hot Tub
You can enjoy it after selecting a bottle from your new wine cellar.
106 Fremont St., Somerville
Size: 1,210 square feet
Once in a while, the fickle real estate gods toss a boon out onto the enragingly expensive Boston estate market, and this blink-and-you’ll-miss-it Somerville single-family is it. A home minutes from Assembly Square, the Encore Boston Harbor and more, all for the cost of less than a condo basically anywhere else in the area, is enough of a reason to say “hallelujah.”
The current homeowner purchased the pad in 2010 and over the years rehabbed it from the ground up. Literally—from the new stucco foundation and granite stairs to the painted cedar clapboard siding and roof, along with new windows that rounded out a recent reno in 2019.
Inside, whip up miracles in the wide, bright kitchen with its hardwood floors and stainless steel appliances, which reflect the palette of the handsome granite countertops and tile backsplash. When it’s safe to have friends over again, parties in the adjoining dining room will spill out into the living room for after-dinner drinks by the gas fireplace ensconced in a wall of reclaimed wood. When the wine levels wind down, pop downstairs to the wine cellar for a few more bottles. For quieter moments, enjoy a morning coffee in the screened-in porch, which features broad windows that filter in plenty of light from the sunny street.
With a powder room for guests on the first floor by the kitchen and entry, the upstairs is a private getaway with two bedrooms and the full bath. Count sheep in the main bedroom with its deep closet, built-in drawers, and hardwood floors. A second bedroom boasts an accent wall of reclaimed wood. And now with all the hard renovation work—including replacing the furnace—done for you, all that’s left to do is kick back and relax. Which is pretty easy with a long soak in the hot tub, which fits at least four adults, on the new composite deck just off the main level. The fenced yard also features a screened-in patio complete with cable hookup so you can watch TV while you sizzle up some steaks at the grill. All in, this spot is one miracle that won’t be long on the market.
