    Description

    Welcome to 228 Congress Avenue... a charming 3 bedroom home on one of the best street in Lansdowne. Congress Avenue has a wonderful neighborhood feel with well maintained homes. The wonderful architectural details make this house appealing inside and out. The exterior design will make you think you are in Normandy with the roof and window details. Enter into a welcoming hallway with a seating alcove and coat closet. The first floor includes a large living room with fireplace and built-in shelves and cabinets, dining room with built-in china cabinet, kitchen with brick arch accents, pantry/breakfast nook and a garden room with a view and access to backyard. The beautiful staircase leads to the second floor which has three ample sized bedrooms and an updated full bath. The house is bright and cheerful due to the many windows in each room, most of which are replacement windows which are efficient and easy to clean. Hardwood floors throughout with decorative ribbon trim on the first floor. Many improvements have been made in 2021 to benefit the new owner including fresh paint, new shower plumbing and fixtures, new bath vanity and plumbing, new kitchen sink and faucet, new circulator and auto water refill system on burner, new chimney liner (2019) and capping on the exterior facia and trim areas. Nice sized and private backyard with EP Henry paver patio. Walk-up attic with additional storage. Basement laundry and storage. Detached oversized garage and private driveway. Lansdowne offers great community events, art and music entertainment, a wonderful Farmer's Market and is easily accessible to the city via a quick train ride.
