Something Old Is New Again: A Rejuvenated Single-Family in Davis Square

Posted by Residential Team on Monday, November 27th, 2017 at 11:55am.

A single-family on Hawthorne Street in Somerville is getting a new lease on life, thanks to the collaboration between The  Covelle and Cohen Greater Boston Real Estate Team at RE/MAX Leading Edge and renowned local real estate developer, Brian Lavelle. The house was owned by the same family for the past 50 years. Lavelle reimagined and rehabbed the property into a four-floor stunner.

Walking through the property, it’s clear that details mattered as much as the larger picture. A built-in wine rack and walk through pantry/bar/prep area will turn anyone into a proud host or hostess.

Similarly, a built-in bookcase wall adds style and variety to a sizable living room. A former heated porch was torn down, only to be built back up as a brand new farmhouse-style kitchen worthy of any HGTV star.

On the second floor, the master suite steals the show. Starting with the rainfall shower head and custom tile shower, the suite is a spacious retreat with its own heating and cooling zones, dual sink vanities, and roomy closets for wardrobes big and small. Two bedrooms on the third level offer attractive sloped ceilings and large windows. A finished lower level provides the perfect space for a home office or media room.

Just a few blocks from bustling Davis Square, Hawthorne Street is a quiet one-way lined with single and multi-family homes. Close to schools, shopping, and a busy dining and nightlife scene, the location of this property is ideal.
