Talk about a unique, eclectic home that took so much creative thought with such a colorful and whimsical decor like a piece of art. It truly has earned its nickname as the 'Barbie House' or 'Dollhouse.'
With wonderful views of the Boston skyline, welcome to 42 Spring Street, listed by the Carol Kelly Team at Compass Real Estate in the much sought after Spring Hill neighborhood of Somerville. The inside truly feels like a magical movie set in some dreamy way, while the outside is filled with perennial gardens, flowering trees, a patio, a sun porch, and a front porch all perched up on a hill. It feels very English countryside.
Compass Real Estate says the natural light is phenomenal in this home that touts decorative moldings, built-in floor-to-ceiling bookshelves, and nearly 10-foot ceilings. It has a total of nine rooms that are comprised of three bedrooms and two bathrooms, a fireplace, and wait until you see the chef's kitchen.
Clearly, this home works in this extremely happening and hip area just minutes from tons of restaurants and shops, and steps from the green line for easy access to everything. So are you ready to check out this $1,475,000 million home? It's so much fun, and really is a work of art no matter what room you're in, painted in glossy and bright shades of pink, coral, purple, blues, and yellows. The property was actually built in 1860, so it's a Greek revival antique historic cottage.
