Most of the green in this Cambridge Green home is at the front of its off-a-commons lot, but the bricked-up front elevation doesn’t make the most of that greenbelt view. Compact, the house hugs the back corner of the 1979-built subdivision, located off Kirby Dr. south of W. Holcombe. Listed yesterday, the hidden home carries an initial asking price of $445,000. The last time the property was on the market was back in 2000, a year after its remodel, when it sold at $339,000.
The roof’s front-to-back gable provides a vaulted interior for gloom-busting skylights and transoms. Double doors (above) open into a small foyer off the main living area. Glass doors (below) lead to a sun room shared with the master bedroom:
The 2,529-sq.-ft. home has 2 patios, including one off the dining room, accessible through a set of doors in the wall of full-height windows:
Much of the kitchen is devoted to storage, and there’s a walk-in pantry. A small wet bar (at left) adds yet more places to keep provisions.
Which door to choose? The breakfast area doubles as a portal to the side patio, the utility room, and a 2-car attached garage.
This front bedroom off the foyer is now being used as a study, and it appears to offer the interior’s only view of the greenbelt — plus bits of The Barclay, an older, multi-building condo community just north of the fence. The Berkshires on Brompton apartments rise behind the home.
The master bedroom also gets a vaulted ceiling, as well as 2 walk-in closets, and, through glass panel doors, that small sky-lit sun room:
But for the window, the soaker tub and outdoor seating form a conversational grouping:
The home’s third bedroom has a bay window:
This powder room is also the home’s second full bath:
Patio One is on the south side, where a neighboring home provides a window-free border:
Patio 2, beyond the master bathroom, includes 2 palm trees, a tuffet of landscaping, and some prime tub-watching opportunities:
There’s a little on-street parking at the curb and a driveway that runs behind the cluster of homes fronting the greenbelt. The subdivision has several groupings of homes on various commons. This home’s annual maintenance fee is $2,035.
