285 Cornell Street, Roslindale

Take in sunset views in this spacious, sun-filled corner-lot Colonial in Roslindale's Parkway. Spread out in four-plus bedrooms and 1.5 baths complemented by a skylit third floor with studio and library. The most winning feature of the house: on the main level, a skylight, south-facing 200 sq ft den with wood-burning fireplace, vaulted ceiling and custom cabinetry. The entire first floor calls for entertaining: the den adjoins to both a living room and an open dining room and kitchen. The dining room is graced by pocket doors. The well appointed kitchen offers stainless steel appliances, granite counters, and a breakfast bar and pantry. On the second level, convert two adjoining rooms for a master bedroom. Old growth trees grace the terraced rear yard and mature gardens—with curb cut in place. The obsessively tended grounds and gardens boast blueberry bushes and grape vines; dogwoods, a cherry tree and a Japanese maple; and an array of perennials, from rhododendra to daylillies. (High-efficiency systems and windows.) Under a mile to both Roslindale Village and West Roxbury's Centre Street, including two commuter stations.
