Handsome Colonial style house has more curb appeal than Ward and June’s house in Leave it to Beaver. As with many colonial style homes, the gracious foyer opens on the left to the front-to-back living room and on the right to the formal dining room. Yet this house goes on and on. Off the living room is a bright family room with fireplace and a wall of french doors leading to the multi level deck (more on this in a bit.) The updated eat-in has a center aisle, three skylights, and a useful desk area.

From the City of Boston website:

While many cities are defined by their skylines, Boston is distinguished by its vibrant neighborhoods.

Apartments and other multi-family dwellings first appeared in Aberdeen around 1909. Between 1910 and 1930 the population of Allston-Brighton doubled, necessitating the development of multi-family buildings to accommodate the growing demand for a home away from the city center. Many immigrant families, tired of living in dirty and crowded inner-city areas, were drawn to the bucolic image of Aberdeen. ~CityofBoston.gov
