On the Block

For sale: Bungalows in Wayland and Braintree

These cozy homes are convenient for commuters.

21 WOODLAND ROAD / WAYLAND

  • $399,000

  • SQUARE FOOTAGE 840

  • LOT SIZE 0.14 acre

  • BEDROOMS 2 BATHS 1

  • LAST SOLD FOR $230,000 in 2004

  • PROS Walk up side stairs of this 1930 bungalow to reach the main door, then step into the living room, where a gas fireplace with a tile surround foreshadows modernization efforts since 2005. Updates include a cook’s kitchen with butcher block counters, stainless appliances, and subway tiles. Bath updates maximized space: Medicine cabinet sections are set on spinners in a window over the sink — one side is a mirror, the other storage. Two small bedrooms are off the living room. An above-grade finished basement adds 153 square feet of living space. The patio would be great for gatherings. It’s a short walk to Dudley Pond and a convenient drive to the Mass. Pike. CONS Watch that step down from the kitchen.

  • PROS A stone farmer’s porch and manicured lawn give this 1917 bungalow welcoming charm. That charm continues in the cozy living room with fireplace.

The back door leads from the kitchen to a wood deck. Also on the first floor are two bedrooms and a full bath. The master is on the second floor, along with storage space. There’s a two-car garage. For commuters, the Holbrook/Randolph rail stop and Braintree’s Red Line station are less than 3 miles away. CONS The stairs to the second floor are steep.
