This antique-style home built in 1833 was once chopped into two condominiums, each taking a floor of the building located in a Lexington historic district. The current owners returned the property to one-family status in 2000, the result is a 2,518-square-foot home with four bedrooms, two updated full baths, wood floors, and a renovated kitchen.

Known as the John Beals House, the building faces busy Massachusetts Avenue but still offers a suburban feel with a fenced-in backyard, a new deck off the kitchen, and a second, more private patio. The front door opens to an office to the left and a living room on the right, including a fireplace. Both rooms flow into an open family room and dining room . The kitchen has wood cabinets, wood and ceramic tile floors, and recessed lighting, and features a cooking island with a stove, ceramic tile and quartz countertops.


There is a small laundry room off the kitchen that leads to a two-car garage with an unfinished loft. Two sets of stairs head to the second floor, which includes four bedrooms and a bath. The master bedroom is at the front of the house with the home’s second fireplace. The house is steps from the Minuteman Bikeway and walking trails at Arlington’s Great Meadows. Listing agent Judi Brosnan of William Raveis Real Estate plans an open house noon to 1 p.m. Sunday.
