74 HARTFORD AVENUE EAST / MENDON
SQUARE FOOTAGE 1,916
LOT SIZE 2.13 acres
BEDROOMS 3 BATHS 2 full
LAST SOLD FOR $355,000 in 2003
PROS This 1992 Colonial’s country appeal hides a wilder side. At first blush, you have the eat-in kitchen with oak cabinets, stenciled vines, and walkout bay slider to the deck; the dining room with French doors and oak floors; and a fireplaced family room with recessed lighting. Above, there is a full bath, laundry with sink, and three good-size bedrooms, including a master that has two walk-in closets. In addition to all this, however, is a basement escape, a “man cave” that adds 700 square feet of living space, and, out back, a heated fenced-in pool with cabana, hot tub, waterfall, and beach volleyball court. CONS Although set back, the home is on a busy road.

PROS The finest of details and materials went into this 2002 home, from the elaborate gingerbread trim on the farmer’s porch to the custom millwork in the coffered ceilings, railings, and wainscot. French-country cabinetry frames high-end appliances in the fireplaced kitchen, which has a granite island, walk-in pantry, and breakfast area. The game room boasts an antique mahogany bar from England; an Italian-marble mantel and surround adorn a fireplace in the family room. The property includes a saltwater pool with waterfall, as well as patios, a built-in barbecue, and 13 acres of cranberry bog. CONS The downside of such privacy? The home is not close to a major highway.
