33 Marion St., Unit 1, Medford
Here’s a green reason or two why buyers should consider this new town house: its location near Tufts Park and within walking distance of Ball Square Station, a Green Line stop the MBTA is slated to build. The home is also about a 10-minute walk from Tufts University.
The town house (one of two units) was built on an existing foundation. It all starts with a 22-foot-long farmer’s porch with a white railing and a rock accent wall. Inside, there’s the living room to the left, a stairway straight ahead, and a combined kitchen and dining area on the right.
The kitchen/dining area measures nearly 450 square feet and is a study on how to marry white and gray without making it look sterile. The raised-front cabinetry is white and extensive, but the countertops are white quartz with gray marbling. The island, which basks in the glow from two smoky-glass globe pendant lights, has a waterfall edge, seating for three, a microwave, cabinetry, and vertical millwork that lends visual interest and matches the wide-plank cherry floor that runs throughout the space. The kitchen/dining area also features natural wood open shelving, picture-frame wainscoting, crown molding, a gray-and-white penny tile backsplash, stainless-steel appliances (including a gas stove), a Sputnik light fixture over the table, recessed lighting, and a coffee/dry bar with a wine fridge.
Located down a short hallway, the living room offers picture-frame wainscotting, crown molding, recessed lighting, cherry flooring, and a slider to a private deck, patio, and fenced-in backyard.
A half bath completes this floor.
The stairs snake up to the second floor, which encompasses three bedrooms, two full baths, and a laundry closet that can accommodate full-size appliances.
The owner suite clocks in at 374 square feet, a hefty investment for those who pay the bills made to feel even more significant with a vaulted ceiling, a skylight, three windows, a wide-plank cherry floor, a ceiling fan, recessed lighting, and a 41-square-foot walk-in-closet, a second closet, and storage over the bathroom. That en-suite bath offers ceramic tile flooring in a playful pattern of various shades of gray, as well as modern wood cabinetry topped with quartz and dual sinks with black faucets. The shower sits behind a sliding black-framed door and is clad in ceramic and gray glass tile.
The other two bedrooms on this floor are 179 and 131 square feet. The bigger of the two has a window and a closet, while the smaller comes with a double-door closet and two windows. They share a bathroom with a single vanity topped with quartz, as well as recessed lighting, a window, and a shower-tub combo that needs a shower curtain but has a pretty gray and white ceramic tile surround. The flooring is ceramic tile.
The basement is finished and offers two column-free spaces totaling some 500 square feet and two substantial walk-in closets. The flooring is concrete with an epoxy finish. The town house comes with two heating and air-conditioning zones and two tandem parking spaces.
