Your 1st stop should be First Avenue in Old Bedford: #6: The "Mackenzie house". This spectacular large Victorian is set back from the street. Sitting on a lot totalling 23,819 sq feet, the house was built by Albert Shaffelburg for William MacKenzie (the Station Master in Bedford from 1871-1930). They simply don't make homes like this anymore. On the main floor: a formal living room with a working wood fireplace, family den w an electric fireplace insert, & bright sunroom. An adorable powder room + large dining room that can sit 13(+). The Hen-House designed kitchen makes you feel like you're in Nice France, with Viking appliances, a 6 burner gas range and large French Doors that open up into the garden. A laundry area/mud room w built in storage closets & walkout to the yard. Last but not least, an "outdoor living room" overlooking the Basin, perfect for a morning cup or nightcap. Upstairs, there are 4 bdrms, an updated 5 pc bathroom and walk in closet. The owners updated the heating system in 2015 (AC+heat), the gardens are manicured with something always in bloom. The perfect spot for entertaining, w views of the Basin, you can watch the fireworks or the ships rolling in from the comfort of your own home. (id:38326)
