Among the new properties appearing for sale in Boston this autumn is the residence of Red Sox Hall-of-Famer Pedro Martinez. The Beantown baseball legend lobbed the fetching 1990s Colonial onto the open market in the first week of November. The three-level house is priced at $1.995 million.
Located in the sleepy bedroom community of Winchester, the house is well-positioned: it sits on a 1.03-acre tree-dotted hillside niche west of the town proper. Inside, the home is bright and gregarious, with warm beige tones, golden plank hardwood, white ceilings, lots of glass, wood-framed windows, and interior French doors for invitational transitions. The living room’s green stone fireplace and hearth step brings a welcome addition of texture and cool toning to the shared spaces.
The home’s triple-decker layout packs in 5,122 sq. ft. of floor space into the residence, and two guest bedrooms on the upper level bring the count to five, with four baths in support; the master is located on the second floor, and boasts a classically-Northeast red brick fireplace. The basement has been finished as a specialty space — a gym and beauty salon — while the dining room features a cottagey appeal by way of pine plank floors and country-style cabinetry.
An attic office or creative workspace with a skylight rounds out the interior amenities. A deck overlooking the bucolic backyard is the home’s primary outdoor amenity and warm-weather destination.
