Custom-built single-family in Southie good to go

There are a few ways to stop Boston-area homebuyers in their tracks and make them pay attention. All you have to do is put four bedrooms and a three-car heated garage into a single-family home in Southie.

Did we mention it’s practically brand new, too? Built in 2018, the custom-built single family — that’s right, it’s not a condominium — is all that and then some, all within walking distance of the most popular dining spots on West Broadway. It’s a run, don’t walk real estate situation.

The home bucks South Boston convention at nearly every turn. Despite fitting into the surrounding neighborhood perfectly, it was built from the ground up instead of converted from an older building. It boasts the aforementioned heated garage — no more hunting or saving parking spots — and endless storage.

There’s even a flat roof if you’d like to add a roof deck and take in the Boston skyline, and a cozy fenced patio area.

On the main level, a laid-back open layout joins kitchen, dining, and living spaces topped with 11-foot ceilings. The kitchen is modern, kitted out with quartz counters, decorative tile and stylish cabinetry (and lots of it).

Built-ins and an adjoining deck brighten up the living room, which flows nicely from a dining area that can easily seat 10.

There’s even a bedroom and full bath here, ideal for guests or converting into a home office.

Upstairs, you’ll find the master bedroom with a walk-in closet and en-suite bath, plus two other bedrooms, a bath and the laundry room that anyone who’s previously had to lug baskets of laundry up and down three flights of stairs will appreciate.

An open house is held by appointment from noon to 2 p.m Saturday and private showings following CDC guidelines are available. The sale of the home is represented by  Donna Charpentier with The Charpentier Team at Gibson Sotheby’s International Realty, 617-470-6603.
