You can’t miss the Victorian tucked away at 23 Trescott St. in Dorchester. This four-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom home boasts an exterior in an orange hue that sets it apart and gives the home a welcoming warmth.
The house, which features black and cream trim, was built around 1900 and is on the market for $1,089,000.
A purple front door invites guests out of the tree-lined street and into a spacious lobby with hardwood floors and original stained glass.
The dining room, directly beside the fireplace, features a gas fireplace, crystal chandelier and floor-to-ceiling windows, bathing the room in warmth and light.
The living room, located just off the dining room, has large windows, a chandelier, recessed lighting and a slider to a terrace.
The dining area flows into a kitchen featuring stainless steel appliances, open shelving, crown molding, cabinetry with glass fronts, an island with seating, and exposed brickwork.
The second floor features three bedrooms with crown moldings, including a two-piece suite, and a full bathroom with a single vanity, tub/shower combination, and black and white flooring.
The top floor of the home offers a sunny canvas that offers a master suite with a full bath. It is currently converted into a home office and gym.
But the real show stopper at this level is the bridge, which creates a treetop respite in the city’s Savin Hill neighborhood.
The basement is unfinished. Outside, the house includes garden beds, a brick patio and a terrace.
