Boston MA Colonial Homes

The Colonial home is one of the most popular styles of home in the United States. The Colonial style evolved from European influences, which started in the 1600s. Many colonists emigrated from Europe and brought those influences with them. Over time the Colonial style became distinct, recognizable for its use of geometry, and different regions of the United States added their own tweaks to provide relief from the climate.

Regardless of the size of the home, Colonial-style homes share several characteristics.

  • A symmetrical, square shape
  • A central door
  • Paired chimneys
  • Medium pitched roof
  • Straight lines of windows on the first and second floor
  • Often a decorative crown above the door and flattened columns to either side of it
  • The door leads to an entryway with stairway and hall aligned along the center of the house and all rooms branch off of these

Come see one of the biggest homes in Mattapan with enough room to invite the whole family over to enjoy Thanksgiving dinner and other holiday activities. Imagine inviting the in-laws over and forgetting that they are even there or giving the kids their own space. This home features garage big enough to fit a boat and a vehicle. The owner calls it a driveway but I call it a parking lot. Outside is the ultimate entertainment area with enough space for fire pit, grilling space and more. A short walk for access to public transportation . Don't miss the opportunity to experience this home and make it your own.
