44 Putnam Road Unit 44 kitchen
Updates to 44 Putnam Road, Unit 44 include a new custom kitchen. Jordan Staiger

44 Putnam Road, Unit 44, is less than a 10-minute walk to Assembly Row and Sylvester Baxter Riverfront Park, but it’s polished, updated look puts up an argument for staying home.

The property’s clean look is owed to its finishes, from the in-laid hardwood floors to the herringbone tile. The unit is on the market for $599,000.

Measuring 1,341 square feet, the property offers two bedrooms, one full bathroom, and one fireplace. Cobalt blue walls in the dining room offer a striking contrast to the white built-in cabinets and crown molding. The adjoining kitchen features black granite counters, a Carrara marble backsplash, a butler’s pantry, a 36-inch sink, stainless-steel appliances, and white Shaker cabinets. Custom sliding barn doors open to the stacked laundry.

Sunlight streams into the rear office/guest room, thanks to series of windows along the back wall. Enjoy the sunshine from the window seat or head down to the fenced-in patio when the weather warms.
