At first glance, you might assume 60 Stearns St. is your standard Victorian, but there are more modern amenities behind that blue-shingled exterior than meets the eye.
According to the listing, the Cambridge property is a “net-zero,” passive home. These types of green properties produce at least as much renewable energy annually as they consume. The Stearns Street property features sought-after details (a shiplap entryway), as well as eco-friendly amenities (an electric vehicle-compatible carport in the backyard). Currier, Lane & Young of Compass put the home on the market with a $4,500,000 asking price on June 9.
Measuring 4,191 square feet on a 0.1-acre lot, the property offers five bedrooms, five full bathrooms, and one half bath. The interior is full of clean lines and minimalist flair, with a neutral color palette punctuated by wooden details throughout.
The 2020-build features a mudroom and family room on the first floor, as well as a kitchen with quartz countertops, stainless-steel appliances, and a waterfall-edge island. The primary suite — complete with its own deck — and two additional bedrooms make up the second floor. On the third floor, there’s a family room and a fourth bedroom with an en-suite bath.
Down on the finished lower level is a second family room that could be utilized as a fifth bedroom, as well as a full bath and an entertainment space with a wet bar boasting a marble backsplash.
