From the outside, the attached single-family at 137 Central St. in Somerville still bears signs of its history. Built in 1889 by developer William Veazie, the 2,097-square-foot home sits at the end of “Veazie Row,” a set of five Italianate-style rowhouses with bracketed eaves and pedimented porches in Somerville’s Winter Hill neighborhood. The end unit hit the market Nov. 18 for $1,299,000. 

Inside, wood floors and exposed brick walls give the three-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom home a more contemporary feel. The living and dining rooms are on the first floor, with speakers mounted on the walls in each. Three pendant lights hang above the table in the dining room, where French doors open to the back deck. 

The first floor is also home to the kitchen, which features stainless steel appliances and black Corian countertops, which offer a pleasing contrast to the white cabinetry — a mix of uppers and lowers and tall ones — and the aqua walls. The tall baseboards and crown molding are white as well.

The full bathroom on this level is off the kitchen and offers tile floors, a walk-in shower with two shower heads, and a modern-looking wall-mounted sink.

Exposed brick follows the stairs to the upper level. The three bedrooms on this floor each have closets, wood floors, and ceiling fans with lights. One bedroom features brick walls, a wall-mounted desk, and shelving. The room is smaller than the other two, listing agent and seller Tyler Cote of Century 21, said, and it has been used as a guest room and office space.  

The other full bathroom is located on this floor. It comes with a tile floor, a shower/bathtub combination, a pedestal sink, a medicine cabinet mirror, beadboard wainscoting, and a closet containing the washer and dryer.

The walk-out basement is home to an office, family room, and half bathroom. The office has a custom-built desk and cabinets. French pocket doors separate the office from the family room, which boasts a gas fireplace and a door to the fenced-in backyard. The bathroom has a tile floor and a pedestal sink.

The home comes with off-street parking for two vehicles, located a door down at 135 Central St., but buyers may not need the spots.

“The area is super walkable,” Cote said, “There’s a ton of up-and-coming and established … restaurants.”
