On the market for the first time since the original owners bought it over 45 years ago, unit 343 at 65 Grove St. offers the opportunity to own a spacious condo in the immaculately maintained Wellesley Green complex .
The 1,815 square foot unit has the largest floor plan available in the complex and offers serene views over the manicured grounds. The two bedroom, two bathroom unit has excellent storage and an office adjoining the living room provides a desirable private space for working from home. The unit also includes two notarized parking spaces in the underground garage.
Joanne Baron of The Shulkin Wilk Group / Compass is marketing the unit for $ 950,000.
Wellesley Green is located next to Fuller Brook Park and a two minute walk to the shops, restaurants, train and Wellesley Square public library.
The condo development was built in three phases from 1972 to 1974 and has 149 units spread over three four-story residential buildings on seven acres of land surrounding a central courtyard. There is also a pool and club room for residents.
Early one morning in December after a heavy snowfall, workers were out in force at the well-managed Wellesley Green condo complex. The sidewalks were cleared, the outdoor parking lots and the roadways were cleared of snow and a manager walked around the site to supervise the work. Wellesley Green’s on-site staff consists of an on-site manager, a building maintenance superintendent and building cleaning staff. The entrance to the caretaker’s house is open 24 hours a day.
The building’s glass doors open onto a huge four-story atrium. Open balconies overlook the lobby to create an airy and modern atmosphere in the building. The individual mailboxes of the residences are located in the vestibule of each building which has an elevator and a staircase to access each floor.
There are six units per floor.
Unit 343 is on the third floor of the quiet building and is sunny, spacious and ready to welcome owners to add a sophisticated and fresh decor to make it their own.
The front door opens into a hall with wooden floors which leads to a carpeted living room. There is an entrance to the kitchen on the left. A large closet in the foyer is one of the condo’s many generous storage spaces.
The living room measures 15 by almost 27 feet and has oversized glass doors leading out to a balcony with stunning views of the grounds. The dining room opens onto the living room and has wooden floors and a door to the outside hallway which serves as an emergency exit.
The kitchen is light and airy with white counters, wooden cabinets and tiled floors. There is a double stainless steel sink and appliances include Hotpoint double ovens and electric range, GE refrigerator and Kitchen Aid dishwasher. The washer and dryer are also located here. There is a door to the dining room.
The office is located next to the living room and includes a bay window with views of the field, a walk-in closet and a door to the rear hallway.
Both bedrooms are located off the hallway which has two large closets and a full bathroom. Both bedrooms have floor-to-ceiling windows with views of the landscaped gardens. The master bedroom measures nearly 12 feet by 17 feet and has two walk-in closets and a full bathroom. The second bedroom is roughly the same generous size and has two wardrobes.
