Melrose house description

***Calendar is always up to date.***

Beautiful house in quiet, residential neighborhood. Luxury appointments, designer kitchen and upscale furniture throughout, and tiled baths with granite vanities. Large walk-in closets. Fenced in yard and three-car driveway. Air conditioned.

*1st Floor: LARGE luxury kitchen with granite, Jenn Air stainless appliances, and complimentary food staples (sugar, oil, flour, coffee beans & Grind & Brew Cuisinart, etc.). Large Victorian foyer. 20 FT x 20 FT deck off kitchen with gas grill and herb garden. Living room with large sectional couch. Full bath off kitchen w/shower.

*2nd Floor: 3 bedrooms each with a queen bed, laundry (washer & dryer), and full bath w/tub.

*Attic: Finished, carpeted bedroom with a double futon and queen futon.

*Basement: Large finished room with large sectional couch and huge walk in closet.

Convenient/close to Boston: 15 minutes by car. 3 minute walk to commuter rail, 2 minute walk to bus, 15 minute walk (3 minute drive) to Oak Grove MBTA train station (15 minute train ride into Boston). See more information at www.MBTA.com.

Melrose is a safe, quiet, town with beautiful homes. The Victorian downtown/Main St area is 3 blocks away and has a supermarket, drug store, and great restaurants. Melrose is one of the most sought-after towns in MA, and its downtown receives INCREDIBLE praise from visitors to this house.

To keep the cleaning fee low, we ask that tenants assist with 3 loads of laundry in the high-capacity washing machine and dryer before leaving. This way the laundry will not delay the cleaning woman. This simply involves completing the 1st load and leaving it on the bed (no folding required), leaving the 2nd load in the dryer and the 3rd load in the washer. The washing machine has a 30-minute quick cycle setting, thus it will only take an hour.

Check in is after 3:00 pm. Check out is by 11:00 am. Exceptions can be made, but must be confirmed with the owner.
