26 Greenleaf Avenue

Last week we had an opportunity to revisit 26 Greenleaf Avenue, asking $2,650,000 listed by Ann Griswold at Kelly Associates, on a quiet lane close to town referred to as “Bump Along”. This has intrigued us for quite a while  (and even more so now with a new price reduction) and let us show you why. THIS PROPERTY IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE/Kelly Associates.

Love the curb appeal of this 1931 colonial and how it is sited on 1.86 acres

The library with gorgeous paneling

The house has so much room  (5755 square feet and 7 bedrooms!) but once again it has something we love, perfectly sized rooms that are not too big or too small.  You walk into this home which is in super condition, and are met with a home with loads of character. The curved staircase and the ceiling beams all add to this charm.  There is great detail everywhere we looked. It took me a while to move on past the stunning lighting fixtures that run throughout this house and tie it together so well.

Oh how I wish I knew where the owners bought these

Variation on the main sconces that run throughout the house – upstairs landing

Looking into the living room from the family room

Family room-runs along the back of the house with french doors leading into the rooms and french doors leading outside

The kitchens has plenty of sunny space, a dining and sitting area


Love the glass pantry door – nice touch.

My dream –  a second refridgerator, freezer and of course, a wine refridgerator

When you get upstairs you are treated to loads of wonderful space for a family.  There are 7 bedrooms with common space for the kids or guests.  This could be so fun especially since there is also a great basement space.

Love how they worked this into the one bedroom. Wouldn’t you want to study back there?

The master has its own private enclave and is very warm and inviting.

Master Bath

We even noticed the nice touches on the baseboard covers

Then it is off through the most gorgeous mudroom I have ever seen. Beautiful paneled walls (love the color) and slate floors. There is more than enough room for all the gear in here.

Look at this screened in porch – amazing!!!

Of course what I love the most…..the pool

Check out all the detail. Another great door handle

If you would like to see this wonderful home on Bump Along, let us know.
