Needham Homefront: Charm meets updates in stately colonial

A beloved home on the market for the first time in 24 years, the classic center entrance colonial sited at 57 Parkinson St. showcases a seamless blend of timeless elegance and contemporary appeal. Its more than 4,000-square-foot living area offers original details, thoughtful updates, and a warm charm destined to appeal to the next family ready call it home.

Debbie Cerra of Louise Condon Realty is marketing this four-bedroom, three-full, one-half bath for $1,399,000.

Set on a quiet street in a desirable in-town location, this light gray clapboard home with slate gray shutters and antique white trim built in 1900 conveys a welcoming curb appeal. A freshly clipped lawn, decorative shrubbery and plantings, and rhododendrons surround a bluestone walkway. Colorful annuals perched in window boxes flank the stone and granite front steps that lie underneath the sunburst portico entrance.

Inside the home, a den opens to the right, featuring a built-in china cabinet and egg and dart crown molding.

Next to the den, the formal dining room hosts family occasions underneath a divided picture window. Abutting it, the updated eat-in kitchen features cherry cabinets, Corian counters, tiled backsplash and breakfast bar – all bathed in sunlight from a skylight. Stainless steel appliances include a Jenn Air four-burner gas range and oven, GE Profile refrigerator and KitchenAid dishwasher.

From the kitchen, a small vestibule provides access to the lengthy patio, quaint gardens and manicured landscape of the backyard.

A pantry and half-bath flank the step-down entry into the generous family room. Featuring beamed ceilings, built-ins, and a wood-burning fireplace, this warm, inviting space expands into the gracious living room via French doors. This effortless combination of common areas creates an expansive front-to-back setting for entertaining guests.

The living room features both a second traditional wood-burning fireplace and another set of French doors that open to the enchanting four-season sunroom. Bathed in sunlight from eight windows and transoms, it also features radiant-heated floors and a sitting area.

Back at the foyer, the front staircase leads to a wide, second-floor landing and its light hardwoods. Ahead, the family bath is decked out in black and white diamond-design tile, marble vanity and a tub/shower combination. A small laundry room abuts it.

The first guest bedroom at the back of the home enjoys plentiful sunlight. The two larger front bedrooms share a walk-through closet fit with a bureau and shelving. Both bedrooms have additional closets. With a nod to the extensive original detailing, all the closets are solid core-five panel design with unique brass knob fittings.

The private, king-size master bedroom is a quiet place, home to a lovely marble wood-burning fireplace and vaulted ceiling. There’s ample storage in the large walk-in closet fit with systems. In the adjacent master bath, an antique double vanity complements the Jacuzzi tub and oversized frameless shower. Crisp white subway tile and black and white floor tile provide refreshing accents.

The lower level includes an office, full bath, storage and a workstation. But it’s the home entertainment mecca that makes this level unique. Saloon doors open to a full-size, classic cherry wood bar with granite counters stretches around to set six people. Experience full service with a wine refrigerator and beer on tap within this fully outfitted wet bar setting. Play a game of pool or cards in the adjacent recreation space.

The home features a detached two-car garage, central a/c and gas systems.

New Stand Mixer Colors
For those who find inspiration in bringing new and trending colors into the kitchen, there are three new matte finishes for the KitchenAid Artisan® 5 Quart stand mixer that enliven countertops in very different ways. Black Violet features a deep purple hue, a more indulgent and velvety alternative to the brighter purple stand mixer colors currently available. The new Ink Blue shade, inspired by classic ink blue glaze on white bone china tableware, offers a softer take on Matte Black, while still maintaining a neutral tone. Milkshake adds warm-toned, neutral option to the brand’s existing lineup of natural and off-white offerings. Artisan® Series 5 Quart stand mixers in the new colors are available now at a suggested retail price of $429.99.

Vegetable Sheet Cutter attachment
For those looking to eat more healthfully or simply expand their kitchen repertoire, gift givers should consider the new KitchenAid® Vegetable Sheet Cutter attachment for the essential Stand Mixer. The easy-to-use attachment cuts fruits and vegetables into thin sheets for making fresh, alternative versions of everyday dishes. Cooks can make substitutions for pasta and wraps, or reinvent snacks and sweet dishes, by creating sheets of zucchini, sweet potatoes, apples, cucumbers and other fruits and vegetables. Two blades allow for making thinner or thicker sheets, depending on preference or recipe, and premium metal construction provides durable, long lasting performance.

The KitchenAid® Vegetable Sheet Cutter is packed and organized inside its own case, designed for easy access and simple storage. Both blades, as well as a cucumber and zucchini adaptor, skewer and food holder, are dishwasher safe on the top rack. The Vegetable Sheet Cutter attachment is available now at a suggested retail price of $129.99.

Fresh Prep Slicer/Shredder Attachment
Holiday multi-tasking in the kitchen is made far easier with the new Fresh Prep Slicer/Shredder Attachment for the stand mixer. Designed to take the work out of adding freshly sliced or shredded ingredients to salads, entrees and other dishes, the versatile attachment has three quick-change blades that can handle everything from slicing cucumbers to shredding cheeses or vegetables, saving significant time with basic tasks. A 2-in-1 food pusher provides ideal slicing performance for both large and small diameter fruits and vegetables, from cucumbers to celery. The attachment is packed and organized inside a case designed for easy access and simple storage. The blades and food pusher are dishwasher safe for easy cleanup; the main body can be hand washed. The Fresh Prep Slicer/Shredder attachment is scheduled for availability in April at a suggested retail price of $64.99.

Wood and Poly Cutting Boards
Artfully designed and made from high quality materials, new wood cutting boards from KitchenAid are a practical and attractive addition to any kitchen countertop this holiday season. Available in three premium wood finishes, the double-sided board features one flat side with measure marks for more precise preparations while the second side boasts a drain-away tray to allow juices, gravy and liquids to flow away from the cutting surface. Available in 15mm thick Bamboo, 25mm thick Acacia and 25mm thick Walnut, the boards are extremely durable, yet gentle on knives to prevent dulling of blades.

The brand’s new poly cutting board, more simply designed but equally versatile, is ideal for quick and easy cutting, chopping or prepping. Constructed of solid polymer material, the doubled-sided board is warp-free, heat-resistant and features measure marks for precise tasks. It is also dishwasher safe making clean-up very easy. New non-slip poly cutting board options are also available and include all the premium features of the poly cutting board with the addition of a non-slip design system and drain-away tray on one side, allowing juices to flow away from the cutting space. Both boards are also dishwasher safe for hassle free cleaning.

Wood cutting boards are available in sizes 8″x11″, 11″x14″, 12″x”18, with a suggested retail price of $19.99 – $59.99 based on material and size. Poly cutting boards are offered in 8″x11″ and 11″x14″ in White with suggested retail prices of $12.99 to $19.99. Non-slip poly boards are available in 8″x11″ and 11″x14″ in Tangerine, Ice Blue, Signature Red and Aqua Sky with suggested retail prices of $14.99, $29.99 and a 2-pack for $29.99.

Since the introduction of its legendary stand mixer in 1919 and first dishwasher in 1949, KitchenAid has built on the legacy of these icons to create a complete line of products designed for cooks.  Today, the KitchenAid® brand offers virtually every essential for the well-equipped kitchen with a collection that includes everything from countertop appliances to cookware, ranges to refrigerators, and whisks to wine cellars.  Cook for the Cure®, the brand’s partnership with Susan G. Komen®, is now in its 15th year and has raised over $10.7 million to help find a cure for breast cancer.  To learn more, visit KitchenAid.com or join us at Facebook.com/KitchenAid and Twitter.com/KitchenAidUSA.

Experience the interactive Multichannel News Release here: https://www.multivu.com/players/English/8013854-coffee-tools-from-kitchenaid/

Cold Brew Coffee Maker
For those who enjoy an icy cup of cold brew coffee, the new KitchenAid Cold Brew Coffee Maker is the perfect gift to get them brewing at home. The thoughtful and streamlined design allows for easy home brewing in three simple steps: grind, brew and pour. The model’s no heat brewing method steeps coarsely ground coffee in cold water for 12-24 hours, resulting in a smooth and balanced flavor that can be enjoyed all day. Capable of making up to 28 ounces of concentrate at once (or approximately 14 average single servings), the resulting brew is best enjoyed by combining 2 ounces of coffee concentrate with ice and the option of milk and sweeteners.

Designed with a modern glass brew jar and sleek stainless steel tap, the cold brew coffee maker serves as a stylish addition to any kitchen countertop, while the compact footprint provides an ideal fit for a refrigerator shelf or door for easy dispensing straight from the refrigerator. A reusable stainless steel steeper allows for custom beverage brewing, aided by a fill guideline that takes the guesswork out of the process. The easy to clean glass and stainless components help to preserve taste in combination with a fitted lid that ensures freshness of the coffee concentrate. The KitchenAid® Cold Brew Coffee Maker is available now in stainless steel at a suggested retail price of $129.99.

Precision Pour Over Kettle and Cone
Featuring a polished stainless steel design and elegant gooseneck spout, the KitchenAid stove top kettle makes a stylish gift for loved ones who enjoy a meticulously made pour over beverage. A one liter capacity and three unique flow rate settings offer precise pour control for a perfect at-home custom pour, every time. The stovetop kettle also includes a brew range thermometer displayed on the lid to keep track of the water temperature while pouring. It is compatible with gas, electric and induction stove tops. The KitchenAid® Precision Kettle will be available at a suggested retail price of $99.99.

Precision Press
On the hunt for the perfect gift for a coffee perfectionist in your life?  Look no further than the KitchenAid® Precision Press Coffee Maker. Delivering the exceptional flavor of traditional French press coffee through a simplified brew process, this coffee maker helps optimize flavor without requiring the skills of a barista. Equipped with an integrated scale, the Precision Press refines the class brew method by measuring coffee and water by weight instead of volume. The timer and digital display incorporated into the handle provide a quick and convenient read of steep time. Designed with dual stainless steel construction, the 30-ounce carafe provides long-lasting heat retention. The cordless design allows for easy cleaning and reduced countertop clutter. The Precision Press Coffee Maker is available now at a suggested retail price of $149.99.

Burr Grinder
For those looking to take home brewing to the ultimate level, a Burr Grinder is a great way to give them complete customization of their morning coffee. The KitchenAid Burr Grinder features a sleek, die-cast metal design and 15 grind settings for French press, pour-over, drip coffee, espresso and anything in between. The glass bean hopper holds up to 7 ounces of grinds, while stainless steel cutting burrs offer both durability and powerful performance. The Burr Grinder is available now in Contour Silver, Empire Red and Onyx Black with a suggested retail price of $299.99.
