Located at 222 Franklin Street in Belchertown, Massachusetts, is a 1,920 square foot colonial with four bedrooms and two bathrooms that sits on just under 1 acre of land with a spacious fenced-in back yard.
One can enter through the driveway side door into the dine-in kitchen. The kitchen offers ample cabinet and counter space. The counter tops are granite. Sliders provide access to the newer 26’X14’ deck while illuminating the kitchen with natural light. There is recessed lighting in the kitchen, as well.
The accommodating living room is located adjacent to the kitchen and also boasts ample natural light as there is a large south facing picture window.
Also on the first floor is an office, a full bathroom, and one of this home’s four bedrooms. Low maintenance laminate flooring mimic the look of hardwood floors on the first floor.
There are pine floors in every room upstairs, including in the upstairs bathroom that boasts a jet tub and an overhead heat lamp.
Under a vaulted ceiling with two ceiling fans, the master bedroom is an expansive space with a walk-in closet. It also has direct access to the upstairs bathroom, which is also accessed through the main hallway.
The other two upstairs bedrooms are a good size and have ceiling fans, as well.
Both the forced hot-air furnace and hot water tank have been replaced in the last few years. The hot water tank is also large enough for that jet tub, and the furnace is set up for easy installation of central air.
This home is located about 10 minutes away from the Massachusetts Turnpike and about 10 to 15 minutes away from Amherst and the Five Colleges Area. It is also just a few miles away from Belchertown’s iconic town center, which is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
Every year, the town common is the site of an annual fair and parade. Belchertown is also one of the largest towns in the commonwealth in square miles with miles of trails and hundreds of acres of preserved land. The Quabbin Reservoir offers even more recreational opportunities and beautiful views.
