Taking in the view from a Quincy bungalow
This expanded bungalow ignores the street and instead offers stunning views of Quincy Bay and downtown Boston from a screened-in deck and the windows on the back side of the house. In Quincy’s Forbes Hill, the house sits on a sloping 17,000-square-foot lot, space enough for a side yard, three-car driveway, and a Gunite pool. The updated kitchen is in the front of the house and has dark granite countertops, white cabinets, recessed lighting, breakfast counter, and a sitting area. Banks of windows provide natural light.
The large dining room has built-in china cabinets, a plate rail near the ceiling, and again those great views. Adjacent is a spacious living room with gas fireplace, dark ceiling beams and plate rail. Both rooms are painted mint green. A full bath with a shower and three bedrooms, with tall ceilings, crown molding, and closets, complete the first floor. One small bedroom is now used as an office.
The expanded second floor - a full dormer was added - is a very large master suite. A king-size bed with an oak headboard and nightstands seems small in the space. With six rectangular windows the bedroom has the best views. The bath, which has maroon accents, contains a tub with a shower and two sinks. A walk-in closet holds a laundry hookup.
