If you’ve ever dreamed about channeling your inner Monet in a studio space all your own, this Watertown home may help make that a reality.

The three-bedroom, one-bath 1930s Colonial comes with a separate 400-square-foot studio. The two-building property has hit the market at $845,000.

Scott Driscoll at Redfin has listed the property, 591 Main St. The artist’s studio is around back, offering a haven for creativity away from the day-to-day interruptions in the main house. The studio has 16-foothigh ceilings, a loft accessible by ladder, water, and heat (gas).

The main attraction on the property, however, is the 1,477-square-foot main house. The cheery yellow home greets passersby with the ubiquitous white picket fence. Inside, gleaming oak flooring runs throughout most of the level, and to the left off the foyer, there is a living room with a wood-burning fireplace flanked by built-ins with glass-front doors.

The studio faces north, but the sunroom off the living room looks to the south. The dining room, located on the other side of the living room, comes with chair rail molding, recessed lights, a built-in china cabinet, three windows, and a slider to the backyard of the 0.12-acre lot.

In the adjoining kitchen, natural light from numerous windows shines on white cabinets with black hardware, the appliances are a mix of stainless steel and white, and a door-less pantry offers additional storage. There’s a door to the backyard off the kitchen as well.


All of the home’s bedrooms are on the second floor and have hardwood floors. They share the level with an office and a full bath with a pedestal sink, a tile floor, and a tub/shower combination with a curtain. This level provides access to an unfinished-but-insulated walk-up attic.

The home was built in the 1930s, but it has solar panels and a charging station for an electric vehicle.
