Grab your Solo cups and bathing suits. A West Roxbury home is calling for a summer of fun.

The red-roofed stucco mansion at 20 Salman St. is a six-bedroom, three-bath home built in 1984. Listed for $1,150,000 and tucked on a quiet residential street, the 3,013-square-foot home has every amenity needed for a vacation without a plane ticket.

“For West Roxbury, it’s unusual to have everything they have,” said Yuri Karukin of Boon Realty Advisors, who has the listing. “You don’t need to go on vacation.”

Don’t bother pulling out the lawnmower. The two-story home is set back behind pristine landscaping and a small rock wall. Inside, the home boasts massive chandeliers. The first floor features three bedrooms, a bathroom, and a billiards room with a wet bar. On the second floor, there’s a large, open kitchen with hardwood floors. The home also has a second kitchen area with a whole wall of floor-to-ceiling shelving cast in hot-pink lighting. It currently accommodates a table for at least 14 and sports a large-screen TV. In the listing photos, the table is lined with Solo cups.

The home also has a dining area, a formal living room with an expansive window, as well as a family room with sliders, vaulted ceilings, and skylights. A home office provides the perfect spot to get work done.


Step through the slides to the impeccably curated outdoor space, ideal for large gatherings with family and friends. Highlights include artificial grass and porcelain tile patio, a heated swimming pool, a hot tub, a sauna, and a shower. There’s also statuary, a koi pond, a covered outdoor TV area, and charcoal and gas grills. The square footage listed here does not include 500 square feet of bathhouse and cabana, according to the listing, and the home sits on 0.21 of an acre.

“This home was built for family and entertainment. The owners are Ukrainians, and they are entertainers. They used to own Russian restaurants and stores, so they’re very well known in the Russian community,” said Karukin. “It was built to host large parties and entertain family. It’s a place that everyone loves to come to.”

As of press time an offer had been accepted on the home.
