The possibilities are endless at 4 Melville Park, where the Merrihew Manor stands as an iconic property in Dorchester. Perched on a quiet tree-lined street with park views, this single-family style home retains charming historic details while offering fully updated and modernized living spaces. This stunning 1883 Queen Anne Farmhouse-style property includes the 3,800 square foot main house and the 1,800 square foot Carriage House on a 16,000 square foot lot. Creating an impressive impact from the street, the home welcomes with an elegantly long driveway, spacious perennial-lined garden framed by a grand front porch.

Truly a home for entertaining, the main house welcomes guests into a spacious main foyer which opens to a warm living room with original oak woodwork details, 9 foot high ceilings and gas fireplace. The formal dining room with lovely bowed windows, complemented by a wood fireplace, serves as an ideal setting for gatherings and connects to a brand new kitchen featuring Sub Zero Fridge, Thermador Range, Quartz counters, and bespoke cabinetry. Just beyond the light filled kitchen and mudroom (with a dog bath station!) is the tranquil backyard and private parking area. Ascending to the second floor of the home unveils the primary ensuite, boasting a walk-in closet, private office, and new designer bath. Also on this floor, two additional spacious bedrooms with huge closets and full bath.

The additional 1,800 square foot 1 bed +, 2 bath Carriage house is located at the rear of the lot and includes a huge garage and basement.
