Simply put, the nearly 30-year-old box Colonial on Concord Avenue which was home to the late Anne Allen is an example of good taste in design and dimensions, a house built to impress through traditional residential architecture. There are no grand gestures or sweeping over-the-top statements that too many new construction attempts to do. There is symmetry both in the exterior – the six over six windows align, main entry centered, a balanced rear extension which is actually a separate wing  – and the interior where rooms are square with high ceilings, the kitchen doesn’t overpower the ground floor, details are refine. This is a Belmont classic, joining the “White House” on Alexander as wonderful residences in the Town of Homes.
