895 Hammond St. may have been built in 1948, but you’d never guess it looking at this contemporary renovation. 

The two-year revamp took the Chestnut Hill home down to the studs and redesigned it with the addition of an upper level. Listed for $3,889,000, the property boasts details like a floating staircase, custom cabinets and millwork, and 6-inch white oak flooring. The home measures 5,500 square feet on 0.45 of an acre, with seven bedrooms, five full bathrooms, and one half bathroom. Julie Holenport and Tyrone Sayers of Coldwell Banker Realty-South End have the listing.

On the main level, the living room features a gas fireplace with a custom floor-to-ceiling tile surround, as well as a trio of skylights. The adjacent dining room shows off a tray ceiling. Through the butler’s pantry — with navy cabinetry, brushed brass fixtures, and a beverage center — is the kitchen. This space includes custom maple cabinetry, quartz counters, a custom tile backsplash, double wall ovens, two dishwashers, a built-in banquette and table, and access to a mahogany deck. An attached two-car garage with a mudroom, three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and the half bathroom round out this level.

A bathroom, laundry room, two bedrooms, and the owner’s suite are upstairs.  In the latter, custom barn doors in the bedroom lead to a spacious walk-in closet. The bathroom offers double vanities, a freestanding bathtub, and a walk-in shower.

Down on the lower level, a family room with a wood-burning fireplace is joined by a built-in wet bar, a bedroom, full bathroom, two bonus rooms that can be used as a home office or gym, a second laundry room, and walk-out access to the landscaped yard. The home’s gated lot is across the street from Robert T. Lynch Municipal Golf Course.
