Built in 2001 and beautifully upgraded and maintained this Parsons Hill home is a stand out in a neighborhood of similarly styled homes. It has a prime location within the development with landscaping that enhances the privacy of the yard. The sellers spent many years caring for and improving the property and chose high quality materials, including authentic blue stone for the patio, handcrafted Spanish cedar shutters for the exterior windows and genuine granite stones for the impressive great room hearth.
The location lends itself to easy highway access and also an option for the commuter rail system in a town without many options for this type of home and neighborhood location.
It possesses many often desired and requested features including central air conditioning, wood floors, granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances. As well as a classic style with four bedrooms, two full and one half bath and a fabulous kitchen that flows into the spacious family room with vaulted ceilings, fireplace and dining area. The lower level game room or library is finished with custom bookcases. Additional unique features include the bespoke garden shed for the side yard, and an antique dresser customized for the guest bath vanity. Premium Wenge wood blinds and sewn-to-order Dupioni silk roman shades adorn the first floor windows, while extra-thick plantation shutters add refinement to the windows of all four bedrooms.
The home boasts established perennial gardens, with mature evergreens on all sides, and a boxwood hedge surrounding the patio. If landscaping seems daunting, you’ll be glad to know that the difficult part is complete and established ground cover in all the planting beds means less maintenance. A teak swing surrounded by climbing hydrangea creates a tranquil focal point in the backyard, while expertly placed elegant ceramic pots containing mature spruce, lend an estate feel to this extraordinarily landscaped property.
The owners have also made improvements that aren’t immediately apparent, including a sprinkler system, alarm system, termite protection program and electric dog fencing spanning the perimeter of the property. Capitalizing on the home’s ample storage spaces, they also installed extensive, customizable organizers in each of the closets on all three floors, full-length flooring to make the most of storage space in the attic and adjustable wood shelving in the garage.
The expansive public areas of the home are ideal for entertaining, while the private areas are warm, inviting and comfortable. In total, there are approximately 3,200 +/- square feet of expertly finished space.
