Stepping into Happy Hollow is like arriving at an English country manor where the priorities for luxurious residential living are splendor, tranquility and charm. Of course, the reality is that this property is located on Rockwood St., in Brookline, not England, but isn't that considered the best of both worlds?
This elaborately restored mansion leaves virtually no desires unanswered. With nearly 9,000 square feet within 20 rooms, there is plenty of space to accommodate the many diverse interests and needs for residents, friends and family. Here is just a short glimpse of the many enticing amenities within this property: a gym, movie theatre, wood-burning stone pizza oven, 2,500 bottle wine cellar, five fireplaces, carriage house, four-car garage, parking for ten and a nearly one acre impeccable landscape which includes the infield grass from Fenway Park.
Realty opportunities such as this do not arise often in Brookline, however, what makes this 11 year-old property even more special is its unique and engaging blend of the home's historical charm and its modern elegant decor. Each spacious room not only displays the distinctive period architecture with sloping lines, elevated ceilings, archways, decorative windows and built-ins, but the complimentary embellishments and accessories dress the spaces with stylishness and grace that would look out of place in any other setting.
With only just a sampling of photos, readers can easily envision the tranquility and harmony depicted from not only its construction but the flowing textual accompaniments of patterned wallpaper and fabrics, warm hues, fluid curtains and durable, natural materials.
Even with these grand decorative gestures, Happy Hollow also presents a welcoming and extremely comfortable home for its residents. Its interior and exterior dimensions are large, but it communicates sentiments of hospitality, warmth and yes, coziness throughout each room.
There is no property that even comes close in similarity to this magnificent estate in the Brookline or Boston areas. Potential homebuyers have this one rare chance to seize this residential opportunity and a chance for a one-of-a-kind masterpiece.
