Built only 18 years ago, this fantastic custom manor bordering the estate area offers many refreshingly details and a creative design that brings a charm and warmth where many homes of this size often deliver cooler, less personal settings. Its architectural integrity and originality is instantly evident in its majestic unique exterior fabrication and more detailed inside with handcrafted built-ins, vaulted ceilings, in-laid hardwood floors, French doors, columned entryways, decorative windows and cozy, intimate turret vignettes.
The first level offers five comfortably, inviting rooms, beginning with a lovely living room with a fireplace surrounded by an ornate mantel and a charming nook for an intimate seating area while two columns within an arched threshold provide a dramatic entry into the formal dining area. The family room provides a more relaxed setting but still displays many striking features with its cathedral ceiling, bow window engrave, a marble fireplace and access to the outdoor deck. The eat-in kitchen is as equally engaging and attractive as the other common rooms with its premier upgraded accessories of custom cabinets, granite surfaces and plenty of casual seating at the center island and the breakfast nook. A cozy library provides a final cozy, personal space on this floor.
The second level includes a luxurious master suite with a walk-in closet and full, deluxe private bath, four additional spacious bedrooms, three with cathedral ceilings and all with bonus closet and storage space, a laundry area and an friendly sitting room. There is also an exercise room and supplement storage in the basement.
This hidden gem in Chestnut Hill is nestled behind sturdy stone walls in a private, picturesque setting just a short walk to schools, transportation, the Brookline Reservoir and many houses of worship. The location is ideal, the grounds spectacular and the home, well, beautiful, restful and secure.
