The sizeable and impeccably-landscaped three quarters of an acre knoll on this vintage 84 year-old Wellesley Farms colonial is the perfect introduction to its interior accommodations. This Royal Barry Wills home boasts all the classic architectural features and details one would expect from its era and original designer and so much more thanks to a comprehensive $600,000 renovation.
Three levels and 3,724 square feet of living space offer versatile and flexible accommodations for a growing family. Its fluid floor plan and distinctive appointments, such as four fireplaces and numerous built-ins also enhance its resourceful blueprint and architectural charm. The 24 x 14 square foot fireplaced living room with custom floor-to-ceiling cabinetry and 16 x 13 square foot intimate dining area provide the ideal settings for formal entertaining. The 31 x 13 square foot updated eat-in kitchen has been well equipped with premier culinary accessories, such as high-end cabinetry, a center island, stainless steel appliances and a wet bar and seamlessly opens into a 23 x 12 square foot fireplaced family room. A 23 x 16 square foot study with a floor-to-ceiling wood fireplace and lovely screened-in porch with exposed brick provide wonderful venues for personal reflection or relaxed occasions.
A 23 x 16 expansive square foot master suite with a fireplace, cathedral ceiling, walk-in closet and private bath and three additional bedrooms at 8 x 15, 11 x 13 and 12 x 13 square feet are located on the second level while the third floor stretches its living accommodations and privacy options with a 13 x 13 square foot bedroom, a 12 x 12 square foot bonus room and half bath. This story would also make an ideal guest, au-pair or teenager suite.
While residents will thoroughly enjoy the comfortable and stunning indoor accommodations of this home, an oversized stone patio, many oversized windows and strategic room designs take full advantage of the picturesque views on its three-quarters-of-an-acre lot. Whether indoors or out, this eclectic and unique home provides the perfect blend of the past and the present as a welcoming retreat that will be enjoyed and admired by its new residents and their guests for "hundreds" of years.
