Property Description

A Conway Farms custom-designed treasure, this classic New England Cape designed by Gene Martin and lushly-landscaped by Rocco Fiore provides an exemplary setting on over 6/10 of an acre abutting a serene pond that can be viewed from almost every major room! A brick-paver walkway leads to a front porch entry and lovely leaded-glass door opening onto a dramatic oak foyer with skylit vaulted ceilings and expansive views right through this amazing home to the soothing pond vistas at the rear. Access to the kitchen and family center are located on one side with the formal living room and separate grand dining room beyond. Oak floors sprawl throughout the main living areas. The huge living room at the end of the foyer features 12’ cathedral ceilings, a large bay window, lovely gas fireplace with marble surround and detailed mantel as well as a picture window with a picture-perfect view of the adjoining pond. The grand formal dining room is large enough to host extensive dinner parties or just a comfortable family gathering. Also with 12’ cathedral ceilings, the dining room additionally yields two sets of sliding doors, one at each end opening out to the two private patio areas. Stepping from the foyer into the family center of this home, the abundant natural light that initially greets you in the foyer is also evident and hugely appealing in the country-kitchen-family room combination. Open design lets the family room, sunroom, breakfast room and kitchen flow together in one expansive space providing walls of windows, access to one of two private brick-paver patios and panoramic views of the pond. The family room features a built-in entertainment center in white raised-panel cabinetry that matches the kitchen it overlooks. The kitchen itself will delight the family culinary expert with its abundance of cabinets, corian counters, built-in appliances & wine rack, convenient breakfast bar & a design that blends into the huge breakfast area, family room & sunroom. The massive breakfast room can easily accommodate a crowd without feeling crowded and opens to a sunroom area at one end with 3 window walls, bead-board paneled cathedral ceilings & room for a mini planning center, office or sitting area. On the opposite side of the main floor foyer is the romantic master bedroom suite complete with its own sliding doors to a second private patio and great pond sunrise views as well as a huge custom-fitted walk-in closet and adjoining luxury spa bath with whirlpool tub, separate shower and commode, a lighted make-up table & dual vanities and sinks. A spacious powder room and main floor laundry room with abundant cabinets and pantry storage complete the first floor. Upstairs are two huge family bedroom suites, each with great architectural lines and both with their own private skylighted baths. One suite includes a built-in desk for a mini-office area and the other features a tandem den, making each a great retreat for guests, in-laws or children. Add a large basement, 2-car attached garage & 2-zoned heat & air conditioning to this one-of-a-kind dream home with a dream setting to match!
