[Sold $920,000.] Summer may be ending but you can feel like you’re vacationing year-round in this large architect designed Mid-Century-Modern House that is conveniently located and 20 minutes away from Boston.
The house was extremely well built with bolted posts and beams by the renowned architect William Mello in 1967 for his own family and updated by the current owners. Privately set back on a large wooded lot in the highly desirable Estabrook school district. This beautiful home flows pleasingly with an open concept living and dining rooms that create an ell into the modern kitchen with a Miele dishwasher, gas range, stainless appliances, and extra-deep granite counter tops. A transitional space leads to a three-season porch perfect for entertaining or just lounging. Nature is never far from view via tall windows and sliders that open to a sunny deck and lawn. There’s a big interior storage room and exterior shed. A detached finished 400 s.f. studio has electricity and wood stove heating.
The house also features its own basketball/badminton/tennis court and has 2 high-quality modern carports.
Easy access to Rte 2 and downtown Lexington. Close to new Estabrook ES, mt. biking, hiking, and cross-country skiing on 40 miles of conservation trails. Recent updates to electric, heating, roof, more. A must see.
