We are proud to present this exquisite 2018 restoration and expansion of a 1904 Queen Anne Shingle Style. The interior is bright and modern, but with all important classic original features intact — a comprehensive and sympathetic renovation by one of the area’s top craftsmen and builders. The crucial architectural finishes — casings, millwork, molding — were preserved whenever possible, and recreated exactingly when not, custom milled so well that we challenge you to tell the difference between original and new. The distinctive original fireplaces have been preserved, with gas inserts.
The inviting, professionally designed kitchen, with a La Cornue range, huge center island, and top-brand appliances, will satisfy even the most fastidious chef. But while pragmatically laid out, you’ll also want to take time to admire the gracious tile work and fixtures. It flows to the family room and opens on the other side to an expansive addition with a spacious mudroom with built-ins and a heated three-car garage. This leads the way to the lower level as well. The kitchen has an indoor-outdoor symbiosis with glass French doors that open to a sprawling bluestone patio that creates an outdoor room, with a gas fire pit and an included grill in its own built-in stone alcove that also has a built-in refrigerator. Lush and level fenced back yard.
The front foyer features the original turned staircase, which leads to the second and third levels. On the second floor is a sumptuous master suite with a gas fireplace, walk-in closet, and en suite spacious bath with heated floors, a soaking tub, a roomy shower with multiple shower heads, a separate custom built-in make-up vanity set complementing the de rigueur double vanity sink area, and there is a separate W.C. with high tech commode. The laundry room is conveniently located on the second floor. Third floor has multiple rooms, including a bedroom and full bath. A finished basement is currently the location for a home gym, plus additional bonus rooms, and a bathroom.
There’s plenty of room for all, with six bedrooms, about 6,000 s.f. on half an acre. Superb location in Munroe Hill, a grand turn-of-the-(last) century neighborhood behind the historic Munroe Tavern, central to all that makes Lexington great. The town center, schools, library, restaurants, bike path, Wilson Farm, and major routes are all within easy distance. Current owners installed a Ring camera and doorbell system (2 doorbells, floodlights, garage and mechanical room cameras, 2 repeaters). Two smart switches for front porch and outside garage lights. ADT security system with motion sensors, glass break sensors, and usual window and door open sensors. Current owners built out custom closets. All systems were installed in the 2018 restoration/rebuild.
The best-of-both worlds blend of restored old world craftsmanship and the level of modern luxury makes this offering truly distinctive. Discerning buyers who are left dissatisfied by the usual cookie cutter developer fare will want to experience the property in person to truly appreciate the rare value of this proud listing of a special property.
