Decorative wrought iron gates open to a carriage driveway and reveal the spectacular mature gardens that create the estate setting for this Colonial Revival masterpiece. Set upon Myopia Hill, among homes of similar architectural distinction, it is difficult to imagine that such privacy can be available so close to the town of Winchester and within striking distance of the city of Boston. This family-friendly neighborhood provides ease of access to all Winchester offers: fine schools (Ambrose Elementary, McCall Middle and Winchester High), children’s activities and clubs, boat club, beach, golf course, and events at the community’s Wright Locke Farm, to name but a few. Trains to Boston, from the local Wedgemere station, take approximately 15 minutes to North Station.
This home is resplendent in architectural detail, both inside and out. The floor plan was designed with a principal goal – to be first and foremost a family home designed around a central core dedicated to a large open plan kitchen and a generously proportioned family room. Other notable features include the master suite, with its private roof deck, five guest bedrooms, a vast recreation room, a spa and fitness room, and a wine cellar. The grounds of this property are as important to the family’s enjoyment of it, as the house is. To the rear of the house is a large granite patio, with built-in grill, overlooking lawns for children’s activities and a woodland wonderland for exploration.
