Potential Lexington homebuyers will not see anything that even comes close to this unique contemporary on Summer Street on the local real estate market. In fact, unless invited, not many people will be aware of its existence due to its exclusive private setting.
This architect's custom-built home was constructed in 2007 in a high-style modern design with an open layout that has continually grown in popularity to accommodate today's busy lifestyles. Its sleek architectural lines, outdoor alcoves and wood exterior are distinctive features that immediately draw intrigue as to what lies inside of this magnificent property. What awaits is a floor plan that boasts over 3,500 square feet of living space with many exposed spaces for streamlined traffic flow but also includes many inviting nooks where private, quiet moments can also be enjoyed.
The home is grounded with gleaming hardwood on the floor and many ceilings that convey an organic warmth to each space. Elevated ceilings and oversized windows give great visual lift and drench each room with natural sunlight. Recessed and decorative lighting also contribute to the cozy glows in many spaces. Many built-ins contribute as resourceful accessories and assist with its commitment to its structured and non-cluttered outline.
In total, the home offers nine rooms, four bedrooms and three full and one half baths, but its unique blueprint feels even larger with its creative architectural components and intimate spaces. It even provides a stunning au-pair suite with a full kitchen, laundry and separate entry.
Located on a hill on almost a half acre of private land, this property also provides the ultimate secluded oasis and wonderful treetop views. With the magnificent picturesque scenery and lush, mature grounds, it's hard to believe that the Harrington School is only a walk away and it's just minutes to Cambridge and the bustle of the city.
