Location, Historic, Architectural and Iconic. Rarely does such a superb property come to market. Located on one of the most beautiful country roads in Roxbury. This circa 1840’s Greek Revival type is perfectly sited to catch the sun, thus many of the rooms are bathed in light. The rooms are centered around the period fireplace. The front rooms consist of a generous formal dining room and handsome library with fireplace. The cook’s kitchen with center island and its abundance of windows, patio access, and post and beam construction is open to the main living areas of the home. This is an extraordinary space for easy entertaining. Ceiling are 9′ 6” with wide board floors, architectural details reflecting the period, and a sense of historic integrity.
The main level primary bedroom is en-suite and has its own wing with all amenities and complete privacy. Also on the main level is powder room and laundry. Upstairs there are four additional bedrooms (one with a fireplace) and a large bathroom. The land, consisting of eight acres, is level and mostly open meadow providing pollinator pathways. An in-ground pool, a tennis court, a pond, a significant historic English Bank barn, established gardens, all amenities which create country living to perfection. The property is adjacent to Roxbury Land Trust. There have been thoughtful additions over the years combining architectural integrity with gracious modern living. Co-listing Agent/Owner.
