Summit Drive

Continuing the tour of the west hills, this Roscoe Hemenway colonial has many of the features one expects from this fine architect: a stately  feel, a great floor plan with an understanding of how people use their homes, and an openness to the outdoors- this one through multiple decks to the rear of the home. There are many places to spread out- the great room on the kitchen has a warming fireplace. A small paneled study has a cozy fireplace as well and feels like the perfect reading spot. The living room is a wonderful size for entertaining, and the finished downstairs holds a bright family room as well as the sweetest little studio spot- the current owner is a quilter and the space holds the most gorgeous fabric swatches. While there is ample decking off the back of the home, there is no lawn- but hey, my kids rarely used the lawn I bought my first house for. Seems a tad high at $895,000 Link to photos.
