A true delight you need to see to believe, perfectly located steps from the popular Wilson’s Farm. This completely transformed home offers a unique design created around an exterior courtyard and delivers a ‘like new’ feel with modern style and curb appeal galore. A newly constructed brick pathway and granite steps lead you past the professionally landscaped gardens and invite you inside the front entry where a beautiful neutral color palette and gleaming hardwood floors flow throughout the home’s open and airy interior full of thoughtfully designed renovations. Natural light streams through the large lattice-paned windows of the formal living room adorned by alternating panels of stained and clear glass. Gleaming hardwood floors span the area, expertly crafted in an eye-catching pattern with planks of varying widths. The living room transitions seamlessly into the gourmet kitchen as the sparkling hardwood floors and coffered ceilings continue to span the immaculate home.

A recent renovation created the stunning, completely new, open concept kitchen guaranteed to inspire your inner chef. Dash across the street for fresh produce from Wilson’s Farm and return home to create culinary delights with stainless steel appliances, gas cooking, a breakfast bar island, an Italian Calacatta marble backsplash, custom cabinetry with brushed nickel hardware, modern lighting from Restoration Hardware, hardwood floors, and superior soapstone countertops carefully selected from Vermont Soapstone. The kitchen opens to the dining area before spilling even further into the completely redesigned grand family room. This area is a true showstopper with a dramatic cathedral ceiling defined by exposed beams, wainscoting, expansive windows, and high-end updated lighting by Restoration Hardware. Gleaming hardwood floors span the room as a wood-burning fireplace creates a focal point with its sweeping floor to ceiling brick façade and raised hearth. The hardwood flooring gradually transitions to a lovely slate tile entry area with garage access and a glass paneled door connecting with the private patio. The brick patio is nestled perfectly among the delightful gardens accented by perennial plantings, stone walls, and pathways. Imagine many summer days relaxing and entertaining in this peaceful and serene outdoor space. A side entry from the kitchen offers another great connection to the driveway, garage, and courtyard area.

Modern style and meticulous attention to detail continues at every turn with a versatile first level bedroom or office sharing the same unique lattice-paned windows of the formal living room, in addition to a ceiling fan, hardwood floors, and a large double closet for storage. The main hallway of the first level spans to a cheerful office space with custom cabinetry and further beyond to a full bathroom. The bathroom was renovated with new custom cabinetry to match the kitchen and a beautifully tiled shower. A newly added mudroom is perfect for managing an active lifestyle with a coat closet, lockers, and shoe storage.

A staircase from the front foyer leads to the second level where the home continues to impress with the spacious master suite, two more generous family bedrooms, custom closets, and a full bathroom. The master suite underwent a complete remodel creating a stylish and comfortable retreat with a walk-through closet, dressing area, shining hardwood floors, and a cathedral ceiling. Prepare to be amazed at the master bathroom adorned by endless glass featuring a grand tiled shower with a frameless glass door, a private toilet area, a custom dual sink vanity with Italian Pietra Cardosa stone counters, and high-end Robern cabinetry. Fall asleep beneath the stars in the family bedrooms graced by large skylights. The bedrooms are bright and cheerful with hardwood floors, large double custom closets, and ceiling fans. The family bathroom on the second level was completely renovated creating a modern feel with classic white subway tiles, highly-desirable Calacatta marble flooring, a custom vanity, high-end Robern medicine cabinet, and a custom extra-deep tub. Additional storage closets were added to the second level hallway offering the ultimate in storage and organization with an off-season clothing closet, shoe closet, and linen closet.

A staircase from the grand family room offers additional and direct access to the finished lower level with a large space perfect for use as a playroom, yoga, or exercise area with an adjoining storage room. The playroom features built-in seats with custom cushions, modern tile flooring, and high-end Restoration Hardware lighting. The lower level continues with a spacious laundry room offering abundant storage.

More finished space awaits with a huge and private teen or guest suite above the garage. This spacious room has a large triple window for abundant light, recessed lighting, two large skylights, an oversized double closet, and a full bathroom. The bathroom was recently added and is stylish with a modern vanity and shower stall.

Perfectly located in a desirable Lexington neighborhood steps to Wilson’s Farm and perfect for commuters with easy access to Route 2. The Minuteman Bike Path is only a short stroll away. Immerse yourself in the town’s rich history and be a part of a highly renowned public school system. This is the one you have been waiting for!
