This truly special, architect-designed gem is nestled on a quiet street in the very desirable Merriam Hill, within walking distance to schools and everything Lexington’s town center has to offer. A thoughtfully designed floor plan allows for an easy flow and versatility, perfect for comfortable living. The entry foyer opens with delightful sightlines to the kitchen beyond. The spacious formal dining room draws you in on the left where many special meals will be shared with gleaming hardwood floors, a brick accent wall, exposed beams, and a floor to ceiling window for abundant natural light. A soaring cathedral ceiling highlights the far end of the room for an added feeling of expansiveness.

The dining room flows into a sunny, cheerful room with versatility to use as a playroom, music room, or as desired. Shining hardwood floors and large windows grace this light-filled space with built-in shelving for the ultimate storage and organization. A wood-burning fireplace nestled in the far corner adds ambiance and style with its white mantel and surround. The large windows showcase tranquil views of the surrounded landscape, offering an occasional glimpse of hummingbirds, butterflies, and other small wildlife.

A sun-filled breakfast room, with hardwood floors, walls of windows, and exterior access to the backyard, offers the perfect space to enjoy your morning coffee overlooking the peaceful landscape.

The whole family will love to gather in the gourmet, open-concept kitchen while baking cookies or tending to homework. The beautifully updated space features a huge breakfast bar island with a gas cooktop, stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, stylish white cabinetry, a coffered ceiling, hardwood floors, and recessed lighting. A large bay window over the sink offers picturesque views of the surrounding backyard beyond.

The spacious and private yard was extensively landscaped in 2016 creating exquisite garden areas and curb appeal galore. It is truly an entertainment haven with plenty of space to play soccer or field hockey. Summer days will be spent relaxing on the huge stone patio as mature trees and perennial plantings provide beauty and shade.

The kitchen flows seamlessly into the family room where you will feel right at home as the Rumford fireplace creates a warm and cozy atmosphere. French doors open to the backyard and patio.

Step down into the living room where natural light streams through the walls of windows in this lovely room featuring shining hardwood floors and built-in shelving. French doors at each side offer another great connection to the outdoors. A staircase from this wing provides easy access to the oversized, two-car garage with plenty of room for parking and additional storage. A half bathroom is located off the hallway near the kitchen for added convenience.

A spacious bedroom suite above the garage offers a wonderful private master or guest suite. This expansive retreat features hardwood floors, two sets of large double closets, and an adjoining office. The master bathroom stuns in neutral tones with dual sinks, marble countertops, a tiled shower, spa tub, separate toilet area, and radiant heat flooring.

The second level of this wonderful home continues to impress with four more large family bedrooms, all with en suite full bathrooms, including a second spacious bedroom suite, which would work well as an alternate master suite if desired. The large bedroom suite features a cathedral ceiling, skylights, gleaming hardwood floors, a large double closet, and an adjoining office. A brick accent wall and floor to ceiling window continue to span the entire height of the bedroom from the home’s first level with decorative openings to the dining room below. The en suite bathroom has a modern feel with a stylish white vanity and a tub with shower.

All the family bedrooms are sunny and spacious with shining hardwood floors, ample closets, and en suite full bathrooms. There is plenty of space to accommodate guests, if needed, and the kids will love having their own bathroom.

This truly special home offers the perfect blend of private spaces when rest or quiet times are needed and large, inviting areas to gather for special family moments. The lower level unfolds with spacious open concept areas offering endless possibilities for use as a media room, game room, exercise space or whatever you desire. Another full bathroom offers added convenience with a tub and shower.

Enjoy a prime location within walking distance to all the town center has to offer including shopping, dining, a movie theater, the library, the Hayden Recreation Center, public schools, the town pool, tennis courts, public transportation and much more.
