Imagine living in a home so special and unique that it once graced the cover of Better Homes and Garden Magazine, chosen as a feature story for its innovative design. A 2005-2007 architect-designed renovation updated and expanded the home, respecting its original characteristics and timeless appeal, yet adding modern amenities to fit today’s lifestyle. The renovation not only expanded the floorplan, but also included extensive updates to its systems including the heating, cooling, electrical, roof, exterior, windows, and much more.

The landscape’s striking curb appeal makes a lovely first impression accented by a stone walkway, mature trees, perennial plantings, and its tranquil wooded surroundings.

The double-door entry, framed at each side by large windows, welcomes you inside the large foyer. The foyer’s stone flooring gradually transitions to gleaming oak hardwood floors as the open, airy living spaces begin to unfold. You will feel right at home in the spacious and stunning living room featuring a wall of glass to welcome the sunshine while offering peaceful views of the backyard beyond. The wood burning fireplace, with a cherry wood mantel and surround, provides a cozy place to gather on chilly nights.

A custom, sliding glass door offers a great connection to the expansive stone patio for easy outdoor living.

An additional glass door from the living room connects with the screened porch and further to the backyard, offering a wonderful spot to enjoy the outdoors rain or shine. The backyard is a nature lover’s paradise with carefully selected, native plantings and privacy galore. Summer days will be spent relaxing beneath the shady trees or dining al fresco on the oversized stone patio partially covered by the dramatic peaked roofline soaring above.

The living room transitions seamlessly into the open concept dining room as the gleaming oak hardwood floors continue to flow. A large bay window offers a custom-built window seat and delightful views of the wooded backdrop beyond.

The chef’s culinary skills will shine in the modern, stylish kitchen with stainless steel appliances, white cabinetry, gas cooking, hardwood flooring, a built-in microwave, and recessed lighting. The informal dining area is flooded by natural light featuring a large bay window with a custom window seat and a glass door offering easy access to the backyard and beyond. Another door from the kitchen connects with the two-car garage, perfect for managing an active lifestyle.

The renovation created the inviting master suite with hardwood floors and a huge walk-in closet to organize your entire wardrobe. Large double windows bring the outdoors in with picturesque views of the surrounding landscape. The master bathroom is beautifully updated with a granite-topped dual sink vanity, ceramic tile flooring, a skylight, and a large, walk-in tiled shower with a frameless glass door.

Three more family bedrooms have a cheery feel with large double windows, hardwood floors, and ample closet space. The family bathroom is nicely done in neutral tones with a dual sink vanity, ceramic tile floor, and a tiled tub with shower.

This truly special home offers the perfect blend of private spaces when rest or quiet times are needed and large areas to gather for special family moments. An open staircase from the kitchen offers easy access to the upper and lower levels. The second level offers a highly functional, private office or art studio perfect for working remotely. The office is full of natural light with skylights, large windows, hardwood flooring, and recessed lighting. A built-in counter with cabinetry and a sink offers the perfect spot for your coffee maker with a space beneath to accommodate a mini fridge. A second wall of built-in cabinetry features drawers and a desk area for added storage and organization. Another versatile room on the second level works well as an additional office, yoga studio, or to use as desired. A half bathroom with a skylight is adjoining the office for added convenience.

More space awaits on the finished, walkout lower level with a family room, laundry room, and another half bathroom. The family room is cozy and inviting, featuring a gas fireplace, recessed lighting, a large bank of windows for lots of natural light, and a glass door to the lower patio.

A rare find, this immaculate home has it all including a coveted location walking distance to schools, town recreation, the Old Res beach area, and all the amenities Lexington’s town center has to offer. The friendly neighborhood is close knit and even has a dedicated WhatsApp chat to share local information and keep in touch. Commuters will love a short stroll to public transportation, the bike path, and easy access to Route 2. Lace up your sneakers and explore the popular Lincoln Park and the Across Lexington Trail System. Welcome home to Lexington, known for its excellent public schools, rich history, open conservation land and parks, and dynamic community life.
