This gracious 12 year-young colonial on Falmouth Rd. in Wellesley could possibly be the most family/entertaining-friendly home that has appeared on the Wellesley real estate market for a long time. With 12 rooms spread throughout four levels of living space, there is more than enough room to accommodate the evolving needs of a family, and with the enhancement of its open, spacious floor plan, those special occasions can be easily shared and enjoyed.

The most impressive space in this home is the expansive 27 x 19 square foot great room/solarium. A floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace marks the main focal point in the space, but its cathedral ceiling, loft and breakfast bar into the kitchen are architectural details that cannot be compared. That neighboring 26 x 14 square foot gourmet kitchen, however, holds its own for impressive designs with an abundance of cabinet and granite counter space, including an elongated center island and premier stainless steel appliances. Fireplaces in the 17 x 20 and 17 x 17 square foot formal living and dining rooms set the stage for warm and welcoming settings and the 17 x 12 square foot library with custom built-ins offers an intimate space for residents and their families.

The second level hosts four en-suite bedrooms at (2) 15 x 13 and 17 x 14 square feet, including a luxurious 17 x 34 square foot master suite with a private dressing room. The third floor expands the sleeping accommodations with two additional bedrooms at 17 x 19 and 13 x 18 square feet and a full bath. This floor would make an ideal au-pair, teenager or guest suite.

The lower level addresses leisure and recreational activities with a game room and exercise room, however, these spaces could easily be adapted to comply with individual or family needs and preferences.

Sited on over an acre of land, this property initially constructs its picturesque impression as guests pull into the circular driveway, which really fittingly introduces the level of design and beauty that awaits inside. Of course, the fortunate residents of this lovely home will appreciate the grandeur and warmth of this unique home on their first day of occupancy.
