Symmetry, columns, and keystone-accented arched windows give the Roxbury a distinctly colonial flavor. But inside, this estate-size home is clearly contemporary.
Entering through the barrel-vaulted porch, you step into an elegant and spacious tiled foyer with a graceful curved staircase. The ceiling here, and in the living room, is a lofty two stories high.
To the left is a stately dining room; to the right, a large room with a fireplace. This room could be furnished as a den, home office, library, or entertainment center.
A railed balcony overlooks both the foyer and sunken living room. With windows filling most of the rear wall, and more light spilling down through twin skylights, this expansive space is also exceptionally bright. The gas fireplace provides warmth and color when the weather turns dark and cold.
In the nook, French doors offer access to a large patio, and sliding doors allow separation or openness to the kitchen.
Cupboard and counter space wrap around four sides of the comfortably large kitchen. Features here include: a central work island, built-in appliances, skylight, walk-in pantry, and a desk. Utilities and a half-bath are nearby, equally convenient to the three-car garage with built-in storage closets. The hallway bench is ideal for removing muddy footgear.
Except for the guest suite, bedrooms are upstairs and every bedroom has its own bathroom.
The Roxbury’s owners’ suite is large, private and luxurious. His ‘n’ hers walk-in closets flank the passageway to a tiled bathroom with two vanities, spa tub, and enclosed toilet and shower.
Skylights brighten the owners’ suite, a bedroom, and a huge bonus room over the garage.
