A Fusion for the Centuries...This 1925 Lower Hillsborough icon delivers the romance of the Gatsby era united with modern flow and technology. Hillsborough's #1 Sale for 2020, the estate stands irreproducible in its grounds, location, and architectural evolution. Just beyond the gates, the authentic Tudor vernacular sets the tone with half-timbering, mighty roof gables, and the patina of Boston ivy accenting the facade.
Stepping inside through an Elizabethan hand-carved door, it is immediately apparent that the interiors are intimately harmonized with 2 acres of private gardens. Grand public rooms open out to trellised terraces, huge sweeps of lawn, pool, orchard, majestic trees, guest house, firepit, and tennis court. The privacy is uncanny, with your line of sight composed purely of heritage trees and sheltered greenbelt that culminate in a perimeter creek. Throughout 10,000+ feet, the 7-bedroom home mixes classic formality with modern flourishes, fluid in its ability to connect spaces and genres.
The entire ambiance takes on a cinematic quality in more ways than one. The charisma will sweep you off your feet, while the amenities will dazzle including a world-class home theater, Crestron home automation, advanced indoor/outdoor lighting, wiring, sound, and climate control. The true lens of the home is the glass-walled family media room. It is here beneath 11 ft. ceilings that the visual of the property comes into full focus: walls of glass soar to reveal the vast lawn and pool beyond. Up a nearby secret flight of stairs, and built above the 4-car garage, you will find an immersive home theater experience, non pareil. Professionally sound-proofed and exceedingly equipped, this destination will be right at home from pajama parties to director's screenings!
At the end of the day, it is not the requisite rooms and features of a home that make it great. But rather the story that is told...the feeling that is conveyed...and the depth of character and irreplaceable assets that become the canvas of your life.
