Exceptional Middleton colonial affords space, versatility

BY LILLIAN SHAPIRO

---- — Essentially two homes for the price of one, this expansive colonial set upon a sloping hill on a wooded corner lot in Middleton is the definitive in functionality and adaptability. Spanning three levels including the finished walk-out basement, the possibilities are seemingly endless. Should you require an au pair suite, an in-law apartment or simply lots of room in which to raise a family, you’re in luck, for this home is well suited for just about anything.

Custom built for the current owners just over a decade ago, this home could be configured any number of ways as dictated by necessity, says Realtor Sarah MacBurnie of Keller Williams Realty. “The layout is superb and flexible with ample spaces for many wants including the option of combining the first-floor master suite with the separate living quarters on the lower level. With an applianced kitchen and a full bath and a half, you could really create any type of living situation.”

High ceilings, uncluttered spaces and a gracious staircase set the stage as you enter this home. Boasting both beauty and practicality, the gourmet kitchen is thoughtfully accessible from nearly every room. Sure to please even the most discriminating cooks, it features custom cabinetry, granite countertops, high-end stainless steel appliances, a generous center island and a separate dining area. The adjacent family room with vaulted ceiling and gas fireplace provides a leisurely retreat while the living and dining rooms provide an atmosphere more formal. A private in-home office rounds off this floor.

Upstairs, find three additional bedrooms with wall-to-wall carpeting and generous closets. The second master suite is sumptuous with a lavish bath and dressing/sitting room. Ingenious and utterly convenient, find one of this home’s two laundry rooms sharing this level.

While right now it may be hard to think of warmer days, rest assured that when they do arrive, this is where you want to be, according to MacBurnie. “Forget the winter and think summer when you could be lounging on the deck that runs the entire length of the back of this house, or swimming in the in-ground heated pool. This is an idyllic house for entertaining inside and out.”

Also featuring a two-car attached garage and both central air and vac, this home has been newly priced at $819,900.

“It is a well-built house, thoughtfully designed to accommodate today’s way of life,” says the Realtor. “It is convenient to commuter routes for easy access into Boston and it is close to charming downtown Middleton. If you’re in search of a wonderful lifestyle, you need not look any further.”
