Luxury abounds in this spectacular Boxford home

Built for extensive entertaining yet evincing the warmth that a New England country home should radiate, this classic, 14-room Colonial residence graces 4 lovely acres in a private estate area of Boxford. The drive through the private and secure gates up the paved pathway to the home’s entrance provides striking views of both the impressive home and the sweeping grounds that surround the structure.

Designed by a master builder, the seven-bedroom, 61/2-bathroom residence bears witness to the craftsman’s skills from the stunning marble-floored grand foyer to the graceful arch of the hand-crafted staircase. Past the foyer, the main level living spaces offer the formal living room and living room — both with fireplaces, as well as the fireplaced dining room where extensive views of the grounds create an elegant space. This level also boasts the home’s executive library and first-floor guest suite. The designer kitchen features top quality appliances, an extended breakfast area and serving stations that also overlook the grounds. Gleaming hardwood and other custom amenities add to the beauty and luxury of this residence.

The second level boasts six generous bedrooms and the grand master suite with private bath, custom finishes and enormous California closets ensuring that you’ll never run out of storage. The master bedroom also features the home’s fourth fireplace. There are additional private areas throughout the home for reading, study, sand music. It’s a home built for those who treasure both the company of extended visitors and the space to accommodate everyone in a way that moves beyond simple comfort.

Outside the home’s resort-style swimming pool, hot tub, and recreation areas rival the best of country club living in both tasteful design and execution. The grounds have been professionally designed and maintained to be both impeccable and respectful to Boxford’s bucolic setting.
