When classic elegance meets modern-day necessity, the stage is ultimately set for excellence. Exemplifying this tried and true formula is “West Hill” — a quintessential New England Colonial located in the heart of bucolic Hamilton. Though it has been thoughtfully updated throughout the years, it concurrently boasts a laundry list of early nineteenth-century appointments such as crown moldings, hardwood floors, and four wood burning fireplaces. Presented by Jo Baker of J Barrett & Company, it is listed for $1,599,000.
“This is a gracious home that blends traditional stylings with a reconfigured layout to better accommodate today’s more contemporary lifestyle,” says the realtor.
A sun-filled portico leads the way to beautifully appointed rooms including a cozy library with walls of book shelves, a spacious living room, and a charming solarium overlooking a flagstone terrace. A formal dining room featuring decorative wainscoting and an intricately carved mantel is further enhanced by a convenient butler’s pantry with wet bar. Just adjacent, the gourmet eat-in kitchen with granite counter tops, double wall ovens, a six-burner stove, and a center island, flows effortlessly into a lovely family room complete with built-in cabinetry and French doors to a private deck. A convenient powder room rounds off this main level.
Ascend the ornate staircase to the second floor to find a generous en suite master with two custom closets, a jetted soaking tub, a steam shower, and a double vanity; three additional bedrooms, two full baths, a laundry room, and a large family room with vaulted ceilings. For even more space, the third level offers three more bedrooms, another full bath, and a home office.
Additional features include recessed lighting, a walk-up cedar lined attic, a two-car attached garage, outdoor lighting, a high-efficiency heating system, and professional landscaping. Sited on nearly two acres abutting the Myopia Schooling field and Harvard Woods, this property is easily accessible to the horse trail system.
“The remarkable thing about this home is that while it has been refreshed and somewhat redesigned, its beautiful and historic bones have remained the same,” says Baker. “This is a very memorable property.”
