This Wellesley home is a fantastic find with interesting features (Photo Provided).

Real estate is about finding a property with something unique or exceptional, and this home has many atypical features to set it apart. “When you enter the home, it really has that ‘wow’ factor,” says Benoit Mizner Simon & Co. listing agent Amy Mizner.

This stylish colonial has a transitional feel with a blend of traditional elements and stone, mosaic, and tile treatments to give a modern flare. The flexibility of the structural design of the home makes it perfect for buyers from first-time homeowners to empty-nesters looking for a new residence or those looking for lots specifically in Wellesley.

Extensively renovated a few years ago and enhanced by the current owners, this home does not need any updates. With interesting details like a his & her office and a three-season sunroom warmed by radiant heat, making it a year-round living space, this home has unique attributes that are rarely found in the area.

From the gourmet kitchen to the gracious living room and even down to the fininshed lower level, the formal spaces in this home are the informal spaces, making it an extremely livable residence. “This is what buyers are looking for and what they’re updating houses to look like,” says Mizner.

One of the truly distinctive features, however, is on the outside of the home: an outdoor shower. With an expansive yard abutting Boulder Brook Reservation, this could be the perfect place to take long hikes in the woods without bringing the woods back home.
