Known as ‘Top Hill’ for its endless views, this updated 1936 colonial, designed by Boston architect James Hampden Robb and located on the North Shore, has been listed for $5.7 million.

The home’s driveway slopes up to a washed brick and clapboard exterior with a slate roof and copper detailing. “As you enter through the pillars and wind up the driveway, it almost feels like you are rising above the clouds,” says listing agent Mandy Sheriff.

Inside, traditional details have been restored, and a well-lit living room and spacious kitchen with a double farmhouse sink are highlights of the first level. Throughout the home, hardwood floors with deeply set moldings, paneled doors and fireplaces show period craftsmanship. Top Hill’s second level includes a full master suite and three additional bedrooms.

The property features a separate three-car garage, a guesthouse, and a garden house. Views from the rolling lawns will likely remain untouched, as the home overlooks the Myopia Hunt Club Golf Course. “It’s about as much privacy as you can find anywhere on the North Shore,” says Sheriff.
