The star of this Belmont Hill abode is its architecture, which stylishly plays within the bounds of the New England vernacular. Designed in 2008 by the Nantucket-based firm Botticelli and Pohl Architects, the 8,948-square-foot home was conceived as a classic farmstead with a twist—several ­gabled buildings are connected by a two-­story, modern glass-and-concrete insertion that holds the kitchen, dining area, office, and open living space. Throughout, generous windows overlook the adjacent 88-plus-acre wooded preserve. Unique touches include a double-sided fireplace clad in maple and walnut, and a cantilevered concrete staircase. And with luxuries like an art gallery, a steam shower, and a Japanese-style cold plunge tub, we see no reason to ever leave this handsome country retreat.
