On the Market: A Contemporary Escape with Floor-to-Ceiling Windows
“Let there be light.” —This home’s architect, probably.
10 Scotch Pine Circle, Wellesley
Size: 5,500 square feet
It’s hard to say which is more beautiful: this bucolic Wellesley landscape, or the ultra modern construction that fits into it like a futuristic rock formation.
Lawn, rocks, and evergreens make up the surrounding terrain, and a slew of floor-to-ceiling windows brings the outdoor scenery inside. The blurred line not only makes for some beautiful interior design, but can also provide a dose of ecotherapy for nature-starved dwellers.
The man-made aspects of the house do not disappoint, either. White oak floors, recessed lighting and bright white walls all reflect the sunlight that pours through the huge glass panes. A wooden planked ceiling distinguishes the open-concept living room from the kitchen, while Cote d’Azur marble accents around the fireplace and sink backsplash unite them into a cavernous yet cohesive space.
Also on the first floor, a marble wet bar and a home office will leave you hard-pressed to find a reason to venture beyond the limits of the three-quarter-acre property. Tiptoe up the metal and wood floating staircase that connects the first and second floor, which both feature their own master suites with full bathrooms and walk-in closets. A sixth bedroom, mudroom with built-in storage, and two other rooms to customize to your lifestyle live on the basement level.
Needless to say, the light that pours into this cutting edge home is one of its sunniest selling points. But if a design that is almost more window than wall has you worried about safety, no need to fret—a Honeywell Houselogix security system protects the estate.
