On the Market: A Sun-Saturated Seven-Bed Home in Brookline
Take a gander at its Celtics-themed indoor basketball court.
33 Lyman Road, Brookline
Size: 10,128 square feet
It’s an age-old problem: How to find a home that allows you to practice your jump shot all year long, swim laps and soak in a sauna, own a huge yard while also living close to the city, all while housing a family of seven. Well, this Brookline residence is quite possibly the only suitable answer.
Though labeled as a single-family, the massive home could easily shelter several generations with its seven bedrooms, eight bathrooms, and two half baths. The master bath boasts an angled freestanding tub and a sleek walk-in shower, and the master bed follows luxurious suit with a vanity incorporated into a wall of built-in shelves, and a large TV hung over the fireplace. The walk-in closet is a room of its own: A stunning floral light fixture casting a warm glow onto expansive hanging clothing storage, dozens of shoe shelves, and an island with plenty of lockable drawers to stash accessories.
While the individual accommodations are remarkable, the common spaces are what make this property truly exceptional. On hot summer days, practice your backstroke in the large outdoor pool—outfitted with an automatic cover for family-friendly safety and debris-free cleanliness—then warm up in the stone elevated hot tub, and plod across the heated patio to towel off inside.
The patio itself is broad enough for a full family dinner, which you can cook up on the outdoor grill or inside the kitchen, where high-quality appliances such as a Miele speed oven and coffee bar, a SubZero fridge, and a 48-inch Viking range ensure a well-prepared meal. White and gray tones mingle in the sunny eat-in kitchen to affect a tranquil atmosphere.
A miniature TD Garden of its own, complete with a Celtics emblem and emerald green cushions padding the walls, takes up part of the basement level. While the youngsters scrimmage inside, an outdoor half court features a taller hoop for those looking to master their slam dunk.
