On the Market: An Ultramodern Mansion in Weston
Decked out with a turf court, quirky wine cellar, and massive windows, this is quite possibly Weston’s coolest home.
63 Westcliff Road, Weston
Size: 9,280 square feet
This entire home looks like a modern art museum. Not just because of the ample floor-to-ceiling windows—the exterior is almost more glass than wood—but because the design is so aesthetically pleasing that you want to stand and stare at it. But with durable materials and playful details, this exhibit is one you’re not afraid to run around.
The gallery vibes start in the basement, where a whimsical wine cellar lives (along with a game room and exercise studio). Not only can it store all of your summer rosés and wintry reds, but a floor made of hand-placed wine corks and a chandelier layered with wine glasses adds a splash of panache to the subterranean room.
The kitchen sits on the first floor, where a white marble island and chrome finishes create a sleek, easy-to-clean eat-in, and wide planks of white oak hardwood lend some Scandinavian style. Though there’s seating at the breakfast bar, there’s also plenty of room for a proper kitchen table underneath a trio of geometric lampshade fixtures. Blackboard paint covers the adjacent wall so you can jot down your grocery list, or make the room into a lively gallery of your own chalkwork.
The dining room offers a slightly less casual approach to supping, though zigzag printed cabinets and contemporary lighting keeps things conversational. A clean-lined floating staircase forms another zigzag, leading to the second floor. There, cool-toned bedrooms, a glorious walk-in closet, and bathrooms with soaking tubs and glass-walled showers make the living quarters into a serene retreat.
The 1.8 acre yard is a sophisticated playground of its own, with a turf court, beautifully landscaped grounds, and a heated gunite pool surrounded by a marble patio and teak deck.
