An exceptional fieldstone, clapboard and stucco manor is beautifully sited on three professionally landscaped, cul de sac acres in Halsey Farm, one of Tewksbury’s most sought-after enclaves. This impressive 5,300+ square-foot home was built by Richard Paini and is offered for the first time by the builder-owner. A sunny open floor plan presents five bedrooms, four full baths and two powder rooms as well as an attached three-car garage.
Graceful interior spaces are detailed with generous millwork, high ceilings with architectural treatments, rounded corner walls, a rear staircase, three masonry fireplaces, arched doorways, and Brazilian mahogany and cherry floors. Outside, park-like grounds include an in-ground gunite swimming pool with paver pool patio, a rear paver patio and paver walkways.
Approached by a paved circular drive with a paver front motor court and landscaped center island, the home’s classic architecture makes a majestic first impression. A transom-topped mahogany door edged by sidelights opens into the elegant foyer offering a wide staircase and detailed trim and woodwork. Spanning from this impressive entrance are some of the main gathering spaces. The formal dining room’s dramatic bay window frames lush panoramas of the acreage. A gas/wood-burning fireplace is a focal point of the living room, which easily accesses the library through a French door. The welcoming family room is designed with coffered ceilings and marble surround gas fireplace.
A spacious and open gourmet kitchen presents a large center island topped in granite and illuminated by pendant lights. Custom walnut cabinetry with glass uppers to the ceiling, recessed lights, a walk-in pantry and cathedral ceiling breakfast room are additional amenities. All of the upper-end kitchen appliances are stainless steel including a six-burner Viking™ gas stove with a DCS™ exhaust, two Dacor™ wall ovens, two Miele™ dishwashers, a KitchenAid™ refrigerator, a KitchenAid™ trash compactor and a KitchenAid™ microwave. The breakfast area offers French doors to the patio for outdoor meals. A side entrance, secondary staircase, mud room and informal powder room are nearby.
On the second floor, an expansive master suite is comprised of a comfortable bedroom with a tray ceiling adjoining a dressing room featuring numerous wardrobe organizers. The luxurious master bath presents a jetted tub, two marble-topped cherry vanities, and oversized steam shower and private commode, providing a tranquil sense of total retreat. The second level also offers four additional bedrooms, each connecting to a private or shared full bath, as well as a home office with built-in desk. The partially finished attic has a cedar-lined closet. There is an unfinished walk-out lower level for future living space. Completing this home is a clear span three-car garage with automatic openers.
