A tribute to the English Countryside, this Turn of the Century grand estate was originally designed and built in 1909 by noted arts and crafts architect Thomas Mott Shaw. Along the private winding approach you will find a stucco and stone architectural masterpiece, full of symmetry and balance. This 9,300+/- square foot, eight bedroom manor is set privately on 10.4+/- acres with abutting conservation and access to the Sudbury River. Unique and timeless details include oversized quarter-sawn oak pillars with hand carved moldings, imported Italian mosaic fireplace ensigned with heron motif, and the soaring 11-foot beamed ceilings in the great room, designed for dueling pianos. The kitchen has been tastefully updated with custom cherry cabinets and stone countertops, a 10-foot island, sunny breakfast area, and walk-through butler’s pantry with wet bar. The first floor also includes a large, but cozy fireplaced family room, hardwood floors throughout, twin porches, elegant dining room and powder room. On the second floor, an executive office, master suite with one full and one half bath, two walk-in closets and sunlit office, a playroom and two additional bedrooms. The third floor adds two more bedrooms, sitting room and full bath.
The completely private three-bedroom in-law apartment with its own driveway, address and two-car garage has been used as a legal rental and is perfect for extended family and guests.
The gated grounds are meticulously landscaped offering a terraced view of natural rock formations, gardens, distant woodlands and a seasonal pond for skating.
One can lose themselves in thought along the landscape lit paths, enjoy a game of tennis, cool off in the pool or meander to Fairhaven Bay for fishing, kayaking and forest hiking trails.
