In the heart of Dedham’s Precinct One, set on a stunning 14-acre site that overlooks Weld Pond, is a handsome Colonial Revival Mansion that was brought faithfully into the 21st century by its renowned high-tech owners. Deploying a team of architects, engineers, and builders to thoroughly restore and update the estate’s grounds, structures, and systems, they created a masterpiece. A long private drive winds past the gatehouse and up through magnificent grounds to the main house with its grand foyer overlooking the water. The formal rooms all have water views: the gumwood paneled living room, the banquet dining room with adjacent butler’s pantry and the classic fireplaced dining room. The expansive kitchen with terrace overlooking the water and adjacent greenhouse lead to the new wing with family room, media room, and a heated 4-car garage below. Beyond the house are a beach and a granite dock for swimming, fishing, and boating. An exquisite formal garden with a pergola overlooks the lake-like pond. The carriage house is a domain of its own with three offices, a conference room, a guest suite, a caterer’s kitchen, a reception lounge, a gym, and a billiards room. The locker rooms downstairs serve the pool and the tennis court. All of this is within reach of top-notch schools and a convenient commute to Logan and downtown Boston!
