Property Features

Rarely available, this special property is located in a very private setting on the grounds of the original Webster country estate in Chestnut Hill. Surrounded by conservation land and nature walks, the property also offers easy proximity to shopping, transportation, and schools.

The handsome, brick/clapboard Colonial-style home, custom built in 1992, has had significant improvements in recent years that preserve its historical elegance while providing contemporary comfort and flow. Its airy interior space features period details that include formal fireplace mantels, high ceilings with crown molding, and a dramatic staircase sweeping up from the entry foyer. A bright, open design connects the chef-ready kitchen to the breakfast room and the family room. Above the attached three-car garage is a spacious guest apartment with vaulted ceilings and French doors.

The property is sited on a beautifully landscaped, fenced half-acre lot. The interior space has been thoughtfully laid out to maximize access to the lush grounds. The library, breakfast room, and family room open onto a large stone terrace from which one can enjoy a view of flowering trees and the sound of falling water in the garden’s pond.
