01 Dec Farmhouse Chic Compound in Brookline
Straight out of the pages of a design magazine, this extraordinary compound brings the elevated farmhouse aesthetic to Brookline, Massachusetts, just outside of Boston.
A gated, winding drive leads to nearly four acres of manicured grounds, surrounded you in total privacy. A complete living and entertaining compound, with a total of 12,290 square feet of living space and six bedrooms, is meant to captivate and impress you at every possible turn. The traditional clapboard exterior of the main house only hints at what awaits on the inside. Completely re-envisioned, restored and lovingly renovated for the modern family in mind, the main house masterfully mixes old and new while blending informal family living spaces and gracious rooms grounded in New England formality. Over 8,000 square feet define the well-balanced floorplan. Each space reflects a designer’s touch as you make your way through the house, from the living and dining rooms to the family room, kitchen and gorgeous sunroom. Ultimate family fun is afforded by the recently rebuilt 4,300 square-foot carriage house, which is highlighted by a state-of-the-art gym, game room, art studio, separate private guest suite and five-car garage. Modern amenities and touches have been seamlessly integrated throughout both structures, including a Crestron media and security system and a Lutron lighting system. The grounds serve as a magical and private playground with an in-ground pool, chicken coop and mature plantings. Another bonus? You’ll have easy access to the medical centers, universities and innovative districts in Boston.
