Private, Secure and Special! Weston MA Contemporary. This is how I would describe 165 Conant Road after my visit for you this weekend. This contemporary home is unlike any other we have seen. It is unassuming when you pull in the driveway. It sits sideways on its very distinctive and professionally manicured yard. As you enter the front door you see another door further down the entryway. You won’t know, and could never guess this is a private entrance for an au pair suite. The frosted glass windows on the large double entrance front doors keep you from seeing the magnificence of the soaring glass contemporary house inside. You will never know how wonderful this home is until you visit.
As I entered, my breath was taken away from the immense glass wall that is this house. It soars from this entrance the entire side of the house. There are two beautifully sculpted stairways leading up, but that is not what I felt as I walked directly to the light and windows. What I felt was the grandeur. Contemporaries are not like regular houses and those that love them understand they choose to live life by their own rules. When I got to the windows I turned around to see what I was missing as I was drawn to the rounded architectural beauty of this side of the house upon entering.
What I saw was a soaring spiral of wood, shape and design. What I found out when I went up the stairs is that this is where the Master Suite, another family room-more intimate than the first floors- and a game room. The very large master also held two sets of stairs that are private to the Master. One set will take you down to the kitchen and patio while the other circles upstairs to a private office. This private office space keeps you focused on your tasks and away from all the activities of this large and lovely house.
As you come down the back stairs from the Master you are graced with a view of the manicured backyard. I think you will be particularly impressed with the human sized chess board made into the patio. Large chess pieces will allow you to invite your chess loving friends to play this game in a way that brings life to the competition. The back yard patio is very large and would permit elegant parties to be enjoyed in complete privacy. While Conant Road is a busy road the way this contemporary is situated, you will never ever feel the road from inside the house. The way the structure sits on the property you can enjoy this home in complete privacy without ever seeing or hearing your neighbors.
This is a one of a kind property and it currently comps out at above the full asking price. While contemporaries are not for everyone, anyone who likes contemporaries will love this one. Lest I forget anything the Kitchen was remodeled recently by one of the most respected kitchen designers in this area and has all the things any master chef would want. Finally there is another room down the steps from the entry way that is perfect for a children’s play room, a guest room, a bedroom for an elderly relative because it has it’s own entrance and toilet, or you can use it as the family does as a music room. You must come to see this house while it is off the market. I know you will be impressed as I am .
