One of the most unique aspects of this home is the way the structure is attached to the land. The home sits above Westfield Street, a private meandering country road overlooking Weld Pond, attached to the ledge on which it is built. The ledge is included in the home and provides protection from the elements that are integral to the structure. French drains are built along the bottom of the ledge to allow water flowing down the hill towards Weld Pond to flow around the structure. The ledge that protrudes and is included within the interior provides cooling in the summer, architectural uniqueness in the way that Frank Lloyd Wright proclaimed that “houses should not be built on something, but of something.” 375 Westfield Street is just such a house.
This home is perfect for a family that is looking for a home that they can make their own. Walls for gallery Art, rooms for large parties and entertaining, a master suite that puts you up and into the trees allowing for quiet and solitude all make this home very special for a family who loves contemporary living.
