This 3-Bedroom, 2.5 Bath Wells Hill home combines a modern flair accentuated by the warmth of traditional detailing throughout – vintage fir flooring, extensive built-ins & millwork, period windows, and classic hardware exude country elegance. A thoughtful east-west floorplan affords abundant southern light and windows on three sides in the main living spaces. An updated Chef’s Kitchen with Breakfast Area and Dining Room seamlessly merge with the outdoors to a Dining Terrace with wisteria covered pergola and rustic granite fieldstone patio. Stonewalls frame the outdoor Dining Patio and adjacent Master Patio spaces. The Master Suite overlooks the backyard, private Pond, and beautiful landscaping. The Upper Level offers two additional Bedrooms and a Full Bath. The finished basement provides ideal bonus space including a large office with built-in desks and cabinetry and den. A Guest Apartment above the two-bay Garage and Barn provide space for everyone.

Descending from the patios the lawn rolls out and down to a spruce forest and rustic destination pond. Nut trees and fruit trees (4 apples & 3 pears) flank the west lawn and south; old lilacs are plentiful. The fenced vegetable garden is ready to be planted. The grapes may need some taming, but they do make great jam! The drive is bordered by hornbeam and yew hedging which frames it creating privacy for the house, patio areas, and beyond. Further afield a new hornbeam hedge has been planted to frame the property from the road and further define the landscape spaces.

Prominently sited at the top of Wells Hill – near Lakeville’s stone urn- the refreshing breeze and beautiful lighting from this classic New England property afford pleasant days in the country and starry nights amongst the backdrop of a big sky!
