New construction is an exciting and rare purchasing opportunity in the Belmont real estate market. This gorgeous 18-room contemporary (Colonial-esque?), however, is an exceptional residential prospect in any town. Still in its finishing phases, this luxurious home is scheduled to offer the highest level of modern living to its first owners. It is being constructed with only the finest materials and premier amenities and will endure both physically and ascetically throughout many generations.
Ed. note: This new construction is surprisingly not the most pricey property on the block; it is a stone throw from the $3,950,000, 87-year-old Georgian Revival mansion with a two-room museum Patch highlighted a few weeks ago.
With more than 5,700 square feet of living space, each room has been designed to accommodate large families and grand entertaining as well as intimate gatherings. The first level includes formal areas with a 14 x 14 square foot living room and a 14 x 15 square foot dining room, and more commonly-used spaces with a 27 x 16 square foot gourmet kitchen and a 14 x 15 square foot study.
The second level hosts luxurious lodging with a 17 x 17 square foot master bedroom with a custom-built walk-in closet and four bedrooms measuring 14 x 14 (2), 17 x 13 and 14 x 12 square feet. The finished basement stretches its footprint to its fullest potential by offering a 17 x 17 square foot family room. Its footprint also supports viable expansion prospects to finish the attic and basement which contain elevated ceilings and full windows.
For amenities, no stone was left unturned with its initial construction. This "smart home" comes fully equipped with energy-efficient utilities and are prewired for audio, television, phone, internet, cameras and touch panels. All of the systems (lighting, security, HVAC, etc) can be integrated, monitored, and controlled remotely on devices like tablets, computers, and smart phones.
Located 20 minutes from Boston (and 500 feet from il Casale), this property also comes with breathtaking city views continually reminding its residents the convenience of Belmont's locality with the commerce and culture of metropolitan living just a few miles away. For prospective homebuyers of a certain type (i.e. really wealthy) experiencing frustration (!) to discovering the home of their dreams, the search if over. This home has it all.
