6 BR, 4.5 baths, 6000 sq ft. Has EVERYTHING, near everything too!
We wanted a family home in a suburb *very* close to Boston, Harvard, & MIT (where we work/ed) and with easy access to VT, ME & NH. We love to travel & are happy to have others enjoy the house while we are away. Our family loves the outdoors & sports with lots of biking, tennis, skiing, cross-country, jogging, and even sailing/canoeing nearby at Spot Pond.
Mark purchased this House in 2001

Wonderful family weekend
My husband and I wanted a place to stay with our four young adult sons for a long weekend away from the routine. We had the best time. The house was large enough for everyone to have their own space at times but also come together for meals and conversation. Well appointed and maintained, the house was welcoming and luxurious. The hosts were available by text and very accommodating. Highly recommend.
This spectacular house is just as good as all the reviews say. We were a group of just six (originally eight but two had to cancel). The house is extraordinarily expansive and there are lots of different places to "hang out", and also to find privacy.
The owners have thought of EVERYTHING! There are nice little explanatory notes throughout the house, so it is easy to figure everything out. Everything is extremely high end and well maintained. The outdoor space is simply glorious - we spent so much time out there. The large washer and dryer were a wonderful perk. The kitchen was simply to die for. You could feed an army from it. There is a large outdoor grill, and a huge hot tub.
The furniture, beds, and sheets were comfortable, the bath towels were oversized, there were thoughtful night lights everywhere. So many niceties, I just can't name them all.
I simply can't imagine wanting anything more than this house offers.
The owners are very responsive, and checked on us twice (by phone) to ensure everything was good. I can't think of anything negative to say about this home.
Ideal Boston Area Locale
My family of 11 (adult siblings, mom and dad, and nieces and nephew) stayed here for our family vacation. It was convienently located outside of Boston and near other must-see spots (Salem, Lexington, and Concord). It was easy to get to and use the commuter rail at Winchester Center to visit Boston and a driveable distance to surrounding areas.
The house was comfortable (thank goodness for the AC with the extreme heat) for all of us to have plenty of room and we loved the patio.
We would recommend this home for mutiple families looking to explore the Boston area.
The house was just as described online and was a perfect home base for our family gathering and for exploring Boston.
Excellent vacation home
Excellent size for a large family. What a beautiful home. The home was clean and well appointed. Had a great time and would recommend this home without caveat.
Enjoy the comforts of this upscale home as your base to explore all that Boston and New England have to offer.
Winchester is the closest, nice suburb north of Boston. Our home is nearly adjacent to the 2000 acre Middlesex Fells state forest/reservation and also very close to the 2 major highways (I-93 & Route 128) so you can get anywhere very quickly. The commuter rail departs from town center for just 2 stops to North Station in Boston's financial district.
Winchester has 20 excellent public outdoor tennis courts & a public indoor tennis center, a public Borggaard Beach & children's waterpark (freshwater), sailing at nearby Spot Pond, nearby public golf courses, and fantastic beginner & advanced mountain biking & hiking in the Middlesex Fells reservation.
Peaceful, beautiful, yet vibrant setting with great proximity to all that Boston has to offer.
Southern Maine is also very near & dear to us. We spend a lot of time 90 minutes north in Biddeford Pool, ME which is just north of Kennebunkport (former President Bush's summer compound).
