Tucked away on 2.45 acres in the northwest is this contemporary house by local starchitects Bates-Masi. According to the listing, "The front of the house has a screen of mahogany dowels and copper tubes; when it rains it's like looking through a waterfall with a misty rainbow reflecting from the copper tubes." Sounds good. Inside the 6000sf house, natural materials and lots of the glass make for a peaceful, relaxed feeling. There are five bedrooms and 4.5 baths. Outside, there are pretty gardens, a pool, tennis court, and putting green.
