We’re unsure about this place. The exteriors are lovely: two acres of beautifully planted grounds, with a gunite infinity pool and spa, decking and a fire pit, all overlooking Mill Pond. There’s even a boules court and a private dock.
The house was built in 2008 but it looks very 80s post modern to us. One nice feature is the barn-style pavilion by the pool with folding glass doors, perfect for parties. The rest of the house is just underwhelming: it’s possible the interior design is putting us off. The house is a good size at 6700 square feet, with six bedrooms, seven full and two half baths. The bedrooms seem to have views of the pond with private balconies, which is pleasant. The lower level includes a gym, and there’s space for a home theater; there’s also an elevator to each floor and a separate prep kitchen.
All in all, we think the price of $7.25M is going to have to come down a bit, despite the nice features of the house and the pretty gardens. What say you?
