Welcome to 15 Cherokee Road. On this quiet, manicured residential enclave of elegant family homes, 20 minutes from Boston, yet located on a 4.5 acre pond with a PRIVATE DOCK FOR SWIMMING, ICE-SKATING AND FISHING… this fine custom home will absolutely delight you! Influenced by the iconic styles of famed New England architect, Robert M. Stern, the façade of this 10,500 sq. ft. custom home is red-cedar shingles with gorgeous hand-cut South Bay quartzite stone that wraps around both sides of the house. Two magnificent 35 foot-high, lighted chimneys are simply stunning and are capped with ornamental tile. The front of the house has a 5-foot arched and columned porch leading to a 32-foot high signature entry tower, and the impressive double main-entry doors are made of custom distressed red oak with raised grain and hand-crafted leaded glass viewing panels. The 50-year TL architectural 50- year warranty roof shingles system was installed in 2016, with copper flashing throughout the hipped-roofs and valleys of all three wings. Meticulously and thoughtfully landscaped, you will enjoy lush plantings and flowers every season of the year, fed by an irrigation system that runs from the spectacular pond in your back yard. Additionally, the extensive blue stone hardscaping includes areas for an in-ground gunite hot tub, a built-in barbeque area and a gas fire pit… all overlooking the ever-changing scenes of the pond and showcasing all types of wildlife and fowl, including blue heron, and many types of fish. The large side yard is a perfect playground for children.The front entry leads into the stunning 28-foot, 2-story foyer with a motorized, double-tiered chandelier, and an excellent design that allows for sweeping viewing corridors throughout the entire first floor. The overall interior style is Mediterranean: all the walls have a Spanish stucco finish with soaring arch-ways and well-placed Tuscan columns as well as back-lit display areas. All entry-ways are divided by beveled glass doors and the front rooms all have flooring of antiqued tumbled marble, set in mud-set tile. All interior doors are an impressive 8-feet high. Ceiling soffits are 9-feet and tray ceilings are 10-feet.The floor plan is exceptional for both family life and entertaining of both intimate dinner parties and large family-get-togethers. The formal fireplaced living room with music nook is gorgeous, and the game room and dining room overlooking the pond insures enjoyment for every activity. The study is nicely separated from the rest of the rooms to afford quietude. The heart of the home is a beautiful, large French Provincial kitchen, open to but nicely divided by a custom, granite-topped buffet cabinet, leading to a huge fireplaced family room with a full-service wet bar. Both rooms have 200-year old reclaimed dark oak flooring, and the kitchen section flooring is heated.The kitchen is a true chef’s dream… perfectly laid out with custom furniture-grade cabinetry, 5/4” granite counter tops, a large center-island with a stunning custom wrought-iron pot rack under an up-lit coffer and all high-end appliances including double Thermador ovens and warming drawer, a double Sub Zero reach-in freezer and refrigerator, a 6-burner Wolf cooktop, and a Kitchen aid compactor and dishwasher. The separate walk-in pantry offers more storage and the built-in chef’s desk area is perfect for cookbooks and menu-planning. The grand stairwell is adjacent to a two-story viewing window, affording you views of the old Japanese Maple tree outside. The stairwell features an attractive oval pattern that progressively fans to the bottom, and is cut with quarter-sawn oak on the treads and handrail, with an ornamental hand-forged wrought iron decorative railing system.
