Magnificent, Exquisite, Elegant, Well-Crafted, Enchanting.
These are just some of the words that I would use to describe the new offering at 80 Burr Drive in Needham. As a realtor, it is so exciting to go to a home for the first walk-through. I always try to imagine what the home may look like inside, but there are always surprises. It is these surprises that keep real estate interesting. Each home is unique and built or designed with the owner’s vision or personal touch.
There is nothing more exciting then walking into a home that immediately takes your breath away. Upon entering 80 Burr Drive in Needham, I found myself drifting off to another place… a place where I was packing up and getting ready to move right into this masterpiece! Okay, so a girl can dream! But truthfully speaking, I was speechless — which is rare for me. I took my time, allowing my eyes to follow the millwork up the walls and around each room and doorway. This “smart house” looks brand new and smells brand new even though the occupancy permit was received in 2010.
This stately home gracefully sits atop a hill surrounded by a beautifully manicured landscape. The oversized windows and doors allow the natural light to flow throughout the house. The grandiose foyer is surrounded by windows, doors, millwork and built-ins. The beautiful built-ins start in the foyer but continue to the mudroom, family room and office. The designer kitchen is full of treasures: side-by-side Subzero Refrigerator and Freezer, an oversized island covered in caesarstone, Carrera marble across the kitchen counters, a Wolf 6 burner stove top and grill, and a gorgeous eat-in area surrounded by windows and french doors overlooking the bluestone patio and outdoor kitchen. The floor plan was well thought out and has a natural flow. For example, the 4 car garage is right off the kitchen for easy access, and the inviting family room is attached to the kitchen making entertaining easy. This house has two master bedrooms, one on the first floor and one on the second floor, offering flexibility to any homeowner.
Moving upstairs, the Master Suite is one-of-a-kind with a terrace, fireplace, hand cut calcutta marble floors in the bathroom, oversized closets, an a separate vanity area. These are only some of the features that give this room a wow-factor. The other four bedrooms on the second floor are wonderful sizes and each has their own bathroom. Let’s not leave out the oversized laundry room, a dream space. If you are not sold on this house yet, then let’s move to the lower level.
Walk-out the lower level to the most beautiful, expansive and level backyard. Just need to add some lines and you have yourself your very own football field or putting green! There is even a little hill off to the side which is screaming out for some sleds in the winter time. The main attraction in the lower level for me was the professional gym with a full bathroom. It was so nice that I thought about working out right then and there. It was bright, filled with all the necessary equipment and weights, and inviting. I am sure I would still come up with an excuse to skip my workout, but with the music jamming to a good workout beat, I must admit it was very enticing. Other amenities located on the lower level include a theater room, an art room, a playroom, an au pair suite and lots of storage of course.
So don’t miss your chance to own this spectacular home. You will sense the warmth, see the beauty and feel all the elegant custom features that make this home so special.
