HOME OF THE WEEK: A Holliston house with a secret garden and expensive deck on the market for $939,000 – News – MetroWest Daily News, Framingham, MA

HOLLISTON — Lush lawns, a secret garden and large pergola over an expansive deck are just a few of the outdoor delights found with this gracious 12-room contemporary at 44 Pond View Road.

The 4,800 square foot home is listed with Maryann Clancy of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Commonwealth Real Estate for $939,000.

“The deck and grounds on this property are spectacular. You feel like you are in a park or garden; it’s very private,” Clancy said. “Additionally, it’s got a lot of square footage, but the living areas are comfortable.”

The indoor features include a two-story foyer with etched glass entry door and window lights, hardwood floors with custom inlays, high-end custom carpentry, and a stunning two-story family room.

The family room is warmed by a brick faced fireplace and brightened by a dramatic wall of windows that includes French doors leading to the deck.

The kitchen was recently updated by a master carpenter who added many custom architectural features, such as a unique surround for the gas stove and built-in bookcases. The heart of the home also features stone countertops, a center island and dining area.

The cook’s kitchen opens into a dining room ready to entertain large crowds or small, intimate gatherings.

A living room with bay window seat, a library and a laundry complete the first floor.

Dual staircases lead to the second floor and a Juliet balcony overlooking the family room.

Owner Loretta Lee said her favorite feature of the home is on the second floor.

“The master bedroom is my favorite because it’s so big and comfortable. It’s so very relaxing,” she said.

The master includes an ensuite with a jet tub beneath a picture window with stunning views of the property.

The second floor also holds three more bedrooms and a full bath.

A finished, walkout basement has a playroom, sitting room and wine cellar.

The property is located just minutes from Route 495 and the Weston Pond Recreation Area. These eight acres of conservation land is known for its trails.
