“ROSE HILL” in tewksbury celebrates the legacy
of a classic 18th century american home design
Widely recognized as a quintessential Early American home design, the center chimney Cape Cod style of architecture has been authentically replicated at “Rose Hill”, a distinctive property in Tewksbury. Built in 1979, the traditional appearance combines steep pitched rooflines finished in split cedar shakes, a façade of white cedar shingles, and dual brick chimneys. Inspired by Revolutionary-era homes, “Rose Hill” beautifully re-captures the warmth and simplicity of a circa 1760 residence.
Set on over three open and level acres of privacy far off a country road, the tranquil pond, lush perennial gardens, native plantings, stone walls and picket fences lend additional character. Inside, a gracious floor plan of four bedrooms and two-and-one-half baths is filled with natural light. Reproduction design elements include wide board pumpkin pine flooring, latched and pocket doors, bead board walls, built-ins, cupboards, three masonry fireplaces and select true divided light windows. A detached two-car garage and loft provides ample storage space.
The enclosed three-season, brick floored front porch creates an excellent first impression. This entry porch opens to a vestibule featuring historically-accurate brick flooring. Gathering spaces on the main floor include a dining room anchored by a wood-burning fireplace, a living room incorporating crown moldings, a china closet and French doors to a redwood deck, and a family room where the focal point is a walk-in brick fireplace. Each of these rooms offers flooring of wide board pumpkin pine.
Remodeled in 1995 by European Country Kitchens, the chef-friendly kitchen presents a granite-topped center island, a masonry brick fireplace, bead board cabinets with several birds-eye glass upper doors and 18-inch extra wide board pumpkin pine floors. Upper-end appliances include a six-burner Viking™ propane gas cook-top, Thermador™ electric wall convection oven, wood-paneled KitchenAid™ refrigerator, Maytag™ wood-paneled dishwasher and Sharp™ convection/microwave oven. Truly a heart-of-the-home space, the kitchen also presents a breakfast area, walk-in pantry and a combination of recessed and under-cabinet lighting.
The first floor is completed by a powder room updated in 2004 and a gracious master suite added to the home in 1995. This spacious master bedroom presents an octagonal tray ceiling, sunny bay window, custom carpeting, French doors to the deck and two closets. Two additional closets enhance a master dressing area. In the master bath, a double sink cherry vanity is topped in porcelain tile, while a porcelain tile shower with frameless glass door, jetted Jason™ tub and pumpkin pine wide board flooring are harmonious features.
Upstairs, the three bedrooms are appointed with wide board pumpkin pine flooring. Additionally, the second floor offers a sitting room with a built-in twin bed and bookcases, and an updated full bath comprised of tumbled marble shower enclosed by a frameless glass door as well as a jetted tub.
A full, unfinished walkout basement is another amenity in this gracious Cape Cod. Lush acreage surrounding this secluded heritage home can be viewed from a redwood deck or bluestone patio overlooking the open, level property’s evergreens, perennial gardens, Japanese maples and burning bushes.
Mechanical systems were extensively updated in the past years and include multiple zones of oil-fired forced hot air heating, central air conditioning, a whole house attic fan, Aprilaire humidifiers, private septic and well water.
