ONE-OF-A-KIND UPDATED CONTEMPORARY IN TEWKSBURY TWP.
A modern design scheme and a variety of recent updates lend style and comfort to a fabulous contemporary sited on over five level and wooded acres in Tewksbury. Originally built in 1952 and extensively updated in 2015, this dramatic midcentury modern home showcases a timeless aesthetic throughout its four bedroom, two bath layout. Enhancing the property are a pond, stream, multi-level decks and a detached two-car garage outbuilding.
A long driveway approaches this welcoming home, which is set far back from a country road. Highlights of the sunny interior are stunning window walls framing lush views of the acreage, hardwood floors, airy cathedral ceilings, two brick fireplaces, skylights, exposed brickwork, recessed lights and neutral paint colors. Decking on the first and second floors underscores the home’s strong indoor-outdoor connection.
The tile-floored foyer with a brick wall, octagonal picture window and wood staircase introduces this unique home. Main floor spaces include a window-walled dining room anchored by a wood-burning brick wall fireplace. It also features wood floors, wood paneled walls and recessed lights. The open flow continues in the recently updated kitchen presenting wood cabinetry, a spacious breakfast bar counter center island topped in faux granite, and a collection of upper-end appliances such as a Samsung™ stainless steel refrigerator, Jenn-Air™ stove and oven and KitchenAid™ dishwasher. Just off the kitchen is a living room designed with wood floors, a long wall of windows, track lighting, three double closets and a door opening onto a free-form wood patio. Completing the first floor are three bedrooms, a full bath, plus laundry and utility rooms.
Upstairs, a family room is warmed by the glow of a soaring brick fireplace, while wood beamed cathedral ceiling with skylights, hardwood floors, a wall of windows and access to a small viewing deck are additional amenities. This level also contains an inviting master bedroom offering hardwood floors and wood panel ceiling. The master bath is reminiscent of a lodge-like spa with its wood plank walls and ceilings, tile floors and skylight. A jetted soaking tub and sink vanity are located in one part of this master bath, while a stall shower and commode are in an adjoining area.
Mechanical workings in the home include multiple zones of baseboard hot water propane-fired heat, private septic and well water.
