A Modern Classic in Devon for $975K
This architect-designed beauty combines traditional elegance with a modern floor plan that offers space for every need.
Love the classic elegance of traditional Colonial design but hate the regimented formality of the ubiquitous center-hall layout?
This is the home you were looking for.
This spacious modern Colonial has all the traditional style notes — wainscoting, crown moldings, turned dowels, wood fireplace mantles — but incorporates them into a decidedly modern floorplan that includes a open, flowing main living space.
Credit architect Ann Capron with this most felicitous achievement. Builder EP Mahoney improved on it with a great room/bonus room addition with a more contemporary feel.
Up front, on either side of the foyer, you will find the traditional living room with fireplace and formal dining room. But beyond the foyer in the rear is a dramatic two-story-high family room with a skylit cathedral ceiling, a fireplace and a second-floor loft overlooking it via a balcony. A bar in the family room serves as a transitional element to the well-equipped eat-in kitchen.
This home also has two master suites, one a spacious first-floor ensemble and a second one upstairs. The second floor contains two more bedrooms, a hall bath and a bonus room that can also be accessed via stairs from the great room below. The bonus room contains a walk-in closet and could serve as a rec room, home office or even in-law suite thanks to its separate stairwell entrance.
The spacious backyard features an attractive flagstone patio and a charming playhouse. And if you’re a horse fan, you’ll love watching the carriages parade past your front door when the Devon Horse Show rolls around every spring. There’s a flagstone porch in front where you can take in the spectacle.
This home is conveniently located a short distance from Devon Regional Rail station and the Devon Yard shopping district under development.
