Meticulous Mid-century Steeped In Privacy
Exclusively listed by Madonna & Phillips Group. Set back from a scenic country road in the desirable and quiet Moosehorn area of Roxbury, this meticulous mid-century modern residence is beautifully sited to harmonize with the surrounding landscape — standing at the pinnacle of the property at the end of a long private drive that passes a spring-fed pond. Built in 1956 and recently remodeled, the 2,800± square-foot home comprises 4 bedrooms and 3.1 baths, an attached 2-car garage, separate studio/remote office, an outdoor shower, and flagstone patio with gazebo overlooking the swimmable pond. The 3.24-acre property abuts 175 acres of Moosehorn Land Preserve and comprises a secondary structure with heating/cooling that currently serves as an elegant office/meeting space.
Massive granite slab steps lead you inside the house, which has an open and informal layout designed with glass-wrapped rooms to capture the surrounding nature. At the center of the house is the great room—a dramatic, combined living/dining space that feels bright and airy, thanks to the soaring vaulted ceilings and expansive floor-to-ceiling glasswork. The room offers multiple gathering areas suitable for large-scale entertaining and has just been renovated with brand new oakwood flooring and freshly painted walls. A gas fireplace is on the gabled end, where there’s a custom-built bar made of Roxbury granite that provides refrigerated storage for wine and more. Dual glass sliders offer easy access to the flagstone overlook patio with soul-soothing eastern views of the grounds and pond. There is also a powder room off the entry.
A sleek, modern kitchen is fitted with brand new granite counters and center island, and an eat-in breakfast bar which is open to the great room.
The sizeable master bedroom suite has its own wing on the main floor for privacy and boasts a living room-like feel with a vaulted ceiling, large sitting area, a generous walk-in closet fitted with custom built-ins, and sliders to the overlook patio. Opposite the hall is an ensuite guest bedroom featuring a shower/tub combination with glass door, custom tiling, and stonework. Two additional guest bedrooms—currently used as an office and an exercise room—are situated at the end of the hallway and share a full bath with fittings and finishes of equal quality.
The lower level boasts a freshly painted partial basement with a laundry area, sink, and folding/prep area.
The lush, zen-like property also offers a myriad of outdoor opportunities within walking distance to trails for hiking and cross-country skiing. This one is not to be missed. The perfect weekend retreat or a full-time haven in a private location with close access to local shops, galleries, and restaurants. The town of Roxbury offers breathtaking natural beauty and New England small-town charm — and a lifestyle like no other. 90 minutes from NYC, minutes to Steep Rock and Mine Hill Preserves, Lake Waramaug, the historic town of Washington, and New Preston’s destination shopping village.
