The beautifully renovated and expanded Wellesley Farms brick Tudor at 118 Hundreds Road showcases a gorgeous blend of original artisan craftsmanship and an equally fine custom remodel for modern family living. Exquisite millwork, high ceilings, arched doorways and gleaming hardwood floors blend with stylish finishes, designer décor, smart technology and amenities.

The 6,000-square-foot house offers four floors of well-designed living space and a prime location close to commuter routes, train and shopping.

Lynn Donahue, Donna Maley and Stephanie Burns of the DMB Team/Compass are marketing the six-bedroom house on a professionally landscaped 0.69-acre lot for $3,245,000.

Meticulously maintained, and with improvements from roof to basement, the house has updated plumbing and electrical systems, new HVAC and ductwork, refinished hardwood floors, and many other upgrades including a high-end chef’s kitchen, new butler’s pantry, laundry, gym and bathrooms.

The brick house has a classic Tudor timber and stucco gable, a slate roof and copper gutters. A substantial wood door opens to a vestibule with black-and-white stone flooring and a foyer with a gracious staircase and access to the kitchen via a hall with a half-bath.

The dining room is to the right and has a beautifully crafted glass-front china cabinet and door to a butler’s pantry equipped with a wet bar, wine and beverage fridges and a second dishwasher.

The living room, to the left of the foyer, is an elegant beamed ceiling room with a gas fireplace and wood mantle carved with a garland and rosette motif. An arched doorway flanked by decorative shelves leads to a sun-drenched open-plan family room and kitchen. French doors adjacent to the entry open to a marvelous front-to-back screened porch with a tile floor and beadboard ceiling.

The family room has a gas fireplace with a new limestone mantel and excellent natural light from a skylight, two large windows, a massive Palladian window and French doors that open to a deck. Steps from the spacious deck lead to a herringbone-pattern brick patio bordered by stone walled gardens and a large, level lawn screened by mature trees.

The sparkling white chef’s kitchen has custom cabinets with generous pantry space, quartz counters and an oversize island with bar seating. Top appliances are by Wolf, Sub-Zero and Miele and include a six-burner-with-griddle cooktop with pot-filler, double ovens, and a coffee station. The mudroom has a side entrance, door to a two-car garage and a laundry room with sliders to the deck. A staircase here leads to a two-bedroom au pair suite with a full bath.

The second floor has a window seat on the landing, three family bedrooms which share a full bath and a master suite with a his-and-her-size walk-in closet, a marble bath with skylight, soaking tub, shower and separate wc. The third floor offers a playroom and two flexible rooms that could be used as home office and a schoolroom for remote learning.

Bonus space on the lower level offers a gym with rubber floor, a playroom with a wood-burning fireplace, a half-bath and good storage.

The house has gas heat, central air, Sonos and a hardwired security system.
