Craftsmanship and design combine with state-of-the-art construction in this four-story home — built by Silva Brothers Construction and designed by Bechtel, Frank, Erickson architects — in one of Lexington, Massachusetts’ finest neighborhoods, Merriam Hill.
“It has an aura of grandness, impeccable taste, and a quality rare in newer homes,” says listing agent Lester Savage of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Commonwealth Real Estate, who is listing the property for $3.75 million. “In particular, the kitchen and family room have extraordinary warmth and intimacy, with a heart-of-the-home design.”
The lower level rooms include a play stage, wine grotto, media room and playroom.
“The home emits comfort with a south-facing eating area overlooking a tranquil, spacious yard and bluestone patio area,” says Savage.
The estate has easy access to Lexington Center, town conservation areas, and the Minuteman Bikeway.

On 4.4 acres on a pristine hilltop in Beverly, Massachusetts, this stunning 6,000-square-foot Colonial revival is surrounded by manicured lawns, meadows, extensive gardens and stone patios.
The home features six bedrooms, three full and two half baths, four wood-burning fireplaces, and many Victorian-era architectural details, including detailed moldings and plaster ceiling medallions. Additionally, the wraparound covered porches are a perfect gathering spot overlooking the outdoor garden spaces
“This home is elegant, but not overly formal,” says Patricia White of Century 21 North East who is listing the property for $2.299 million. “It has a feel for a country estate with accessibility of a neighborhood home — perfect for a growing family.”
