From the moment you lay eyes on 10 Irene, you know this home is something so special! Custom designed and built from the ground up, this exciting contemporary is a literal dream come true! The sellers envisioned a home that fits perfectly into this private setting, not only taking in all of the nature surrounding it while minimizing the impact of the home using solar and sustainable materials. The result is a true masterpiece and a home like no other! The location is ideal - tucked away up a private knoll and the end of a newer dead-end neighborhood, just a short walk to town and access to the extensive trail system that Bedford has, including the Narrow Gauge Trail connecting to downtown and ultimately the Minuteman Bikeway. There are multiple areas to enjoy the beautiful and private setting here-; the extensive hardscape offers multiple patios (and no lawn to fertilize and mow!) and we love the screened-in porch. Step inside and immediately fall in love with a sprawling Great Room. The 13-14 foot ceilings set the tone. At one end is the beautiful custom stone fireplace, and the wall of glass doors allows views and access to the patio and rear yard. The unique stairway with cable railings graces the rear. Adjacent is the custom kitchen, an amazing and energizing space to cook and entertain! The windows are just amazing, and the natural light floods this space throughout the day! White cabinets and an oversized cherry island allow for plenty of storage and workspace. The countertops are honed leather granite - timeless and meant to mimic soapstone without the upkeep! Stainless steel Thermador appliances will please the cooks, as will the walk-in pantry. This wing of the home also has the huge mudroom, access to the 3 car garage (heated, with dog wash station!), and a studio/playroom above as well. A closet space here has been roughed for an additional bath should the need arise. Heading to the main part of the home, you will find a coveted first-floor suite. This has a stunning custom bathroom and 2 walk-in closets. Head upstairs here to find 3 additional bedrooms, including another suite with the coolest, a massive window - what a view to wake up to every day!! The 2 other bathrooms share a full bath, and all have great closets and hardwood floors. Offering the perfect work-from-home scenarios, there is another private studio/office at this end of the home, with more of those fabulous, oversized windows to take in the yard and natural light! A bookshelf here is actually hidden access to awesome storage – there are many of these cool and thoughtful details! The lower level is a full walk-out and offers great possibilities for an in-law-type setup. Currently enjoyed as a media room, and workout room, and by night a Murphy Bed can be lowered to accommodate guests, and they have their own private bathroom here as well. The rest of the lower lever offers workshop space and tons of storage, and there is a connection back to the garage for ease of access. With room for multiple generations, working from home, gym and media spaces, and just beautiful and captivating living spaces, 10 Irene truly has everything you need! Enjoy a Vermont-like setting yet moments to all that Bedford has to offer, including Whole Foods, Starbucks, Bedford Farms, and top schools- and just an overall wonderful community as well!!
