Tucked away off historic Music Street, convenient to everything yet quiet and serene, this antique house and extraordinary gardens are set on peaceful Looks Pond. With climbing roses, espaliered fruit trees, cherry blossoms and numerous perennial flowerbeds this property is a sight that "Monet would have loved" (Boston Globe). The one-of-a kind home is a renovated barn and attached guest apartment which include numerous whimsical yet classic architectural details including a sunken living room with a wall of built in bookshelves, refinished wide pine floors throughout, beautiful stained glass windows and a cozy fireplace. Relax in the generous master bedroom, catch up on work in the study or entertain guests in your terracotta floored dining room which faces the masterfully designed grounds. Inspired by English cottage settings and Italian terrace gardens, this pond front retreat is truly unlike any other. Enjoy your mornings on the beautiful stone patio overlooking the pond, wander across the footbridge to your own private island or marvel at the colorful blooms from your light filled sunroom. This property is a must see.
