6 Wellesley Drive
6 Wellesley Dr Careful consideration was given to the 5+ acre hilltop lot, so the designers could create a harmonious blend of the land flowing directly through the interior of the home, and out to the glorious decks and reflective pool. This was achieved through the brilliant use of natural elements of stone, slate and copper and water features, and galvanized steel, which was used as a contrast. And so the vision became a reality, as a result of the artistic passion of the owners, and a team of renowned designers, who were able to create this spectacular piece of art. The design of this extraordinar...y home was led by a leading architect, Tim Ward, AIA, together with interior designer, Agnes Bourne, ASID. Edward Cansino was commissioned to create a custom lighting design, and electronically controlled skylights. Bob Clark completed the masterpiece with natural landscape design. The main structure is roughly 7,730 square feet, with an additional 377 square feet of finished storage, on the lower level. Throughout the home, inside as well as out, there are many unique design elements. Most rooms have exterior access to a deck, the pool and spa, and have walls of glass, open to the spectacular views. The home was built in 1996 by a commercial contractor with a steel frame and approximately 45 piers into bedrock. There are fire sprinklers throughout. The plumbing and electrical were also built to commercial standards. The entire home is wired for sound. There is also Cat-5 wiring, 4-zone heating and cooling, a 6-circuit generator for emergency power outages. On the exterior, there is extensive drainage surrounding the home, as well as throughout the property. The landscaping is natural in design, and water tolerant. Currently fitted with raised planting beds in the side yard, there is certainly tremendous opportunity to repurpose this portion of the 5 acre property and create an expansive lawn area, with many possibilities, to include a cozy fireplace and patio area, as well as sports court and a viewing deck. There are four bedrooms, four full baths, and two half baths. The guest house is 600 square feet with one bedroom, one full bath, a full kitchen and living room. There are two 75 gallon water heaters to service the home and a circulating hot water pump.
