CAMBRIDGE (town of Oakland): Architect-designed contemporary home on
thirty three arboretum-like acres, totally fenced with a barn ready for your
horses, llamas, what-have- you! Seldom does one come across a property that has
been so meticulously maintained: the interior and exterior as well as the barn
and grounds are all impeccable!
The home, designed and built twenty years ago for the current (only) owners
by architect Helmut Ajango, features a cantilevered deck off the great room,
interesting curves and angles in the fireplace, built-ins, and flooring,
numerous windows, all looking out to the picturesque rolling landscape with
breathtaking oaks and a pond pure enough for your horses to drink from!
The approach to the home is impressive. The driveway splits, allowing
vehicles to either enter the garage or to park adjacent to the charming bridge
access to the main level. The main level would be quite easy for anyone needing
handicapped access: master bedroom and bath and sleek new kitchen plus living
and dining with doors to deck are all one level. The lower level, also at
grade, has an enormous bedroom which could be two bedrooms, plus a guest room
and a full bath, a large laundry/mudroom, and a 20 ft by 25 ft family room
which is currently used as a calligraphy studio. All of these rooms are
accessible from the oversized two car garage with attached workshop.
The mechanicals are all in excellent shape. The well and septic have been
well-maintained, as one would expect.
The barn, complete with two resident kitties housed in heated (!) Cat house
is ready for horses. A fenced riding arena is adjacent. The owners three grown
daughters have `papered' a wall of the barn with their blue ribbons won in
teenage equestrian competitions! Plenty of space for animals, tack, bay,
buggies, or a barn dance!
Schools: Cambridge. Call me for additional information regarding possibility of
parceling off additional building sites.
