One-of-a-kind. That is the only phrase that describes this stately colonial on Quarry Rd. This 44 year-old property was custom built for the original and sole owners by renowned Master Building Ray Brown, and judging from their extensive 44 year stay, Brown got everything right. Also, if any savvy potential homebuyer has done their homeowork, they are likely aware that these unique homes do not enter the real estate market often and when they do, they are not there for long.
This home, located in the desirable Greenlodge neighborhood of Dedham, immediately displays its individuality with its sweet mauve exterior. The floor plan is uniquely designed to make the most of its nearly 2,000 square feet of living space with spacious dimensions on both levels. The first floor offers both a formal, fireplaced living room with a wall of built-ins, a dining room with a bay window and wainscoting and a cozy sitting room with a wood burning fireplace. There is also a family room with three skylights drenching the space with natural sunlight and direct access to the rear deck and a spacious eat-in kitchen for casual family dining.
There are three bedrooms on the second floor, including a master bedroom with a walk-in closet. Each of these rooms provides many of the charming, timeless yet always stylish characteristics found throughout the house.
Aside from its infamous designer and historical distinctiveness, this home's supplemental amenities further enhance the appeal of this home. It has recently received a new heating system and hot water tank and offers a two-car garage with an easily accessible storage area and water well.
Although this property has only been on the market for two weeks, it is unusual that word has not yet spread of this rare opportunity to purchase an original Brown design. His creations are legendary in property fabrication and if the longevity of occupancy of its current owners is an indication of the future, this home may not return to the open real estate market for a very long time.
