For hardy New Englanders who are tired of shoveling their driveways and front walks all winter, this home at 33 Lyman Road in Brookline will make all that drudgery a thing of the past.
Listed for $8,995,000, the seven-bedroom home has a heating system underneath its driveway, patio, and all other hardscapes.
It’s a dream come true, and a reality for the few. It makes a walk down the driveway not as frigidly unpleasant and a wintertime dip in the hot tub an easy feat.
If that isn’t enough, the home features two basketball courts – one each inside and outside – a pool adjacent to the hot tub, a tennis wall, a fitness equipment area, a sauna, and a media area.
Built in 2015, the 10,128-square-foot home sits on 0.69 of an acre.
“While it’s just under an acre of land, it’s really thoughtfully used,” listing agent Brian Dougherty of Compass said. The owners spent seven figures on landscaping, he noted.
One of the owners enjoys renovating properties, Dougherty said, adding that she worked with the designers and architects on this home.
The home also includes a three-car garage, eight baths, and two half baths. There’s a dog-washing area with an elevated tub, as well as a charging station for an electric car.
John Pomp created the light fixture in the front of the home, Dougherty said. It’s a custom blown-glass piece that’s on an electric lift so that it can be lowered for cleaning or replacing light bulbs.
