With its 8-foot-high mahogany front door and high ceilings, this home is something even 7-foot Celtics center Vincent Poirier could comfortably navigate.

No one has ever lived in the 11 Mansfield Road property, which was custom-built for owners who had to move unexpectedly.

“Someone will reap the rewards of their hard work, detail, and the exhaustive efforts they put into it,” listing agent Sandra Lynch of Hammond Residential Real Estate’s Kennedy Lynch Team said. “Someone else will be very lucky to get that.”

The care that went into the details is clear from the millwork to the gorgeous lighting. The home’s foundation was dug out so the basement windows are full height and allow in plenty of natural light. The cabinets and closets are custom. A surround-sound system allows users to listen to different music in each room or group the speakers for larger gatherings.

The house was built by Stonehedge Developments, a company that designs, builds, and remodels luxury homes in metro Boston.

Four of the home’s spacious high-ceilinged bedrooms are on the second floor, including the master, which boasts a fireplace, a walk-in closet, and a bath with radiant-heat flooring. The fifth bedroom is a suite on the lower level. The lower level also features a gym — with a four-person sauna — and a media room with a bar and kitchenette.

“It doesn’t feel like you’re in a basement at all,” Lynch said. “It’s a great space for entertaining.”

Lynch said the neighborhood is fully of young families with children who regularly walk or bike to school. “It’s really a trick-or-treat neighborhood,” she explained.

The home has five bedrooms, 4.5 baths, and a two-car garage, and it sits on 0.23 of an acre.  It is listed for $2,224,000.
