A Natick home that takes cues from a 1930s garage is sure to garner plenty of attention.

Built in 2014, the 3,000-square-foot home at 221 Oak St. bucks all tradition. The cobblestone driveway leads to the home, which has a textured exterior, a 1,000-square-foot living space, and a 2,000-square-foot climate-controlled custom garage.

“Every detail of this home is so substantial,” said Maura Rodino of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Commonwealth Real Estate, who shares the listing with Ross Rodino.

Immaculately maintained to house a car collection, the garage features five bays, as well as a two-post lift, several workbenches, a variety of built-in cabinets, and a half bathroom. A custom paint palate was curated to complement the time and era of which the space is reminiscent. There’s also several workspaces for the cars and a general work desk area. One of the most special features is the bar off the garage, tucked behind red sliding doors. A copper ceiling and recessed lighting shine over a lively oak bar that’s ideal for entertaining guests.

Move into the comfortable living area, where 9-foot ceilings tower over a variety of built-in bookcases and cabinets. Big windows create a bright space over hardwood floors, intricate crown molding, wainscoting, and exceptional design by Patrick Ahearn. In the kitchen, Carrara marble counters and a farmhouse sink complement quartersawn oak cabinetry, while bar seating provides space for hanging out with friends and family.

The bedroom, which features a built-in bed with handcrafted drawers that comes with the home, also has two double closets, columns, and a cozy window seat.

“You don’t need a chest of drawers, because there is a window seat that has built-ins underneath and the bed has built-ins. The bed stays, so you have ample closet space throughout this entire living area,” Ross Rodino said.

The home’s outdoor space is also exceptional. In addition to the flat, grassy front yard, the granite patio out back is perfect for summer evenings. There’s also a custom storage shed surrounded by manicured grounds on 0.03-acre lot, but it’s the peaceful living area that has surprised many prospective buyers thus far.

“When you’re in here, it’s very quiet. … You can’t hear out into the garage or to the street. When you do come in here, it is a wow factor every time,” Maura Rodino said.
