A new “modern farmhouse” designed by a firm featured in Architectural Digest holds court on a two-lot property in Wellesley. 

McAlpine, which has offices in New York, Nashville, Atlanta, and Montgomery, Ala., designed 1 & 11 Kenilworth Road. The house sits on a 0.83-acre parcel, while the second lot is 0.71 of an acre.

“It’s a beautiful mix of being a house that would be incredible to entertain at, but is also very warm and can perfectly fit any family,” said the listing agent, Traci Shulkin of the Shulkin Wilk Group at Compass. 

With a price tag of $11 million, the property features a white brick exterior and a covered outdoor dining area with a fireplace looking out to stone walls, patios, and a tennis court, according to the listing. Heated walkways and an in-ground hot tub amp up the luxury.

Inside, a tall entryway with an 11-foot ceiling and lacquered beams that “just glisten” welcomes you into the home, Shulkin said. A three-tiered chandelier lights a staircase to a balcony overlooking the living room.

Totaling 10,099 square feet of living space, the home presents an open layout and floor-to-ceiling windows that fill the home with natural light. 

The “farmhouse style and modern aesthetics blend effortlessly with bold design elements and the finest of finishes,” Shulkin said in the listing. 

The property is a six-minute drive to downtown Wellesley. “The best part is that it’s close to town,” Shulkin said. “It’s a house that’s part of the community.” 

It features six bedrooms with en-suite baths, a total of eight full bathrooms, one half bathroom, a three-car garage, and a finished basement with media and exercise rooms and a playroom.

The second buildable lot would be ideal for a yoga studio, car barn, or a pool, according to the listing.
