The ornate iron gate at 229 Hollis St. opens onto a driveway and a series of walkways in a contrast of black and white that only hints at how ornate this Colonial contemporary is.
Sculptures and a fountain beckon to a home that Joleen Rose of ERA Key Realty Services listed for $985,000 on Jan. 20. Built in 2005, the property has four bedrooms, four full bathrooms, and one half bathroom. It measures 4,668 square feet on 1.05 acres.
The home is filled with murals, inside and out. A two-story foyer with a chandelier presents a main floor with an open layout, hardwood floors, and hand-painted murals of angels. This level also includes a sitting room, dining and living areas, and a kitchen with granite counters and a long island, as well as a master with a double tray ceiling, temperature-controlled closet, and a bathroom with a glass shower and marble double vanity.
Upstairs, there are two bedrooms with hardwood floors, walk-in closets, and en-suite bathrooms.
The walk-out basement offers the laundry room, an office, and a suite that has a kitchen, a living/dining room, and a bedroom with a fireplace. Plus, a three-season room offers access to a backyard with a marble compass inlay on the granite patio, a granite grill top, a heated in-ground pool lined with statuary, and a deck.
The home also features a heated driveway, a two-car heated garage with a second laundry room, and a surveillance system.
