Tucked inside The Grove, a neighborhood of contemporary houses in Lexington, 351 North Emerson Road is a four-bed, three-bath home that’s on the market for the first time in 56 years. The price? $1.7 million.
Measuring 3,205 square feet, the Peacock Farm-style house was built in 1965, with several additions put on throughout the years. A distinctive driveway of crushed stone and concrete on the three-quarter-acre lot features burnt orange elements.
Step inside and onto the entryway’s slate floor, and continue up several steps to the home’s main level. It’s there you’ll find an open floor plan with a distinctive central beam, original to the house, running across the living room. A brick fireplace anchors the space, which is filled with natural light from sliders and geometric windows.
In the kitchen, geometry takes center stage: The space, the counters, and the island show of their curves. Rectangular casement windows line the kitchen’s outer curve — an electrical outlet under each one ready to serve the family’s culinary enthusiast.
The dining room features a wall of glass that looks out to a peaceful backyard of mature trees and plantings. A wall of built-ins completes the space. The dining room also serves as a connection to a screened-in porch with its own skylight.
Back inside, climb the stairs to the upper level, where you’ll find three bedrooms. Like the first level, the bright and sunny primary bedroom has a single wooden beam running through it. It also comes with a walk-in closet and an en-suite bath with dual sinks, an expansive glass shower, a skylight, and a deep soaking tub nestled by a window.
The home’s outdoor space is ideal for anyone looking for a private oasis. The 375-square-foot deck is reachable from two sets of sliding glass doors in the living area. There’s also access to the backyard from the home’s lower level, where you’ll also find a family room with a sliding glass door, a bedroom, and a full bath.
