Proudly presenting a hallmark Arlington home! This is a rare and exciting opportunity to call the coveted Kelwyn Manor neighborhood your own! The Manor is one of Arlington's most distinctive neighborhoods. You will come for the conveniences (moments off Rt 2 at Lake Street) and will want to stay forever for the community and amenities. There is a neighborhood park and beach area that host many events throughout the year. It's like being on vacation all year round!
107 Spy Pond was custom built in 2007 and has every feature you could dream of. We love the story of this home as well. The current owners had lived in the neighborhood for years and watched this gorgeous home be constructed. When it hit the market a few years later, they jumped at the chance to call it their own. Kewlyn Manor is that kind of place - you don't want to leave once you experience the magic!
The 2 story mahogany front porch welcomes you in. The open floor plan inside is just what you were hoping for. The family room features custom built-ins flanking the wood-burning fireplace with a gas line in place if you prefer to convert! The coffered ceiling, custom wainscoting, beautiful archway and recessed lighting enhance this space. The dining room beyond features a triple window with built-in window seating, coffered ceiling, stunning mill-work and a great wine fridge and bar area that transitions perfectly into the kitchen.
About the kitchen, WOW! This kitchen has heart AND soul! The custom cherry cabinets, with soft close and full extension features, are topped with granite counters. The stainless steel appliances are all high end and meant to service the serious chef. They include a Viking 6 burner variable BTU gas range, Viking built-in fridge with French door, GE double-oven and dishwasher. The custom built pantry is one of our favorite hidden features! The two tier island is sensible for hiding your work space during a party and has a prep sink as well as seating for 4 to keep you company!
The ceilings throughout the first floor are 9 feet high. The tiled mudroom space provides direct access to the kitchen, garage and a full bath. There is a first floor laundry room in this area as well, offering both gas and electric hookups for the dryer and a sink. The over-sized garage has a TON of storage space, hot/cold water lines, central vacuum and a gas line for future heat if desired. The exterior is convenient and practical, as is.
Head upstairs and you will find 4 bedrooms on the second floor and more! The master suite is likely to impede on your work day as you will NOT want to leave. It has everything you wish for including a walk-in closet with built-ins, a private office or nursery, and a luxurious private bath, featuring granite vanity with double sinks, soaking tub with jets, and separate shower. The prized spot is the private balcony off the master, accessed by French doors and offering amazing views of Spy Pond. We imagine stealing away here with your morning coffee or watching the sun set at night with a glass of Pinot Noir in hand.
Another space offering amazing views is the unusual and awesome second floor Great Room. Custom soaring windows allow for amazing light and views of Spy Pond. The owners have loved this superb room for entertaining, watching the Super Bowl or celebrating a Holiday!
Your guests will love having the third floor all to themselves as it's the perfect getaway space. A private bathroom and walk-in closet create the feel of a secondary master suite. There is a ton of storage available here as well.
The lower level was custom designed to offer year-round party hosting opportunity! There is a built-in bar area, room for a pool table, a wall of built-ins and the perfect spot for a TV above. An additional bathroom with a shower creates a great option to use some of the lower level as a home gym, as the current owners have. This bathroom has warming radiant heat in the floor as well. A full staircase with a regular door (vs bulkhead) provides easy access for guests and residents.
The yard is fenced with just enough space to garden, play and host BBQ's yet is low maintenance. You might even just spend more time on that front porch due to the amazing unobstructed views of Spy Pond. To think you can live SO close to Cambridge/Boston, yet can enjoy the peace and tranquility of the pond is a rare setting indeed. The year round neighborhood events create a sense of community that we all crave these days. See below for a printable summer park schedule including neighborhood picnics and movie nights!
There is so much "behind the scenes" here as well. Every system and component was carefully chosen and is top of the line. The siding is Hardie Plank with a 30 year warranty, the roof 30 year architectural shingles, and the Marvin windows. The heat is provided by a Weil Mclean gas fired hydro air boiler, with 4 zones. There are 3 zones of central air and 300 amps of electric. See below for a printable list of all systems and utilities.
