Weston MA does not have a whole lot of European Sensibility, Contemporary Living in the many beautiful center entrance colonials that dot the landscape in the town. Contemporary homes have a different feel to them. 63 Westcliff Road in Weston is a showcase of this living. Designed by noted architect Maurice K Smith and built in 1968 this home stands the test of time in providing unique living space and a connection to the landscape from every room. Built in the “Block” style of architecture each individual room has it’s own unique connection to the landscape in which it is place. Each bedroom has it’s own balcony. The dining room is awash with light throughout the day because it has windows on both sides.
A screened in porch is attached to the casual family room off the kitchen for quiet cocktails nestled into the trees, or listening to the Red Sox battle for supremacy throughout the season. A sound system upgrade throughout the house and outside was added by the current owners. So too, the lighting system and electrical system was completely upgraded by the owners during their stewardship of this wonderful home.More upgrades, like the kitchen appliances, a wine cellar and a fully finished exercise room and play room in the basement make this home feel much larger than it’s square footage.
Sunday March 11 from 1-3PM we will have an Open House. This home was featured by both the Boston Globe and the Boston Herald as the Home of the Week for good reason. Living in a home with such design and style is not for everyone. The sensibility is more European than New England. This is a home that is not like your neighbors, but one that can reflect your own sensibility and design. Block architecture is described as the design of each room separately so that it has the best light from outside, the best placement on the landscape and fully function in and of it’s own. When all the rooms are finished with their specific design then the architect goes about putting it all together in a cohesive manner. What happens then is that the homes outside is not block like as with Center Entrance Colonials. The form fits the landscape in a way that you can view out and view back in to your home in differing ways through the house. 63 Westcliff Road is worth the visit, come to the Open House this Sunday March 11 from 1-3 and see for yourself.
