Home of the Week: 5 Folsom's Pond Road in Wayland

This Wayland property offers its residents a unique and luxurious lifestyle both inside and out.

This spectacular 31-year-old Colonial in North Wayland is truly a residence for the entire family. Inside, it boasts over 3,000 square feet of living space throughout 10 spacious rooms with three finished floors supplying the perfect luxurious and versatile accommodations for an evolving family.

Outside, the younger ones (and young at heart) will be thrilled with the tree house that overlooks its many other recreational choices, including one and a half acres of a private, lush landscape, a heated in-ground pool, beautiful sunroom and deck.

Consideration for both formal and relaxed occasions were given equal weight with the fabrication and design of this home. The 13 x 27-square-foot family room is drenched in elegant white tones and includes a fireplace, French doors and exterior access while the 13 x 13-square-foot dining area is lined with enveloping golden walls and wainscoting for a simple, warm setting.

For down time and more relaxed entertaining, this level offers a number of choices, beginning with the fabulous 17 x 25-square-foot family room with rustic wood walls and exposed ceiling beams, a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace and wet bar.

The 13 x 22-square-foot eat-in chef's kitchen is nestled between this room and the bright, airy 15 x 22-square-foot expansive sunroom that also supplies a wet bar and boasts a skylit cathedral ceiling, custom built-ins and a French door that effortlessly guides residents to the rear deck and backyard. This floor also includes an intimate 14 x 17-square-foot office with a fireplace set in a wall of natural brick and custom floor-to-ceiling shelving.

The second level hosts a beautiful 13 x 18-square-foot master suite with a walk-in closet and a full, deluxe bath, three bedrooms at 13 x 15, 13 x 13 and 9 x 11 square feet and a full family bath. The supplemental 953-square-feet of living space in the finished basement is not included in the listed dimensions and enhances residents' leisure lifestyles with even more versatile opportunities. This lower level offers an 11 x 25-square-foot playroom, an 11 x 15-square-foot exercise room, an 8 x 9-square-foot mudroom and a 6 x 8-square-foot cedar closet.

This home and its outdoor grounds are not only attractive, but provides many conveniences and amenities to its owners. In addition to all the above mentioned benefits, it also presents a sprinkler system, a satellite dish, a fenced-in yard, central vacuum, four-zone heating and central air conditioning systems, high-end Energy Star appliances and a two-car attached garage. The original fabrication and subsequent enrichments to this property have been applied for the unmitigated comfort of its residences, and with the quality and magnitude of those services, its occupants will find any excuse to stay home.
