Architect: Grassi Design Group
Project size: 8,200 SF
Construction Duration: 12 months
Connaughton Construction recently completed construction of a 7700 SF expanded colonial (tudor) home in the Cliff Road section of Wellesley. The original structure on the site was raised to make room for the new home.
"We were thrilled by the work of the Connaughton team. Your focus on quality and attention to detail was fantastic. Our project came in on budget and on schedule. You were always ready to do the work to get things done just the way we wanted, and built our home as though you were going to move in."
The house consists of three floors of living space. The lower level is a “walk-out” to the backyard with an au-pair suite, playroom and exercise room. The first floor features a limestone tile foyer with custom curved wood stairs and wrought iron railing. The main second floor has three large bedrooms, a laundry, dressing rooms and bathrooms with marble, granite and imported tile. There is a separate wing with a custom cherry library. Custom cabinets and six fireplaces (three are gas-fired) enhance the interior.
State of the art mechanical systems were installed including a gas-fired hydro-air HVAC system, high-speed integrated cabling with custom audio, stereo and telephone systems.
The exterior features a restoration brick facade with custom made pre-cast arches, wall caps and gable ends, as well as a wood shingle roof, a brick patio, bluestone terrace and leaded glass window. Additionally, there is an in-law suite above the three-car garage for houseguests.
