Architectural gem with convenience and quiet

The design in the main part of the house was done by the architect Paul Lukez whose unique style offers both modernity and warmth. The house was featured in the Boston Globe Magazine. The works of master photographers hang throughout the house, including Sabastio Salgado, Cartier-Bresson and Ansel Adams.
By car you are 20 minutes from Cambridge, downtown Boston & all major universities and hospitals. Inside you will feel like you are in the country.
The master bedroom and bath are on the first floor with 2 large walk-in closets. The first floor also has a great room, den, living room, dining room, kitchen, breakfast room, laundry room and half-bath. The great room, kitchen and breakfast area open into one another. There are 2 bedrooms each with a private bath upstairs, one is set up as an office. There is a two car attached garage which will have one available space.
There is a southerly exposure so the entire home is filled with light.
The kitchen is well equipped with Thermador gas cooktop, GE Profile ovens and SubZero refrigerator. The owner is a trained cook so there are good quality small appliances like a Kitchenaide mixer and expresso machine. The pantry will be stocked and tenant will have access to herbs, spices and basic ingredients like olive oil, flour etc.
In addition to a large deck, there is a small back yard that is accessible from sliding doors in the rear dining area and the den. The yard will be maintained by gardeners including snow removal.
The house is on the Newton-Brighton line and most easily accessible from Newton. All you can see from the main living space is trees while you are only 1.2 miles from Exit 17 of the Mass Pike for easy access to the city and a couple of blocks from major bus stops.
We have 2 cats who will be with us at our second home when this home is rented.
Weekly cleaning can be arranged.
