|NEW HOUSE, CHELMSFORD, MASSACHUSETTS|
Set in the New England town of suburban Chelmsford, Massachusetts, this spacious four-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath home was designed by MSH Architecture Associates to accommodate the relaxed style of living that the clients wished to enjoy.
With a balcony overlook from the bedroom suites to the foyer below and a large open-plan family room-kitchen ensemble, the interior space opens both vertically and horizontally. Large picture windows allow wide views of the countryside and provide an abundance of natural light. Articulated cathedral ceilings over the foyer and library/guest area include subtle indirect lighting in recessed ceiling ties.
The master-bedroom suite on the second floor includes large sleeping and sitting areas, a gracious master bath incorporating a Jacuzzi tub with full tile surround, a fully-tiled shower, a double vanity, and a private toilet area, and his and hers walk-in closets with a three-panel angled dressing mirror. A conveniently-located upstairs laundry area is located nearby. The three children’s bedrooms cluster around the turned-balustrade balcony overlooking the foyer below. Located over the entry is a library/guest room accessible by way of a delicate balustraded “bridge” with openings to below on each side.
In addition to the private integrated family room and dining area along the south side of the house, the first floor includes more public living and dining areas, allowing multiple options for entertaining. The lower level of the home opens to grade at the rear and includes an additional den and playroom space. The oversized garage provides space for three vehicles, as well as lawnmowers and gardening equipment.
