A timeless, refined air surrounds this custom Colonial in the luxurious, tree-wrapped enclave of The Preserve. Thanks to the home's brilliant Nobel and prize-winning professor-homeowners, books and art are as beautifully integral to these elegant rooms as their boundless natural light, leafy views, 4 fireplaces, and hardwoods. Holidays are easily handled in a formal dining room with a china closet and a spacious living room lined with French doors. There's a sunny mood that fills a vaulted library, luminous sunroom, fireside family room, and an eat-in kitchen with crisp white cabinets, stainless appliances, and a handy butler's pantry with a sink and 2nd dishwasher. 6 bedrooms and 3.5 baths have lovely flexibility, including a master wing with a fireplace, and a vaulted 2-bedroom suite with access to laundry and a back staircase. Over an acre of well-tended grounds are gracious with mature shade trees and a secluded stretch of gardens that frame an L-shaped bluestone patio. It's sidewalks all the way to downtown from this wonderful location!
