76 Merriam Street has served as the home of architect Robert Adams for the past 20 years. With this home now on the market for his $2.6 million, the intricacies and considerations of his design are visible.
Our 4-bed, 3-1/2-bath home in picturesque Lexington was designed to be a ‘private suburban oasis’ and it certainly delivers on that mission. The home, which measures 6,012 square feet including the floor below the walkout, was built in 2002.
The majority of the home’s living space is on the main level with heated floors. The bright living room has a wall of windows and French doors that open onto a large courtyard with weeping cherry trees.
A spacious kitchen with a large central island and heated limestone floors leads to a walk-in pantry with ample storage space and an additional refrigerator. It leads to a family room.
The primary suite, also on the ground floor, has plenty of daylight and motorized shades that let in the natural light of the courtyard. It also features a walk-in closet and a spa-like bathroom with unique blue Macauba quartzite. Counters, bathtubs, walls.
Upstairs there are two bedrooms and a full bathroom. There is also a huge unfinished attic that could be developed further.
The completely renovated lower level features a built-in bookshelf hallway leading to additional office space and a gym that can easily be converted into a children’s room or an additional bedroom. There is also a wine cellar, wood shed space and plenty of additional storage space.
“When you walk into the house, it feels very livable.
This perfectly landscaped property also has a heated driveway and 3 car garage.
