The home offers four bedrooms, four full bathrooms, and two half bathrooms. The 7,900-square-foot home at 1311 Commonwealth Ave in Newton, which was custom-built in 2006, was “designed by a young dreamer’s vision,” according to the listing. For $5,200,000, the home offers four bedrooms, four full bathrooms, and two half baths.
Ice cream lovers can pull up a seat at the marble-topped bar in the basement of the expansive home, grab a bowl from the built-in shelves above, and dig in. There’s a microwave cubby to the left, perfect for heating up chocolate or caramel sauce to make your sundaes all the sweeter, and there’s a stainless steel sink for easy clean up. The only thing missing is a freezer. The ice cream bar is just one part of the entertainment hub the sellers created on this level. There’s also a media room, complete with eight cushioned reclining chairs, a gas fireplace with a stone surround, a projector and projector screen, and a surround-sound speaker system; as well as a game room the sellers outfitted with a pool table and several old-fashioned arcade games. It’s not all fun and games: There’s also room for relaxation. The massive bathroom on this floor is home to a sauna and steam shower, perfect for loosening sore muscles after a hard workout in the home’s exercise room, which features mirrored walls and synthetic flooring. A temperature-controlled wine room with floor-to-ceiling shelves is likely to satisfy the wishes of any aficionado, and it pairs perfectly with the wet bar on the floor above. The bar, located just past a marble foyer with a high ceiling, has an ice maker, a wine chiller, and a stainless steel sink and microwave.
Wood pilasters and a mirrored backsplash may be almost enough to convince residents they’re actually out on the town, instead of steps away from the kitchen. The bar is part of an open floor plan with the great room. The elegant space lives up to its name, with eight sliding glass doors topped with arched windows, a gas fireplace with a white stone hearth, and an ornate chandelier hanging from the tray ceiling. Sleek walnut floors run throughout most of the rooms on this level.
