redoakscreenshot Interested in an absolutely gorgeous Creighton Hammill colonial reproduction in the most historic area in Sudbury that happens to have a great deal of privacy AND be in a wonderful neighborhood? Feel free to call us while you are reading. Multiple Listing Service provides Real Estate Agents/Brokers with exactly 1000 character spaces to use in the description section in MLS. This is typically a challenge, as we are attempting to convince you, in 1000 characters or less (including spaces) why you should spend six or seven figures and move into that specific house. In a previous post, “Translating Real Estate Ads” I provided my own interpretive glossary for all the abbreviations we use when describing a home. 1000 characters (and spaces) are not a lot – especially when we want to share with you all of the wonderful features about the house – so, I will use all of the characters I want, using our own internet real estate, to communicate to you why you should buy one of the homes we have on the market. We also like to use this opportunity to tell you about the intangibles, the features of the house that you wouldn't know by looking at the photos online or visiting. The stuff that you would only know if you lived there. It is always such a pleasure to sell a house that has been continuously maintained with such meticulous care and detail that we just know that the Buyers will be just as thrilled with the home inspection as they are with all of the reasons they fell in love with the house in the first place.  36 Red Oak Drive is that house. Mentioning that the the curb appeal is magazine beautiful is an understatement. Tall trees, flowering shrubs, lush lawn, and over 500 gorgeous perennials frame the portrait for this Creighton Hammill Colonial Reproduction. For those of you unfamiliar with Creighton Hammill, the best way in which to describe the houses he built is "quintessential New England" - wide pine floors, open kitchen / family room, total character and a lot of land. This is absolutely not your cookie cutter colonial. Perfectly sited on 5 acres (yes, 5) of land abutting Memorial Forest with another 615 acres of land with fabulous walking trails, as you approach this home, you will know that you are about to experience something special. The exquisite landscaping is just the beginning. 36 Red Oak Drive home has not only been meticulously maintained, it has been renovated as well. There are wide pine floors and period detail throughout. The warm, inviting Kitchen features beautiful wood cabinetry and stainless steel appliances offering the perfect blend of traditional and modern and naturally opens to the Family Room. The Family Room features a Rumford fireplace and has an ideal flow to the heated Sun Room with walls of glass, a cathedral ceiling, and skylights. Also on the first floor is a Private Office with built ins. The Master Bedroom features a Rumford fireplace plus a newly renovated (2014) Bathroom. There are 3 additional Bedrooms, a renovated main Bathroom, and another office area. The Walk up attic has fantastic potential. PLUS, an awesome walk out lower level (basement) with a 33' Game Room and Exercise Room. Totally Turnkey. But, buying a house isn't just about the house. It's about the neighborhood, location and all of the intangibles that make a house a home. The location is wonderfully located close to the historic Longfellow's Wayside Inn, Gristmill, Little Red Schoolhouse (of "Mary Had a Little Lamb") and the famous Martha Mary Chapel, where, last I heard, exists a wedding waiting list which includes those who have not even met their future spouse, and has been seen in multiple movies, including "Ghost of Girlfriends Past"- but only a few miles from the necessary modern conveniences, aka Target (and the nostalgic Penny Candy Store). The Elementary School for 36 Red Oak Drive is Peter Noyes Elementary (I have firsthand experience with the school and can answer all of your questions, it is a fantastic school). Middle School for all of Sudbury is Curtis Middle School and Sudbury shares a High School with the town of Lincoln. Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High School. Better known as L-S. We love hearing what the Sellers say about 36 Red Oak Drive: "When we first visited this property nearly a decade ago, we were stunned by the beauty of the landscaping and awed by the level of privacy.  Touring the inside of the home we envisioned the concept of a Provence farmhouse or a comfy Connecticut inn and have decorated accordingly.  We felt blessed to become owners of this home, as it is as much a “homestead” to us emotionally as it is legally.  We embraced a responsibility as stewards or caretakers of this home completely and have spared no expense to maintain and improve its beauty. Surprises?  The 600+acre Memorial Forest and Desert just outside the back gate was a huge, wonderful surprise.  We enjoy it with friends throughout the year – bug spray to snowshoes – and continue to discover new trails and elements of nature to this day.  The capacity to entertain a sizeable crowd with such ease was a delightful surprise – from the amount of guest parking to the way the first floor flows with liquid buffets in the kitchen, food buffets in the dining room, and seating in the living room, study, and family room.  Other surprises?  That a gigantic Christmas tree could fill the sunroom during the holidays in such a pretty way.  That the basement is so full of natural light, becoming suitable for anything from a children’s playroom to a home office to a fitness center.  That all one can see resting on any one of the beds upstairs is green tree line waving in the breeze.  That Rumford fireplaces really are distinctive not only in look but also in terms of the increased amount of warmth they throw off into the room.  That pine wood can be so very elegant in its simplicity.  That if there is such a place as heaven for dogs, this is it! If this home could talk, it would tell stories of family – birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, holidays, team dinners.  It would tell these stories with warmth and comfort, peacefulness and good spirit.  It would say that we have been great company and that it will be delighted to welcome a new family soon." Call us today, you'll be so glad you did. OPEN HOUSE, SUNDAY, JULY 13 from 12:00-2:00
