The verdant green lawn is in. So is the landscaping. Built just this year, this contemporary colonial with high-end features is ready, down to the last detail.
“This custom-built home boasts exceptional quality construction and finish work,” said Realtor April Dunn of Prudential Verani in Concord. “From the magnificent open foyer to the custom molding gracing every doorway, to the 9-foot ceilings and glossy hardwood floors, this is your dream home. And it’s ready for you to move right in.”
Bob Pike, of Pike Construction LLC, is the builder of the Estates at Peaslee Hill, where more than 30 homes are planned. Half are sold and occupied.
“Bob, in business for more than 35 years, has built more homes in Bow than any other builder,” Dunn said. “He does beautiful work and he’s very personable, very hands on. He and and his wife, Gerrie, live here, so they’re also neighbors.”
This home, with four bedrooms, 3.5 baths and 3,800 square feet of living space, has a big yard, 1.11 acres, and it abuts conservation land, making the backyard even bigger.
“The Estates at Peaslee Hill is surrounded by 800 acres of conservation land – a pretty remarkable piece of land,” Dunn said. “Here, you have the best of both worlds: conservation space and a nice neighborhood.”
From the driveway follow the brick walk curling around the decorative stone front and up to the formal entrance set under a half roof shared with a side porch and supported by columns.
The foyer opens into the open-concept living spaces of the first floor.
In the 26-by-14-foot kitchen find red birch, custom-made cabinets, some with open rotating pantry shelving. Stainless steel appliances include a Miele dishwasher and refrigerator, the latter paneled to match the cabinets.
“This is the heart of this home, this gorgeous kitchen with top-of-the-line cabinetry, a Wolf six-burner gas stove and pantry,” Dunn said.
The large granite island, built solidly and finished like a piece of furniture, sports a broad surface for prep work and a second sink. One end hosts a table ready for your kitchen chairs – or use it for rolling out homemade pastry and pasta.
The kitchen is open to the 18-by-14-foot family room, showcasing bright white crown molding, a built-in entertainment center and a gas fireplace. Sliders lead to the 12-by-56-foot entertaining deck, the length of the home.
Each room has a signature color. The formal dining room is painted antique olive, finished with decorative columns and a half wall separation from the formal living room. Between the kitchen and the garage, the tiled mudroom glows with golden walls highlighted with a built-in bench and wainscoting topped by hooks ready for rain slickers and snow suits.
“This room is just fantastic, bright and cheerful,” Dunn said. “A glass door separates it from the kitchen, which lets in lots of light.”
A half bath and a den or office completes the floor.
Upstairs, the 19-by-14-foot master suite features a tray ceiling; his-and-hers, walk-in closets with sensor lighting; and wall-to-wall carpeting for comfort and quiet. The en suite bathroom has both a whirlpool tub and a tiled shower with dual shower heads. The granite-topped, double vanity, with mirrors over its twin sinks, is divided by an additional cabinet extending to the ceiling.
Two bedrooms share a full bath on the hall, next to the laundry room, which is so handy on this floor. Another bedroom with a sunburst window shares a Jack-and-Jill bathroom with the bonus room, which has a separate sitting room.
“If the buyer needs more space, the full, walkout basement could be finished, perhaps for extended family or as separate rooms for in-laws,” the Realtor noted.
Systems include central air conditioning and full-yard irrigation. The two-car garage is oversized and the landscape in the backyard is ideal for an in-ground pool.
“The Estates of Peaslee Hill is a nice neighborhood, flat for kids to ride bikes on the street but, more important, the people who live here are something special,” Dunn said. “When one family who just moved in had an emergency, the neighborhood supported them by preparing daily meals and watched their kids after they got off the bus until the parents got home. The people who live here have a strong sense of community and it has built strong bonds.”
