A Renovated 1720 Home in Westwood, MA

While driving home over the weekend, I noticed that one of my favorite houses in the area has a for sale sign in its front yard.

I've been curious about this house for a while because, as mentioned in the listing, it had been undergoing renovations for a long time (the listing says two years, which means construction would have started around summer 2016—that feels like forever ago).

A quick look at Google Maps shows that the previous exterior was nothing special, so as the new exterior started to take form and the black and white color scheme debuted, this property grabbed my attention.

The black-framed windows are a striking detail on the historic-looking facade. I love the dark frames, as well as the black trim, and the impact of these design elements on this home's curb appeal is significant. It's bold, but had white frames and trim been used, the exterior would have blended in a little too much. Framing everything in black makes this home look special and sets it apart from its surroundings.

The grounds of this property are just as picturesque as the house. The private backyard has some great spaces for entertaining. I could easily eat dinner out here every night, and then I'd roast s'mores over that firepit! Wouldn't you feel like you're on vacation every day if you lived here?

The interior of the house has some lovely details, such as the wainscoting on the kitchen ceiling.

The family room has an unusual treatment on the walls. From the photo, it looks like wood with a light gray wash. I'd love to get a better look at it in person. I appreciate the rustic touch, and with the gray wash, it adds some coastal charm to the space.

I'm so glad to finally have had a chance to see how the inside of this house looks! After months and months of admiring the exterior as I drive by, my curiosity about the interior has been satisfied.
