1 Rocky Ridge Road, Dedham, MA
This extraordinary estate offers 15 acres of private broad lawns, mature specimen trees, and natural woods with magnificent views of western sunsets. The main house, sited on the property’s high point, was architect-designed and custom-built in 2000. The beautifully proportioned rooms are filled with an abundance of natural light with wide halls and arched French doors that lead to a stone and brick terrace. The communication of interior and exterior space is reminiscent of European country houses.
The elegant living and dining rooms open to a graceful hall with a stunning staircase and Palladian style window. The family room offers a more relaxed setting with a wood-burning fireplace, built-in bookcases and bar. A master suite with a newly-designed dressing room and bath overlooks the stone castle and reflecting pool. There are three additional bedrooms and two full baths on the second floor with a storage area that offers expansion possibilities.
The stone castle with a magnificent wood-paneled library offers a kitchen, full bath and reading room with gallery that are accessed by secret passageways concealed by bookcases. This magical folly makes a perfect sanctuary as office, library, or place to entertain. A three-room cottage and two additional garages are located at the entrance to the property. The Dedham Country and Polo Club, Legacy Place, commuter rail and major routes to Boston and Providence are easily accessible.
