This renovated abode is truly an entertainer’s dream come true.
Lush greenery and tall trees surround the home
Lined with towering trees, Wellesley’s Benvenue Street is one of the most scenic in the area. Situated on this quiet road is a five-bed, six and two half-bath property from the early 20th century. Over an acre encompasses a guesthouse, interior sports wing, outdoor kitchen, heated pool, basketball court, gardens and more overlooking perfectly manicured lawns—a true oasis.
A spacious wine cellar is fit to hold any oenophile’s collection.
“This exceptional property offers resort-style living in your own backyard,” says listing agent Debi Benoit. “Imagine any must-have feature, and chances are, this home has it! It’s the perfect space for anything you want to do, from everyday family living to large gatherings or small intimate parties.” Upon entering the main house, guests are greeted by a two-story entry. Venture into the open-concept kitchen and family room to find custom white cabinetry, three-inch black granite countertops, a spacious granite center island and a cobalt blue Kucht range. While casual, everyday meals can be enjoyed at the island or kitchen table, the dining room is ideal for formal affairs. A coffered ceiling and built-in china cabinets add a refined touch to the generous space.

Back through glass French doors awaits the main living area, which features a vaulted ceiling, recessed lighting and ample property views through extensive windows. To explore the primary suite, glide upstairs to the second fl oor. Here, the white-mantle fireplace adds a historical touch, while two grand walk-in closets and a spalike bathroom usher the space into the modern era. A double vanity, separate makeup station and walk-in stone shower will surely make anyone swoon. Back downstairs, the walkout lower level is all about entertainment with a full bar, wine cellar, fitness room, golf simulator and half Celtics-themed basketball court.
Summers are sure to be spent in the resortlike backyard.
During the warmer months, venture outside to your private retreat and lounge by the pool, unwind in the hot tub or dine alfresco. Once guests experience this haven, they won’t want to leave—and who said they have to? Just off the patio is a guesthouse with one bedroom, a kitchenette, a gas fireplace, a full bath, laundry and sliding glass doors. “My favorite spot is the pool house/guesthouse,” shares Benoit. “With beautiful light streaming in from high windows and a wall of glass doors overlooking the pool and landscape, it truly brings the outside in.” $6,750,000, 149 Benvenue St., Wellesley, Debi Benoit, 617.962.9292, raveis.com
