Westborough contemporary home lists $1.625 million versatility privacy

WESTBOROUGH – This elegant 5,701-square-foot contemporary is nestled on more than an acre of lushly landscaped property that offers both privacy and a resortlike backyard.

The four-bed, five-bath home at 4 Gable Ridge Road is listed with Michael Mathieu of Sotheby’s International Realty for $1.625 million.

“For my favorite feature, I like the home’s openness and the two-story family room that you can see when you walk in the front door,” Mathieu said.

Homeowners Mark and Angela Callery said they favor its “versatility.”

“Whether for 50 or five, it is spacious and grand, yet intimate and inviting,” Angela Callery said. “So many design features bring the outside in, enhancing its grace and warmth.”

Those design features include interior and exterior transom windows, front door window lights, skylights and full walls of windows throughout. Its picture-frame and dentil crown molding and smooth tapered columns add to its grace.

A two-story, chandelier-lit foyer with a bridal staircase leads to a balcony that overlooks the great room and the landscaped yard beyond.

The front of the house holds a formal living room and a dining room that features a chandelier, serving alcove and a picture-perfect bank of windows overlooking the professionally landscaped front yard.

The dining room is connected by a French door to a butler’s pantry that opens to the kitchen.  

Lots of natural light from skylights and transom windows brighten the cook’s kitchen that holds banks of cherry cabinets and stone countertops, a center island with breakfast bar and an informal dining area.
