This Ruxton Home Is Not What It Appears

From the exterior, you might think this is your typical stone Cape Cod – you would be wrong. Inside you will find sweeping open areas as well as intimate spaces; a main floor master suite and an updated kitchen that opens to a cozy second family room.

The L-shaped dining room has enough space for a home office.

Pretty as a Picture

We particularly like the enormous sunroom/living room that was created by opening up the back of the house. The large picture window is literally as pretty as a picture, with a private view of lush plantings and tiny pond, while the flagstone continues the feeling of bringing the outside in. We can imagine watching the changing seasons from that room, and when the snow falls, curling up in front of the snug fireplace in the adjacent living room.

And when the fire has made you sleepy, it is mere steps to the master suite with two bedrooms (one currently used as a sitting room with sliders to private deck). The remodeled master bath featured two granite topped vanities, and glass-walled shower.

One-Level Living

With the first floor laundry, one-level living is definitely an option, but with three additional bedrooms upstairs, this home also can accommodate a family, or be the private oasis for guests.


Think you have seen it all? You haven’t. Above the garage lies a bonus room with full bath. This is privately accessed by exterior steps and roomy deck – perfect for au pair, adult child, or guests.

One more thing – this listing spans two deeded lots. Along with the sweeping, level front yard and private back gardens, there is a large level lot at the side of the house, providing plenty of play area for children and adults alike!

A word about the slate roof.

You may notice stains on the slate roof.  These can be caused by humidity and are often found on the shady parts of the house and in no way impacts the structural integrity of the roof itself. Slate can be cleaned, but should never be power washed as it can damage the slate. To read more about what causes roof stains see our blog entitled “What’s that Roof Stain?”
