There are certain downfalls to living in a glass house. You’ll need to invest in a lot of curtains, you’ll go through gallons of Windex trying to rid your home of fingerprint smudges, and neighbors may or may not lecture you about the dangers of throwing stones. That said, at least this Weston beauty incorporates the contemporary feel of a glass home into a design that still allows for the privacy needed to enjoy your house without feeling like you’re on display for nosy neighbors. The geometric home, designed by Boston architect Marcus Gleysteen and described by its realtor as a “masterpiece,” is also framed by 1.43 acres of land which means you’ll have plenty of space to roam about free of prying eyes.
Custom built by a local builder back in 2019, this practically brand-new home greets you when you walk in with a dramatic two-story foyer and a mudroom. A kitchen with a large island and pantry opens up into a combined dining space/living room surrounded by glass walls offering views of the professionally landscaped yard outside. A fireplace in the living room provides a cozy space for a winter retreat while large glass doors nearby lead out to a sunny patio to enjoy in warmer weather. If you want to expand your outdoor entertainment options, the yard is big enough to add a grilling space, fire pit, or even a pool to help you beat the summer heat.
Head upstairs to find the stunning main bedroom, a corner suite with a private balcony for gazing upon the gently rolling hillside. The accompanying bathroom boasts a soaking tub and a walk-in shower, and each of the three additional second-floor bedrooms has its own en-suite bathroom, as well. Need even more space? There’s a fifth bedroom on the home’s lower level with access to a recreation room; from there, you can access a second patio through a set of glass doors. Sure, it’s one more surface to keep smudge-free—but when they offer indoor-outdoor living like this, some glass houses are well worth the extra Windex budget.
