About 51/53 Abbott Rd

One of Wellesley’s most iconic homes is available for the first time in over a century. Located on 1.3 acres in the heart of the Country Club area, the main house has over 7,500 SF of living space with soaring ceilings, bespoke details, and Italian millwork found in signature homes of this era. The main entry is anchored by a showstopper grand staircase, original wrought iron light fixtures, double-height ceilings and fireplace, complimented by an entertainment sized living room, billiard room, and an oval dining room. Highlights include a six bedroom main house, four fireplaces, sun room, recording studio above garage, and a 3rd level with surprising multi-room bonus spaces offering unlimited potential. A stunning 3 bedroom guest house built in 2004 completes this one of a kind compound. Outside, the park-like setting includes private yard, secret garden and slate terrace. Circular driveway with porte cochere, wrap around porches and Japanese inspired garden behind the guesthouse.
