I am almost done with Forbes and Mercer’s top 10 most expensive places to live in the United States. I am on to number 8. The 8th most expensive city to live in the United States is Boston Massachusetts. With Boston being the home of the prestigious Harvard, MIT and Fenway Park it doesn’t surprise me that this city is an expensive place to dwell.
Looking at the listing on duPont REGISTRY I actually picked a luxury home right outside of Boston, not to knock Boston, but this home is so amazing I had to write about it. It is right outside of the city in Southborough. Also, Southborough Massachusetts was listed on CNN’s best places to live list. This sophisticated luxury home is located in one of Southborough’s most prestigious neighborhoods of fine homes. The home enjoys a private, pastoral setting on 2.4 acres at the end of a cul-de-sac neighboring over 100 acres of conservation land, yet only eight minutes to the Mass Pike and four minutes to Interstate 495 and Route 9. Like I said, right outside of Boston it is a great location for commuting into the city and raising a family. Even with the Interstate so near you still have a quit country setting. This spacious yet inviting 10,000 sq. ft. home, boasts a stately front entry courtyard and pastoral views through an abundance of oversized windows and beautiful outdoor living spaces. Architectural details abound and mingle with the latest amenities in this fourteen room, seven bath home, including a state-of-the-art home theatre, fitness center, billiards room with richly appointed bar and refreshment center, climate-controlled wine cellar and breathtaking indoor lap pool with Jacuzzi and fountains set under a spectacular hand painted barrel-vaulted ceiling. With a home like this I don’t think I would ever leave. What would be the point of leaving?
The luxury home boasts an elegant yet functional family centered living area which flows effortlessly into a luxurious retreat wing offering a bounty of recreation and entertainment options for the pleasure of family and friends. The town of Southborough offers a small town quality of life. You will not find a Wal-Mart supercenter but fine local shops that dot the tree lined streets. Within the Boston Metropolitan region and is conveniently located for both residence and business in the heart of New England while only 25 miles west of Boston. This town is perfect for the commuter. The home is located within a mile of two prestigious private boarding/day schools, St. Marks School and the Fay School. The location offers easy highway access of approximately 35 minutes to either Hanscom Field for private plane travel, or Boston’s Logan Airport and is only a few miles from the Southborough Commuter Rail Station. The combination of this luxury home and prime location make this home my favorite on duPont REGISTRY for the Boston area. This luxury home is listed at $4,250,000.
