Situated on a private, wooded lot along Norwell’s picturesque Main Street, this unique home was designed and built by the architect owner. Offered for sale for the first time, the four-floor home offers a refreshing take on the split-level style, with an expansive first level graced with formal rooms with lofty ceilings; an upper level that hosts the primary bedroom plus two full baths and a guest bedroom or library; a lower level dedicated to children’s bedrooms and a playroom; a sub lower level that offers versatile space for a recreation room, a home gym, a workshop or whatever suits the new homeowners’ needs; and an attached indoor pool pavilion.
The home is conveniently located just a short distance from the picture-perfect town center, and abuts the 129-acre Norris Reservation, a Trustees of Reservations’ (now referred to as The Trustees) property that offers walking trails and beautiful vistas of the North River, which forms the Reservation’s eastern boundary.
