Wellesley MA Homes with Land
The luxury home real estate market in Wellesley generally consists of large houses with an acre or more of land. The zoning district with acre+ land requirements is the area southwest of Wellesley Center, bordering Dover and Needham. It is in this area along the Charles River that builders have bought older houses, "tear-downs" and erected custom and spec new construction residential properties with up to 6900 square feet of living area, not including the lower level. (Ask your Rutledge agent about "Wellesley's Large House Review"). You will have to compete with builders for the few remaining parcels where you might build the House of Your Dreams.
The Cliff Estates and Wellesley Farms offer a wonderful opportunity to purchase or build a magnificent residence with an acre+/- of land. Originally built in the 1930's with 20,000 square foot zoning, this sought-after neighborhood is one of the very finest in the suburbs of Boston. "Paper Roads" originally planned but never developed allow some houses to have double lots, perfect for families looking for beautiful landscaping, pools and tennis courts. Along the beautiful tree-lined roads of Wellesley Hills are many properties landscaped for privacy with graceful facades. All this comes with a feeling of "home" neighborhoods, excellent public and private schools, and an ideal commute to Boston.
