The luxury home market in Wellesley generally consists of fine homes with an acre of more of land. The area southwest of the town center bordering Dover and Needham has acre zoning. There are several examples of new construction, residential properties of 6900 square feet, not including the lower levels (talk to your Rutledge agent about "Wellesley's Large House Review"). Many have been built as "spec" properties, but you can still find a "tear down" and create your own masterpiece.
The Farms and Cliff Estates also have 2-3 acre properties with fine residences that have recently sold in the $6M-8M range. Original "paper roads" have given some streets double lots. Others were developed as estates in the 1930's when Route 9 gave Wellesley direct access to Boston by car.
