Classical architecture with a contemporary twist on a grand scale meets fresh interior design and every possible amenity you can think of at 18 Longmeadow Drive in Westwood.

Sited in the desirable Stevens Farm neighborhood on 3.48 private acres, the Patrick Ahearn Architect design embodies the true meaning of estate living.

Through the gates, down a long drive, and unfolding behind a circular drive, the manor-like property is striking both in sheer heft — boasting a whopping 15,400 square feet — and its serene natural setting.

Entertainers who want to strike just the right “wow” note will love the double-height foyer, sun flooding in through sets of paned windows, and a straight line view to the French doors that open to the majestic 70-foot terrace to the home’s rear. Two exceptional rooms span out from the foyer — the airy living room and intimate-but-sizable formal dining room — both with walls of glass overlooking the groomed grounds.

Enjoying the most recent renovation, the modern kitchen dazzles with sleek, glossy white cabinetry and oversized center island. For casual dining and lazy weekend breakfasts, a sun-drenched dining nook wrapped in glass doors is a surefire favorite spot in the home.

The home’s sleeping quarters — eight bedrooms each with an en-suite bath — are each impressive in their own right, but the primary suite is the stuff of dreams. In addition to vaulted ceilings, a fireplace and two sumptuous baths, we’re swooning over the walk-in closet or err, closet room.

There’s no excuse to be bored here, with amenities ranging from a gym, sauna and steam room to a plush home theater with tiered seating and billiard room. And that’s before heading outside to the pool area with its attendant cabana.
