A custom contemporary with a gorgeous saltwater pool is your gateway to a comfortable life.
“This home, in a country-club-like setting, will let you enjoy vacationing year-round in your own backyard,” said Joan Oricchio, Realtor with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices New England Properties. “This home has the beauty of mother nature surrounding you.”
Built in 1987, the 3,096-square-foot, nine-room contemporary is located on 3 park-like acres at 8 Round Hill Road, a quiet cul-de-sac in a private subdivision in Bridgewater.
The immaculately-maintained, open design home has special features. All the doors are six-panel solid doors with updated antique black hardware and all the windows and sliders are Thermopane Anderson.
A double door entrance featuring six-panel hardwood doors and full-length glass on either side and above, opens to a large open foyer. A tiled floor, an 18-foot vaulted ceiling, and an antique black, eight-bulb chandelier welcomes you to the home’s beauty and comfort. A cream palette is complemented by oak trim. The current owner notes the space receives plenty of afternoon sun and offers a welcoming feeling.
A gourmet oversized kitchen has wonderful features that will have you cooking up delicious meals every day. The large room includes an abundance of cream cabinetry with ample storage, an island with a Jenn-Air four-burner black ceramic cooktop with vent, a tiled floor, a large capacity single sink, a double pantry and recessed lighting. Appliances include a Frigidaire stainless steel refrigerator and dishwasher and a GE double wall oven. Windows bask the room in natural light and offer a full view of the pool and backyard.
Open to the kitchen is a casual dining space located near glass sliders that open to the rear deck. This space has recessed lighting, hardwood floors and wood trim.
There is an easy flow from the kitchen into a spacious family room. A wood-burning fireplace with a slate hearth and wood mantel provides the room with a warm ambiance. Anderson windows on either side of the fireplace bask the room in sunlight. The room also has oak hardwood floors and recessed lighting. Double glass sliders open to an expansive rear deck. The owner says this increases the feel and flow of the home’s openness.
A sophisticated dining room, with direct access to the kitchen and family room, is detailed with a beige palette, ceiling crown molding, wider baseboard molding, oak hardwood floors and an updated antique five-bulb black chandelier. Large, double glass sliders overlook the rear deck and bring in lots of sunlight to create a bright, sunny dining space.
A step down from the open foyer leads to a living room highlighted by a dramatic stone, gas-burning fireplace with a mantel and a slate hearth. An 18-foot vaulted ceiling with a ceiling fan, oak hardwood floors give the room sophisticated elegance. Eight Anderson windows provide pretty views of the manicured property.
Completing the main level is a multi-purpose room/study with a closet for storage, hardwood floors, two windows that overlook the yard and double glass sliders providing access to a rear deck.
“This room can be used as in-law quarters, an office or anything your imagination allows,” Oricchio said.
Adjacent to the room is a full, recently updated bathroom with a sink, a granite countertop with a mirror, a vanity and a full walk-in shower. A single window provides a view of the pool and the landscaped backyard.
A wood staircase leads to the upper level and an oversized master bedroom suite.
“It will leave you in awe with its expanse and luxurious remodeled master bathroom,” she said.
The room has a multi-speed ceiling fan, a double-sided walk-in closet, new wood floors and plenty of space for a king-sized bed and furniture. Large windows offer more views of the lovely backyard. The large master bathroom was recently updated to include a double sink, a granite countertop, an extra-large Jacuzzi tub, a walk-in shower, a heat light and a furniture-quality vanity with separate mirrors. The walls are detailed with elegant wainscoting.
Three ample-sized guest rooms, all with closets, are also located on the upper level. All have closets, new hardwood floors and windows offering a full panorama of the pool and the backyard. A newly renovated bathroom, located between two of the bedrooms, is detailed with a full shower/bathtub, a heat light, double sinks, a granite countertop, furniture- quality vanity with full mirror, a single window with a full view of the pool and landscaped backyard.

The garage entrance has a double door closet for coats and boots.. The home has a full walk-out basement.
“It awaits your creative ideas, whether a man cave, a recreation room, or a home theater. The options are endless,” Oricchio said.
Featuring a country-club setting, the professionally landscaped property is detailed with specimen plantings and an expanse of lawn surrounded by multiple pine trees, flowering shrubs, and forsythias.
“The most enchanting feature of this home is its gorgeous professionally landscaped acreage,” she said.
Surrounded by Uni-Lock construction, the gardens contain over a hundred spreading yews and other various plants.
The backyard is made for relaxation and entertaining with its 50-by-12-foot rear deck that spans the entire length of the house. For outdoor fun, there’s a custom 20-by-40-foot in-ground, saltwater, gas heated pool surrounded by concrete decking for sunbathing. A large backyard offers plenty of space for outdoor recreation, while an oversized deck offers the ideal spot for barbecuing and relaxation.
“Nature’s beauty abounds in a colorful palette and the evening sunsets are the perfect way to end your day,” she said. “Enjoy the wonders of Mother Nature as spring will soon blossom all around.”
The home is ideally located in the lovely town of Bridgewater.
“Here you have both the wonders of country living and the convenience of local shopping, dining, theatre, and more,” said Oricchio, noting this contemporary is the home for you if you’re looking for a home for all seasons. “This is a must-see home.”
The home is offered at $650,000.
