A new development in the Wellesley, Massachusetts, Fells community is providing potential homebuyers with the opportunity to take advantage of beautiful features, ideal location and historic design. Wicked Local reports that the house at 8 Parker Road has 11 rooms and 4,600 square feet of living space on a quarter acre lot of land.

"This house is brand new construction, and beautifully built," real estate agent Marcie Pucker told the news source. "The house has everything, with gas heat, central air, a gourmet kitchen, just all the bells and whistles you would expect."

The open floor plan for living spaces and cozy bedrooms make it the perfect home for a family. Wicked Local reports that the home also has a walk-up attic and finished basement for those who are looking for more livable space in their home without adding on to the square footage of the property.

Listed at $1,639,000, the home features radiant floor heating technology and high levels of insulation so that it remains at a desired temperature. The energy efficient heating option will allow a homeowner to reduce his or her carbon footprint while not forging comfort. While luxury property owners may not necessarily be concerned about the cost of heating a property, they might be focused on limiting the environmental impact of their home.

In addition to the beautiful interior characteristic, the home is also in a prime location in the community.

"This part of Wellesley offers [what] others don’t," said Pucker. "What’s so great about this neighborhood is that you have great access to the turnpike and Route 9 to Natick and Boston, and you are near Wellesley Center. One of the nicest parts is being so close to Perrin Park which is a great community space for kids to play or for walking dogs. You are also close to Morses Pond."
