Air apparent

These custom-built Acorn homes feature soaring ceilings and lots of windows.

421 PRENTICE STREET / HOLLISTON

  • $874,900

  • SQUARE FOOTAGE 3,636

  • LOT SIZE 1 acre

  • BEDROOMS 4 BATHS 4 full, 1 half

  • LAST SOLD FOR First time on market

  • PROS This house, built in 2000, is a definitive Acorn Home; it has varied rooflines, high post-and-beam ceilings, and an open plan filled with windows (the dining and breakfast rooms have solariums). As with both of the properties in this column, components were custom-built off-site and trucked to the location in panels. The kitchen features granite counters, a Sub-Zero fridge, Thermador double oven, island with sink, and a wet bar. The house has three mahogany decks and four fireplaces, including one in the master. The walkout basement adds 1,869 square feet of living space and includes a full bath. CONS The number of recessed lights could be overkill.

343 NASHAWTUC ROAD / CONCORD

  • $1.795 MILLION

  • SQUARE FOOTAGE 3,677

  • LOT SIZE 1.06 acres

  • BEDROOMS 6 BATHS 3 full, 1 half

  • LAST SOLD FOR First time on market

  • PROS Walls of windows, cathedral ceilings, and an open design welcome in lots of natural light — surprising for this home, which was built on a wooded lot in 1987. The office has a separate entrance, two-sided fireplace, and waiting and conference rooms. A pocket door separates the butler’s pantry with wine chiller from the kitchen, which has a Sub-Zero fridge, a walk-in pantry, and granite counters. A two-bedroom apartment in the walkout basement adds 1,166 square feet of living space and has its own entrance. CONS A few trees in one location need time to grow to ensure complete privacy.
