Sudbury charms

Offering character in a town that some famous faces have called home.

69 ROBBINS ROAD / SUDBURY

  • $449,900

  • SQUARE FOOTAGE 1,728

  • LOT SIZE 0.46 acre

  • BEDROOMS 3 BATHS 2 full

  • LAST SOLD FOR $400,000 in 2010

  • PROS This contemporary, built in 1960 in a town where Babe Ruth and Henry Ford once lived, offers a lower-level office/playroom that would be ideal for the industrious work-at-home parent. There’s a full bath and laundry facilities on that level, too. The first story has an open-concept floor plan and clean lines. Among its features: a fireplaced family room, a dining room with a vaulted ceiling, skylight, and access to a screen porch, and refinished oak hardwood floors. The master suite, which is also on this level, has French doors to a deck, one of two off the home. The house has been freshly painted inside and out and offers quick access to Route 20 but in a quiet neighborhood. CONS The property has no garage, only a two-vehicle carport.

30 ADAMS ROAD / SUDBURY

  • $1.65 MILLION

  • SQUARE FOOTAGE 6,300

  • LOT SIZE 3.07 acres

  • BEDROOMS 5 BATHS 4 full, 1 half

  • LAST SOLD FOR $45,000 in 1968

  • PROS Secrecy and spy accusations. Pasts and panoramas. Gargoyles and grandure. This European-inspired Tudor hilltop home — whose onetime owner, a former German officer, allegedly hid from the US government in underground tunnels here during World War I — has a story to tell. Its front door is from a Boston bank, and the fireplace pilasters in one of the bedrooms came from an Old North Church pulpit. The home is full of Old World charm — leaded and stained glass, curved walls, a turret, hardwood floors, and porcelain chandeliers — but the kitchen has been remodeled and modernized. The house contains a caretaker’s suite, and there’s a separate two-bedroom home onsite for the handyman. CONS The private drive, just short of a half-mile long, has drop-offs.
