A standout among the Colonials in the bucolic Worcester County town of Lancaster, this cedar-sided contemporary also stands apart for its energy-efficiency.

Deborah Kotlarz of Keller Williams-Boston Northwest has listed 115 South Meadow Road for $679,900. The home, set on 3.5 acres, has four bedrooms, three full bathrooms, and an attached two-car garage.

“The breathtakingly beautiful and private setting [entices] the senses with its tranquil pond and woodland views enhanced by the serene sounds of the babbling brook,” Kotlarz said. 

With nature in mind, the seller was environmentally conscious when she upgraded the home, installing a hybrid heating system with a heat pump and solar panels.


The home has three levels for a total of 3,143 square feet of living space.

The first floor features living, dining, and family rooms with hardwood flooring. The family room also has a woodstove (it hasn’t been used in years) and recessed lighting and flows into a kitchen with natural wood cabinetry, granite countertops, and stainless steel appliances.

The dining room sits between the family and living rooms. This level also offers a full bath and a laundry room.

The third floor features bonus space, which the seller uses as an art studio. 

“The seller is an artist, and her talented eye for beauty is evident in the home’s design,” Kotlarz said.
