Fox Hill Street in Westwood has some gorgeous homes on it, and this one is no exception. As charming as the house is, it's the land that I find myself taken with. It is summer, after all, so my mind is in outdoor entertainment mode. Every stone patio looks like the perfect place to set up a grill and sip a cold beverage, and every lawn looks like the perfect place to run around with the dog, play frisbee, and enjoy the sunshine. This property has room to do all of that and more!

This view certainly illustrates the romantic locale. The gravel path leads to an 8-stall horse barn situated behind the house.

I love the weathered shingles on the barn's exterior and the brick wall that continues along the terrace. Can you imagine hosting a Kentucky Derby party here? I'm already planning it in my head.

The moss between the flagstones makes me feel like this place should be in the English countryside!

This arched gateway appears to be formed by old trees, perfectly framing the view of the apple orchard.

These photos were obviously taken during different seasons, but look how lush the orchard is in the warmer months.

The inside of the house is expansive. The early American-style fireplace in the dining room has an extra-deep hearth.

There are many other instances of exposed brick throughout the house, along with several fireplaces. The fireplace in the room below is tiny, but the brick surround and angled door make up for in character what the fireplace lacks in size.

This house looks like a fabulous place to throw a summer soirée or two. Just add a few sets of string lights around the terrace, scatter around some potted flowers, stock the bar, and send out the invites. I doubt many people would decline the chance to relax in this idyllic setting!
