Waterfront Stamford home has greenhouse, secret loft
This wondrous waterfront home with a pool, spa, dock and secret loft/room will make you feel like you’ve hit the jackpot on the Stamford/Darien line.
“The home is set out on a point that creates privacy from many different angles and gives spectacular water views,” said listing agent Casey Lange of Halstead Property Connecticut. “It has a wonderful beachy Nantucket feel.”
The 12-room home was built in 1919, and it “was renovated to work with today’s lifestyle,” she said.
The house sits on .53 acres and has two floors and a secret loft. It also comes complete with a greenhouse for those with a green thumb. The first floor, Lange said, features the kitchen, living room and family room.
“The kitchen has stainless steel appliances and is white and bright with two islands, an eating area with vaulted ceilings and views of the sunrise,” Lange said. The home’s two fireplaces are located within the living room and the family room. The living room also has hardwood floors and a deck “so you can go out and enjoy the breezes,” Lange said.
The family room comes complete with vaulted ceilings, builtins and views of the water. A small sunroom, she said, is attached to the family room which can be easily used as an office or additional sitting space.
One item that makes the home truly unique is the greenhouse off of the mud room. “It’s a good size, and it’s quite unusual,” Lange said.
A walk up the main staircase will lead you to the master suite on the second floor with vaulted ceilings and a balcony perfect for morning coffee. There is also a full bath and dressing room. Also on the second floor, you will find a second bedroom and full bath.
One of the really exciting features said, is the secret loft.
“Off the master bedroom, there is a staircase which leads to a secret room (or loft), which you enter through a bookcase. It’s like a secret door,” she said.
Up the back staircase are two large bedrooms that share a bath with plenty of storage space.
The waterfront home, Lange said has plenty of natural light, lots of French doors and hardwood floors throughout. The home’s different decks and terraces allow for easy indoor/outdoor entertaining. There is also a koi pond on the property and unique landscaping.
“The property is very lush with perennial gardens. It’s in constant bloom,” Lange said.
The house is steps from the beach and “very close to the train and obviously convenient to shopping and going to the library,” Lange said.
