High ceilings, windows flood home with natural light
This sophisticated, unique home is picture-perfect for comfortable yet luxurious living. It makes entertaining effortless and boasts exquisite custom finishes and meticulous attention to detail throughout. It is also conveniently located within walking distance to the train, town and schools.
A stately entry flows into a grand front-to-back foyer that showcases floating staircases, reinforced with steel and unique among homes in town, according to Patty Reis, colisting agent, who is affiliated with Halstead Property Connecticut.
“High ceilings and carefully designed window placement throughout the living space means the home is flooded with natural light,” Reis said. “Generous millwork is on display throughout the home, and detailed custom cabinetry includes contrasting walnut finish interiors and accent lighting in the kitchen and butler’s pantry. Stylish high-end stone choices are showcased across the kitchen and baths, and each of the five full baths features radiant heated flooring.”
Thanks to a welcoming open floor plan on the main level, the gracious living room — which boasts a custom-designed, remote controlled gas fireplace — allows glimpses into the formal dining room through architect-designed glass-paned panels.
The perfectly proportioned family room features an additional gas fireplace, an entire showcase wall of custom Shaker-style paneling, and is steps from French doors leading to the patio and a professionally landscaped yard beyond.
The family room opens to the gourmet kitchen with a spacious informal dining area surrounded by still more French doors and windows. The kitchen features custom cabinetry and marble countertops, an expansive center island with an under-counter wine refrigerator and microwave drawer, a professional-scale range with a custom designed hood, a Sub-Zero refrigerator, a butler’s pantry with a wet bar and a handy desk to keep the heart of the home running smoothly.
A tastefully designed office with a coffered ceiling nicely completes the first floor, and because it is adjacent to a full bath, it could also serve as a sixth bedroom.
Up the grand floating staircase is the master suite, which features a soaring cathedral ceiling, a generously sized his-and-hers walk-in closet, a sitting room and a decadent spa bathroom. Three additional bedrooms and two full baths complete the second floor.
On the third floor are two large rooms and a half-bath, a flexible space for playrooms or offices. The finished basement offers a bedroom, full bath, and large open space ready to welcome a theater, gym, wine cellar or billiard room — the customization possibilities for the home’s next owner are endless.
Every sophisticated detail has been thoughtfully considered to make this one-of-a-kind home move-in ready, including equipping it as a smart home, Reis said.
“The property is fully equipped with technology that will allow the homeowner to control systems in the home from anywhere using any device, adding lasting value to the property by connecting the homeowner to lighting control, HVAC systems, security systems, even indoor/outdoor home entertainment, all managed remotely from anywhere at any time,” she said.
