“Peaceful serenity,” “comfortably gracious” and “visual perfection” are a few of the phrases being used to describe a beautiful new listing in New Canaan,Connecticut. When asked about her favorite aspect of the nearly 12,000 square-foot Colonial-style residence, William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty listing agent Karen Sneirson points to the Zen-like mood the home evokes: “The whole house is very calming,” she says. “It is very private and quiet.”
Offered at $7,995,000, this chic residence at 60 White Fall Lane draws the eye with its stone façade, cedar roofing and Chippendale balustrades on the balconies. Inside, the home boasts an impressive list of extraordinary details and finishes. Upon entering the two-story foyer, visitors cross a vintage French limestone floor to enter the living room, which features museum-style recessed lighting, perfect for artwork, and a custom fireplace with bronze inlay and Streamline gas flame. No expense was spared in the other first-floor rooms either, including the dining room with its bronze pendant lighting fixture, the family room with its floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace and walnut paneling, and the main and service kitchens with their Basaltina kitchen counters and high-end appliances. Sneirson especially admires the library, noting its soothing mahogany stained cherry-wood coloring. More luxuries await on the upper level, where the master bedroom suite is highlighted by a floor-to-ceiling fireplace with stainless inlay and Basaltina surround, French doors accessing a teak balcony, and a master bath with imported honed marble tub and Urban Archaeology sinks and medicine chests. The lower level is ideally suited for an au-pair or in-laws including a suite with fireplace, as well as two baths, one of the home’s two laundry areas and two rooms ideal for exercise or theater spaces.
The careful attention to interior detail is matched by the exceptional outdoor living areas. “I can attest there is not one weed on this property,” Sneirson says in describing the landscaping by Mariani Gardens, which provided the grounds with 145 boxwood trees, two mature linden trees, and an allee of trees on both sides of the entry, in addition to exterior lighting fixtures throughout the property. Of special note is the swimming pool area, which includes a very unique pool pavilion constructed of African shedua and cedar woods and featuring imported stonework, sliding screen doors, a floor-to-ceiling field stone wall, and wood panel coverings that can be used during the winter. The pool pavilion is augmented by spacious stone terracing across the rear façade of the home, creating a perfect setting for entertaining. Adding in glorious sunsets and seasonal reservoir views, this remarkable property will surely provide the same deeply calming experience Sneirson described to all visitors alike.
