A Fashionable Step Into Summer


Step into the official start to summer on the runway! This Thursday, June 23, 2016, local agents and homebuyers are invited to one of New Canaan’s most extraordinary estates for a special fashion show luncheon. The elegant open house event, which is hosted by New Canaan agents Carol Hollyday and Rita Kirby, will take place from 12-3 PM at 712 Oenoke Ridge, a premier home of cutting-edge design—the perfect complement to an afternoon full of cutting-edge fashion.

The exciting affair will feature Caren Forbes, a local shop owner and “fashionista” known for selling unique clothing and accessories from around the world in her popular New Canaan boutique. Forbes’ lineup of talented and beautiful models will also be participating in the event, throughout the day providing a continuous fashion show for all to enjoy while exploring the stunning surroundings of this spectacular residence for sale. A delicious lunch provided by “The Pantry,” one of Fairfield’s favorite gourmet shops, and sponsored by Debbie Boyle of PNC Mortgage, will also be available for all who attend.   

Originally constructed in 1998 by premier residential design firm Gardiner Larson Homes, the dramatic stone and shingle-style Colonial residence, which is offered at $6,995,000, contains six bedrooms, seven full baths and two half baths, with a total of 13,526 square feet of space. Glamorous new interiors, updated approximately three years ago by Don White of Connecticut Homes, only add to its pristine original construction, gracing each room with a distinct sophistication and style. Features and amenities include detailed millwork, ten-foot ceilings, walls of windows and glass, a mahogany library and more. Seven fireplaces can be found throughout, one of which is located in the home’s family room, an inviting space that offers a bar and other appealing features. A fully equipped kitchen and butler’s pantry as well as luxurious baths add even more to the home’s lavish appeal. The lower level contains other amenities including a gym and sleek, state-of-the-art wine cellar, to name a few. Specimen gardens with expansive terraces that have been featured in regional garden tours as well as various publications complete the four-acre property.



“The residence undoubtedly exudes absolute perfection both inside and out,” said Hollyday, who co-lists the property with Kirby. “It was without a doubt constructed and designed by the best, and I look forward to showcasing its excellence during the upcoming fashion show event.”

“Thursday’s affair will allow people to tour the residence and experience it first-hand,” added Kirby. “An elegant home paired with an elegant afternoon of cutting-edge designs in both fashion and architecture.”
