One of the joys of owning a home dating from the mid century lies in discovering the many unique details that are so rarely found in the newer homes of today. A recently listed Westport, Connecticut, residence that was constructed in 1940 stands as a prime example of a home that showcases exquisite details throughout its interior living spaces. Random-width hardwood floors are featured in a number of the residence’s 12 rooms, and those with a discerning eye will admire the many beautifully crafted moldings. A dramatic cathedral ceiling soars over the master bedroom suite, creating a breathtaking retreat. This wonderful vintage country estate truly offers superior craftsmanship, with the meticulous attention to detail from another period in time.
With 6,000 square feet underneath a wood shingle roof, the Colonial-style residence feels cozy and intimate for comfortable daily living while also serving as a perfect space for hosting guests. The home is equally inviting whether one is relaxing with a book in the charming sitting room or enjoying the company of some close friends at the built-in bar in the family room, and with six bedrooms, six and a half baths, and an au-pair suite with its own separate entrance, there is plenty of room for visitors along with the whole family. The home also includes a spacious living room with fireplace, beautiful dining room, and well-equipped kitchen with granite countertops and a sunlit breakfast nook. Rounding out the residence, an unfinished basement, attic, security system, laundry, utility room, central air system and attached two-car garage are also provided.
The manicured level grounds are no less lovely, featuring over two private acres introduced by a long, gated drive. Adding to the appeal is the painted foot bridge, crossing over a rambling brook that flows through this special property. Further attractions include a heated in-ground swimming pool adjoined by a lounge area, a tennis court, barn and greenhouse. The fenced property is surrounded by a peaceful wooded landscape, making the estate into a secluded and serene escape from the outside world. Located at 27 Stonybrook Road, the residence is situated within the historic Old Hill neighborhood, a coveted area near all of the amenities of downtown Westport as well as the Merritt Parkway. Now available for $2,799,000 through William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty, this estate is ready to share all of its magnificence with a new owner.
