Owning a home offers those with a keen eye for style and design the perfect outlet for creative expression. From new décor and rearranged furniture to fresh coats of paint, renovations and countless other decorative projects, a residence with a homeowner who is also an expert designer is quite the combination, and a great benefit when it comes to staging a home for sale. Here are two stunning properties for sale that display highly appealing interior styles and designs as a direct result of their talented residents.
The home of a high-end designer located at 23 Great Pasture Road on nearly two acres of land in Redding, Conn., offers any future resident the opportunity to enjoy cozy, chic comfort in a pastoral country setting. The residence features the latest color palette styles and finishes, allowing individuals to acquire a top-trending environment immediately upon occupancy. Originally built in 1957, the house was transformed by the homeowner with impeccable talent and eye for detail into an up-to-date, sophisticated abode, which flawlessly blends antiques with modern pieces as evidenced from its eclectic style. Guests will be amazed by the fabulous features that encompass the home, from its custom wool carpets and name-brand fabrics to its high quality lighting and Brazilian cherry hardwood floors. A chef’s kitchen with custom cabinetry, as well as a lovely neighboring dining room and spacious, bright living room, all use their matchless decorating approaches to further the home’s pro interior design and ideal atmosphere for entertaining. The residence additionally contains four bedrooms, each with its own unique style, including a Lily Pulitzer-themed bedroom that’s vibrant, colorful and inviting.
“It’s simply incredible how much thought and talent the current homeowner has put into the design of this stunning residence,” said Ridgefield agent Barbara Reiss, who proudly represents the
property. “The atmosphere is sleek, up-to-date and alluring, and successfully fulfills the designer’s goal to create homes that cannot be replicated by simple, one-stop shopping and a large check book. It’s difficult not to immediately fall in love upon visiting the home in-person, where all individuals, whether they are interested buyers or not, can truly appreciate the skill and beauty behind its spectacular transformation.”
153 Proprietors Crossing in New Canaan, Conn., benefits from an expert designer homeowner as well, and offers a warm and chic contemporary environment for all to enjoy. Inspired by mid-century design, pro interior designer and resident Betsy Moreno Berger of DesignTwoB utilized her area of expertise to create a modern ambiance of comfort, luxury and unique appeal. While she does stage homes in preparation to sell, Berger also assists in designing residences for individuals who simply desire to move towards their own modern lifestyles at home. Her eye-catching, personal abode is no exception, featuring multiple updates and sunny open spaces full of incredibly chosen décor and expert touches throughout. The property is now for sale and represented by New Canaan agents Janis Hennessy and Fatou Niang for an asking price of $2,150,000.
Back in August, a beautiful Colonial home in New Milford, Conn., sold by Northern Fairfield County agent Angelina Valentini, was purchased by yet another expert interior designer. Since then, the residence has undergone impressive makeovers by its new owner in various rooms including the master bedroom, bathroom and dining room. See the magical transformations here.
