Close to transportation and schools, yet a world unto itself, this updated classic will enfold you in its privacy. A tour of the grounds begins an endless series of surprises; shaded glades with the soft sound of waterfalls tumbling from Koi pond to Koi pond, vistas of sun dappled lawns, rare varieties of vines and trees, terraces and balconies in sun and shade – truly a private botanical garden! Inside the home, exposed beams, multiple stone-framed fireplaces, cozy, intimate nooks to snuggle in, and wide open spaces (including a flexible 1, 000 Sq. Ft. studio), staff quarters, wine cellar, heated & air-conditioned four-car garage, and the list goes on…Modern amenities include a full-house generator, dramatic outdoor lighting, central air, updated bathrooms, and a host of bedrooms, and public rooms too numerous to list. There is nothing on the market anywhere that holds more value for the money! Less than ten minutes to Talmadge Hill MTA Station (1hr, 5mins to Grand Central), walkable to New Canaan Country School and The King Low Heywood Thomas School. Easy access to Downtown for UConn campus, Sacred Heart University, and Stamford Hospital. Click on virtual tour to see more!
