CALM…TRANQUIL…PEACEFUL….A WELCOMING & MAGICAL LUXURY…A SENSE OF LIFE’S TRUE QUALITY.

Down a lovely private drive lined by beautiful stone walls and specimen trees this exceptional home comes in to view. Strategically sited on over 2 acres of Connecticut Landscape, it is hard not to feel relief…  away from today’s crazy world.  

From the moment you enter… the natural light is as evident as the free-flowing open spaces that have been thoughtfully expanded and renovated. The heart of this special home is the stunning and very spacious kitchen with a two center islands (one for prep and one for seating), top of the line appliances, adjoining butlers bar with full pantry and a beautifully designed octagonal cathedral casual dining/breakfast area with great views of the property and pool.

The kitchen also is accessed from a complete mudroom entrance with half bath and opens to an exemplary family room, with vaulted ceilings and space galore. Perfect for many family activities…be it TV or movie watching, game or play space, or to simply just relax and enjoy.

A separate office/homework room adjoins the kitchen as well as a spacious dining room, and living room... both with wonderful wood burning fireplaces and French doors which open to the magnificent property... perfect for entertaining and for family gatherings.

An additional large adjoining bonus room, is perfect for a gym, playroom creative space or a spare fifth bedroom for when guests visit!
