A Classic Retreat Styled for Today

Tucked away on nearly 7 acres punctuated by sweeping lawns, perennial gardens and a thriving apple orchard, lies this commanding Colonial estate. Recognized as one of New Canaan’s most distinguished properties, the 8,497-square-foot layout is generously proportioned to facilitate gracious entertaining as well as comfortable family living. Approached by a private drive extending more than 1,300 feet, the home welcomes residents and guests with tranquil vistas and a grand columned portico.

Inside, gleaming hardwood floors, crown moldings and seven fireplaces create an ambiance of sophisticated charm and genuine hospitality. Formal occasions are suitably hosted in the living and dining rooms, while casual gatherings focus in the spacious family room and great room with convenient wet bar. The kitchen has been completely retrofitted to include top-of-the-line appliances, extra-large center work island, marble countertops, an abundance of built-in cabinets and a view-inspired breakfast area.

Sleeping accommodations are comprised of 5 bedrooms and 5 ½ baths. All bedrooms feature walk-in closets and three are ensuite. Owners will delight in the sumptuous master suite with its cozy fireplace, lavish bath, sitting room and adjoining full-scale gym. A stunning guest cottage features a separate entry and kitchen, while the handsome library with wall-to-wall built-in bookcases, fireplace and private bathroom presents an ideal retreat for the executive at home.

Augmenting the main residence are a heated in-ground swimming pool, tennis court, full-service pool house, changing cabana with bath and 4-car garage. A portrait of timeless beauty, this stately residence has been painstakingly renovated by the current owners to achieve a tasteful blend of classic style and modern conveniences. Offered at $5,790,000.
