Hot Property Exquisite colonial in exclusive Sterling Lake community
If you are looking for an exquisite home in the exclusive gated Sterling Lake community, then 181 Turn of River, #10 in Stamford is for you.
The 29-year-old, 5,140-square-foot colonial boasts 12 rooms and is done to perfection. It’s located at the end of a cul-de-sac and has direct waterfront of the tranquil lake.
The home is striking from the minute you walk in, said listing agent Anita Finn of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage.
“The moment you step into this home you are drawn to the double story foyer with an architectural designed staircase that has platform levels alongside it to display collectors’ art,” Finn said.
The living room with its 20-foot soaring ceiling is eye catching with its double Palladian window wall that overlooks the lake, Finn said. A focal point in this room, she said, is the beautiful wood-burning fireplace with black granite surround and wood mantle. The glass door leads to the mahogany deck to further enjoy the views.
The family room on the main floor has built-ins, and a massive solarium attached.
“The pleasure of watching each season change can be reflected from within while enjoying the coziness of the gas fireplace,” Finn said.
The whole house surround sound, Finn said, is especially prevalent in the family room creating a cinematic experience.
Then, there is the state-of-the-art kitchen.
The kitchen is the heart of this home with a large island, custom cabinetry, featuring some with glass fronts, high-end stainless steel appliances, granite, under counter lighting, a wine cooler, two sinks and a desk area. Hardwood floors add to its warmth. Enjoy the views from the bay window to the mahogany deck, yard and aerated lake.
A mudroom and separate laundry room with cabinets and sink can be used as a staging area for entertaining, butler pantry or even a second kitchen. The two-car garage is directly off the kitchen.
The dining room can easily fit a large table for entertaining and holiday dinners. It includes a chair rail, raised wood molding, crown molding and bay window. The room is filled with natural light, through yet another bay window.
The flexible floor plan allows for the first floor master with a luxurious bath, a soaking tub, a separate shower, a handsome double vanity with marble tile and a counter. Large custom walk-in his-and-her closets have built-ins with additional storage for jewelry or personal items.
The second floor landing overlooks the living room and offers natural light pouring in. This floor has a second option for the master bedroom with a tumbled marble bath attached. Two additional large bedrooms on this floor have a Jack-and-Jill bath between. This level also has another family room with more built-ins and large windows providing more wonderful views of the lake.
The large lower level space can easily be used for in-law, au-pair or guest, which also includes a bedroom/office, a bath and a family room. It also includes a custom-built wine room with wine racks, cabinets, copper sink and mini refrigerator.
The home has a whole house generator, natural gas, city water and sewer.
