Hot Property Enchanting Weston retreat overlooking Aspetuck River
Nestled on 2.8 acres overlooking the Aspetuck River, complete with a waterfall and bordered by 17 acres of preserved land, this updated contemporary affords an enchanting retreat.
“With a gorgeous pool and pool house, spectacular grounds and exceptional amenities, you feel like you are on vacation all year long,” co-listing agent Angela Chapman said.
“It is a perfect place for a getaway or a full-time home,” added co-listing agent Barbara Reynolds.
“Our home is truly magical and never fails to charm all visitors,” the owners said. “The house is perfect for entertaining and the property is so special, overlooking the Aspetuck River and adjacent to protected land trust property. Driving down the long, winding entrance, we are constantly in awe of the glorious natural surroundings and the sights and sounds of the waterfall that provides serene and breathtaking year-round enjoyment.”
Located at the end of a cul-de-sac and approached by a circular driveway, this light-filled, updated, contemporary truly has the “wow” factor. This is evident from the moment one steps into the two-story foyer with sweeping floating staircase, tall spans of glass and wideboard wood flooring.
The foyer opens into a spacious living room with walls of windows that bring the beauty of the outdoors right in, sliders that open to an expansive wraparound deck and a cozy, sunken sitting area with wood-burning fireplace, which the owners lovingly refer to as the “Aspen” room.
“It’s like our very own ski lodge. We love watching the snow fall while playing board games by a roaring fire,” the sellers said.
The dining room is equally impressive with floor-to-ceiling windows, a fireplace and sliders that also access the deck. The updated eat-in chef’s kitchen leaves nothing to be desired among granite counters, high end appliances including Wolf range and Sub-Zero, skylights and a sunny breakfast area overlooking the deck and adjacent family room.
The main level gym offers an ideal place for a workout and is bright and spacious with a glass wall looking out onto the lush surroundings. A full bath, secondary laundry room and mudroom complete the main level.
On the second level, the master suite affords a tranquil escape accented with a wood-burning floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace, sliders to a private balcony and a luxurious master bath with freestanding tub, walk-in sauna shower and heated floor. Four more generously proportioned bedrooms offer ample space for family and guests. One of the bedrooms enjoys an en-suite bath and balcony. The versatile floor plan also includes a laundry room on this level and possible in-law or au pair accommodations on both the second and lower levels.
The finished basement is ideal for casual entertaining and recreation featuring a nicely appointed game room, office and full bath. Both walk out to a gorgeous bluestone patio located under the waterproof deck that overlooks the spectacular grounds.
“It is a great, protected spot to relax and even sit and watch a thunderstorm roll in,” the owner said.
A stone walkway leads to a beautiful Gunite pool, patio and pool house with TV, sound system, and bathroom.
“In the summers, we would spend all weekend in the backyard, swimming, grilling, laughing and playing,” the sellers said.
