January 3, 2019

Step inside this grand custom colonial and experience its spectacular details.

“It’s really a beautiful home,” said Betty Hensal, Realtor with William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty’s Northern Fairfield County Brokerage. “Although it’s a colonial it’s not a typical one. It’s quite special. All the rooms are very large and the expansive kitchen, breakfast area and step-down family room are open to one another providing a wonderful flow.”

Built in 1999, the 4,472-square-foot, four-bedroom, twelve-room home is located on 1.25 park-like acres at 1 Hamlin Court in Brookfield.

“The home is located on a beautiful cul-de-sac in the prestigious Douglas Estates that features nine custom built homes,” Hensal said. “It’s priced attractively considering the home’s many updates. The current owners invested $90,000 worth of updates after they purchased the home in the fall of 2012.”

An open floor plan creates a feeling of bright spaciousness.

“It’s ideal for today’s lifestyle and it’s fabulous for entertaining,” she said.

The vaulted entry, dominated by a graceful staircase, features light sage walls complemented by white custom panel molding and trim and hardwood floors.

“The home is very light and bright,” she said. “It makes you feel wonderful the minute you enter.”

The expansive kitchen has an excellent layout and offers “plenty of space for culinary adventures,” Hensal said.

Some of its details include a muted gray palette, an extra-large center island with a breakfast bar, granite countertops, a large double door pantry, white cabinetry, white paneling, hardwood floors and pendant and recessed lighting. Newer stainless steel Jenn-Air appliances include a gas cooktop, a refrigerator, a dishwasher and a microwave.

A bright, eat-in area, adorned with a blue palette, is surrounded by windows that provide views of the property. Sliding doors open to a new rear Trex deck.

“The breakfast bar plus the large eating area are the perfect place for today’s casual entertaining,” Hensal said. “The kitchen is just wonderful for family and friends.”

Open to the kitchen is an inviting family room with a wood-burning fireplace with white mantel, hardwood floors and windows that bring in warm sunshine.

A soft ivory palette offers the formal dining room a sophisticated elegance. The space features a handsome tray ceiling, hardwood floors, white custom paneling, side lighting and windows that provide pretty views and plenty of natural light. Completing the main level is a half bathroom featuring a marble floor.

A dramatic wood staircase, overlooking the main level, leads to the upper level and a huge master bedroom suite. Measuring 32-by-27 feet, the expansive bedroom features a sitting area and space for a private office and/or an exercise and workout area. The room features hardwood floors, a vaulted ceiling and two huge walk-in closets. The luxurious master bathroom is detailed with a double vanity, a hydro-tub, neutral tile and a private compartmentalized shower and toilet area.

Additionally, the upper level has three large bedrooms, all with hardwood floors, closets and windows. A well-appointed full bathroom is located in the hallways for easy access and a cheerful yellow upper level laundry room includes cabinetry, a folding table and a double door closet.

The home has a large 888-square-foot walk-out, finished lower level that offers additional space for family and friends.

“It’s fabulous and very practical. It can be your man cave or family recreation room,” Hensal said.

The room has recessed lighting, a tiled floor that resembles hardwood, an exercise area and/or office and a wet bar with a wine cooler, a refrigerator and numerous cabinets. Also, there’s a convenient full bathroom with a shower. French doors open to a stone patio. Hensal noted it’s the perfect spot for star gazing.

Additional amenities include central air conditioning, a security system, oil forced air heat, programmable thermostats, vinyl siding and a three-car heated garage with automatic openers.

The professionally landscaped property features a huge double tier Trex deck and a stone patio with exterior lighting and stone walls. Both are ideal spaces for outdoor entertaining or quiet relaxation.

Hamlin Court is a sought-after location.

“It’s close to Brookfield Center, the library, churches and schools and is just minutes away from shopping, highways, restaurants, wonderful recreational areas, including two lakes — Candlewood Lake and Lake Lillinonah — a nine-hole public golf course and Brookfield’s Greenway walking and biking trails,” Hensal said.

The property also has easy access to Route 7 and Interstate 84 and is convenient to major airports.

“The street itself is ideal for walking as it’s self-contained,” she said. “The location is perfect for everyone. Many people love the idea that some wonderful skiing areas are not too far away. It’s a great place to live. Brookfield prides itself in offering its residents a variety of activities which enhance everyone’s quality of life.”

This colonial has so many outstanding features that will make your life easy and rewarding.

“It has gracious styling, a superb setting with professional landscaping and it makes you feel good the minute you drive into the driveway,” Hensal said. “What sets this home apart is the location, its quality construction and a gorgeous kitchen, perfect for today’s more casual lifestyle. The owners took a great deal of pride in their home and it’s the perfect place for you to call home.”

The home is offered at $665,000. To view the virtual tour, visit www.WilliamPitt.com, MLS#170111920.
