hot property Stately Westport colonial with classic architectural detail

January 29, 2019

Unparalleled craftsmanship, classic architectural detail and elegant millwork are hallmarks of this magnificent colonial, custom crafted in 2014 by renowned luxury home builder, Milton.

Beautifully sited on a lush acre at the end of a peaceful cul-de-sac, the home enjoys an ideal location in the highly sought-after Greens Farms area.

“The location is perfect,” listing agent Gina Hackett said. “It is just minutes to both Westport and Greens Farms train stations, two miles to Compo beach, close to schools, I-95 and central to great shopping, restaurants and all that Westport has to offer.”

A welcoming front porch accents this custom designed and thoughtfully constructed residence. Inside, rooms are nicely proportioned with elegant, yet functional spaces that are perfect for large scale entertaining or comfortable, everyday living.

The home is comprised of 6,700 square feet spanning three levels, including a lower level guest suite that is well-suited for in-law or au pair accommodations.

“This home provides all of what today’s buyers are seeking and shines with its stunning open floor plan that is ideal for entertaining,” Hackett said.

The gracious entry foyer sets a distinguishing tone among a turned staircase, handsome wainscoting and hardwood floors that span throughout. Off of the foyer, a private study is nicely appointed with built-ins and handsome wall panels.

What truly sets this home apart is the elegance of the trim and finish work, noted in the stunning family room adorned with a coffered ceiling, a fireplace and a wall of French doors that open to a gorgeous bluestone patio with mature trees providing an abundance of privacy.

The dining room is equally as appealing with a unique tray ceiling treatment and a well-equipped butler’s pantry.

The family room is open to the chef’s kitchen, which was designed with a cook’s perspective and leaves nothing to be desired among an expansive island and breakfast bar, top-of-the-line Viking appliances, marble counters, a casual dining area, double ovens, double dishwashers and a full-size wine refrigerator.

“The kitchen is one of the owner’s favorite areas of the home as it offers a superb layout and atmosphere for entertaining and encourages connectedness,” Hackett said.

A convenient secondary entrance opens to a spacious mudroom with terrific built-in cabinets, storage bins and bench seating, creating a perfect “drop-zone” while keeping coats, backpacks and sports equipment neat and tidy. There is also a back staircase to the second level.

With six spacious bedrooms, five-full-and-two-half baths, there is plenty of room for family and guests. On the upper level, the luxurious master bedroom suite affords a tranquil escape among a tray ceiling, a fireplace and a grand, spa-like master bath with a vaulted ceiling, a radiant heated floor, an oversized steam shower, a soaking tub, dual vanities and a private water closet. Four more bedrooms and three full baths complete this level.

The finished walk-out lower level features a bedroom with a full bath, a kitchenette with dining area and a terrific living area that could serve a variety of uses.

“The design is very versatile, so the space could easily accommodate au pair or guest quarters. It is also great for enjoying movies and games and could function as a recreation room, media room, gym or home theater,” Hackett explains.

Additional amenities include an audio system, a central vacuum, a security system, an underground sprinkler and a three-car attached garage.
