Hot Property Location is mere steps to Greenwich Avenue, train station
Imagine being able to stroll to Greenwich Avenue from your home or having seconds-away access to the Greenwich train station. Those are just two lifestyle perks of life at this week’s Hot Property — 101 Lewis St., Unit B, a three-bedroom townhome listed for $1.275 million by Edward Mortimer of Sotheby’s International Realty.
The homeowner — unnamed at his request — acquired the townhouse in February 2015. He recalled what it was that appealed to him about the property when he was in the market for a home of this kind.
“The location close to Greenwich Avenue, restaurants and the train station” were draws, he noted. “Furthermore, the entire ground of the complex allows for privacy and green areas. For anyone working in either southern Connecticut or in New York or Manhattan, the property is ideal.”
The eight-room floor plan spans three levels and 2,292 square feet of living space. The main level comprises an entry foyer that opens to an expansive living room, the kitchen, dining room, powder room and laundry. Both the living and dining rooms open out to a 9-by-10-foot patio.
Over the course of the past few years, the homeowner had a former laundry room transformed into a wine cellar. The living room fireplace was redesigned and rebuilt. New patio and French doors were installed, and insulation was added for better energy efficiency.
The eat-in kitchen will satisfy “a passionate cook or even just the occasional dabbling in cooking,” the seller suggested. It is outfitted with a six-burner gas stovetop, two ovens, a Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer and marble countertops.
“The property allows for some great entertaining options,” the homeowner noted. “The dinner room can seat 10 people and has. Furthermore, the layout of the first floor has also meant that arranging large cocktail parties is possible. And, lastly, the patio is fantastic in the summer — easily allowing for four to six people to dine and enjoy the Connecticut summers.”
The townhome’s three bedrooms are located on the second floor, including the 13-by-26-foot master suite. One of the two family bedrooms doubled as a home office for the current owner.
“There is a bonus room on the lower level, which can be used as an office, too, or an overflow sleeping area, music room or sitting room — with windows to the outside,” the seller explained.
In other units, owners have opted to install private elevators, and that’s a future option for the buyer of this home.
The heated garage offers yet more flexibility, the owner pointed out. There’s both space for a vehicle and additional workshopping room.
As part of a condo association and enclave of townhomes, 101 Lewis St., Unit B, offers the residents a low-maintenance lifestyle.
“The monthly association fees cover maintenance of the property, both gardens and the buildings,” the seller said, adding that the groundskeepers do an “impeccable job.”
There’s also the compelling location to consider.
“Greenwich is perfectly located no more than 45 minutes from Grand Central Station, Manhattan, in a wonderful green area of southern Connecticut,” the seller opined. “It offers fantastic access to New York City, with all its splendor.
“Greenwich itself has the wonderful Greenwich Avenue, which offers a true in-town shopping experience only found in places like Rodeo Drive in Los Angeles,” he added. “It takes two minutes to get to Greenwich Avenue from the property. Furthermore, minutes away, you will reach Long Island Sound, including the ability to sail or boat to the beaches of Island Beach or the islands and areas outside of Greenwich. A half-hour drive will take you to wonderful New England beaches and gives you the ability to enjoy the amazing New England fall colors.”
