“There’s nothing to do but move in to this well-maintained, updated, private and sun-drenched colonial with open floor plan on a quiet street,” said Patty McManus, Realtor with William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty’s Northern Fairfield County Brokerage. “This is a really amazing home.”

Built in 2000, the 3,668-square-foot, four-bedroom home is located on 1.85 level acres on a private driveway at 38 Old Bridge Road in Brookfield.

“This road is reminiscent of a country road of days gone by,” McManus said. “The house is set way off the road and offers additional privacy.”

A spacious entry with white trim and a pristine white tiled floor offers a welcoming invitation to the home that features an open concept design with a large formal living room/dining room combination spanning the width of the house.

“The kitchen is absolutely beautiful and flows directly into an enormous family room with a white brick fireplace,” McManus said.

The lovely eat-in kitchen is detailed with a neutral palette and complementary white trim, classic white painted cabinetry, a subway tiled backsplash, an expansive center island with seating, granite countertops, recessed and pendant lighting and oak hardwood floors.

Stainless appliances include a cooktop, a double wall oven, a dishwasher, a refrigerator and a separate pantry cabinet area with a wine refrigerator and granite countertop.

“The kitchen is warm and inviting,” she said. “There’s a separate dining area that has large windows looking out toward the backyard and pool.”

The kitchen opens to an enormous family room.

“This extra-large room still feels cozy with a fireplace as the centerpiece,” she said.

The beautiful white brick wood-burning fireplace with a mantel, slate hearth and spotlights offers warmth on chilly evenings. The room is detailed with white trim, oak hardwood floors, recessed lighting, a ceiling fan and classic white columns.

Windows bring in natural light. Elegant French doors open to a billiard room featuring recessed lighting and windows.

“This is the place to be for after dinner entertainment,” McManus said, noting the room can also be used as an additional office or den.

A main level office is ideal for quiet reading and keeping track of household paperwork. The office has white trim, hardwood floors and built-in shelving and cabinetry.

“Large windows drench the room with sunlight and offer sweeping views of the front yard,” McManus said.

A classic wood staircase leads to the upper level. Here, you’ll find a gorgeous master bedroom suite.

“At the end of a busy day, retreat to the master bedroom suite to unwind,” McManus said.

This room has white trim, oak hardwood floors, a walk-in closet, and windows that bring in warm sunshine.

A luxurious master bathroom will make you feel like you’ve stepped into a spa. The room is adorned with soothing light aqua walls, a jetted bathtub with windows, a separate, large, stall shower, white cabinetry with white tile and a double vanity with a marble top and mirrors.

The upper level also has three additional bedrooms, all generously-sized with wall-to-wall carpeting and great closet space.

The lower level is partially finished and features a recreation/playroom with white trim, recessed lighting, wall-to-wall carpeting, plenty of storage space, closet space and a designated work area with a work bench.

Additional amenities include air conditioning, a security system, hot air heat, an attic with pull down stairs, a three-car attached garage and an invisible exterior fence.

The property is impeccably-maintained, featuring rock walls and mature plantings. A highlight is a heated, in-ground, saltwater, free-form, pool with a stamped concrete border and decorative lighting. Surrounded by beautiful shrubbery and metal fencing, the pool is low-maintenance and the pool cover comes with a 20-year warranty and a two-year-old automatic pool cleaner.

“It may be difficult to think of an evening swim this time of year, but the pool is beautiful and a great way to end the day with a relaxing swim in the summer months,” McManus said.

For outdoor entertaining on beautiful days, there’s a large wood deck and a stone fire pit. A shed offers convenient storage for pool and landscape supplies.

The home’s location is ideally located down the street from the Old Bridge Sanctuary that offers hiking along the shores of Lake Lillinonah.

“Brookfield is a wonderful, quintessential New England town, and this home is convenient to all types of shopping and is a great commuter location with easy access to I-84,” she said.

If you’re seeking a wonderful lifestyle in a lovely home with a gorgeous pool, this colonial is calling you.

“This is a very special house in a great location on a nice street. The floor plan is open and unique, and the entire home has been meticulously and lovingly maintained,” McManus said. “What are you waiting for?”

The home is offered at $659,000. MLS#: 170158251.
