HOT PROPERTY Colonial offers an eclectic blend of sophistication, fun
With a music room, theater room and game room, the owners of this impeccably maintained colonial made certain that all the home’s rooms would be lived in and enjoyed.
“Although it’s a formal looking house and 5,180 square feet, the scale of the rooms isn’t overwhelming, and the living space is very comfortable,” says listing agent Joe Kapell.
This sophisticated, yet inviting residence is nestled on a private acre in Trumbull’s premier subdivision, Tashua Tree Farm, just minutes to the Tashua Recreation Center and golf course with tennis and swimming.
Pride of ownership is immediately evident from the lush landscaping and stone pillar entry, accented with flowering trees and bushes. The two-story foyer with marble floor sets an impressive tone. Flanking the entry on one side is the formal dining room featuring a double tray ceiling and handsome moldings. Opposite is the formal living room which is currently used as a theater room with projection and sound system with stage draping.
“Most living rooms in a home this size are rarely lived in,” says Kapell. “The owner turned this into a room for the entire family with a projector and screen that covers an entire wall. This is the home’s fun side where they enjoyed watching special events like the Super Bowl, concerts and movies.”
In addition to the theater room, another room that would traditionally be used as a study or library instead serves as a music and entertainment room, featuring a bar, piano and a distinctive coffered ceiling, another great space for socializing and enjoyment.
The heart of the home lies in the chef’s kitchen featuring maple cabinetry with many custom touches, a center island with seating for four, a built-in wine cooler, a five-burner gas cooktop, and GE Monogram stainless steel appliances including a built-in refrigerator and double ovens. Under cabinet lighting, granite countertops, tumbled marble backsplash, a walk-in pantry and a sunny bayed dining area with sliders to the private deck further enhance this amazing space. The deck allows plenty of room for entertaining among a shade canopy and stone patio overlooking the picturesque yard, gardens and stone walls.
Open to the kitchen is the spacious family room highlighted by a handsome brick fireplace with gas insert and tall spans of windows and glass patio doors with views of the rear yard and the expansive deck and patio. The adjacent music room offers a wonderful space for additional entertaining.
“Over the many holiday celebrations we hosted, the kitchen was the center of the gathering but with the open flow to the family room and music room, there was room for everyone to find their cozy place,” says the owner.
On the upper level, the spacious master suite affords a luxurious retreat among a vaulted tray ceiling, sitting room or office and a fabulous walk-in closet that is nearly 200 square feet and loaded with built-ins. Topping it off is a lavish master bath with marble floor, double vanity with granite top, jetted whirlpool soaking tub with tile inlay and a custom tile and glass shower. “It’s truly a relaxing place,” adds Kapell.
There are three more generously proportioned bedrooms, one of which is en-suite. Two of the bedrooms share a well-appointed Jack and Jill bathroom.
The finished third floor is comprised of the 960-square foot playroom or recreation room with high ceilings and full bath, which could easily function as au-pair accommodations.
Owners will enjoy the Trumbull location, which the owners found to be a wonderful town.
“Living close to the Tashua Knolls recreation area and golf course made it easy to take the kids to the pool or play tennis or golf,” the owner adds. “We were extremely pleased to with all the town had to offer and found Trumbull to be more affordable than most other Fairfield County towns.”
