Majestic, Magazine Featured Home in Highly Desired Neighborhood. On a quiet country lane in a sought out pastoral neighborhood, home to several storied estates, is a brick manor house of exceptional beauty and design. Featured as a cover story for Cottages & Gardens magazine "Where the Lovelight Gleams", this special house was renovated and decorated inside and out in the style of a 1920s David Adler architectural masterpiece. The redesigned exterior features an impressive allee of London Plane trees, spectacular large scale circular gravel drive, vintage style roofline, including corbels and slate roof, copper gutters and copper roofed dormers. Inside, there are stunning custom French doors, transoms, arched doorways, handcrafted fireplace mantles and unique moldings, many of which were obtained from the original architectural catalogs favored by David Adler himself! All of this on a completely level, totally private, over 4 acre property, surrounded by a perimeter fence and custom automated security gate. The backyard features an inground pool, mature landscaping and a large athletic field. There is an oversized, two story barnlike shed that was architecturally designed for the property.
In addition to 7 well sized bedrooms and 7.5 bathrooms, including a large glamorous primary suite with dual closets and dressing rooms, there are two private offices, an additional kids' office area, a gym, a lower level mirrored yoga/dance studio, a play area, and an au-par suite. There are two laundry rooms, one on the main and another on the second level. The fabulous layout of this house features great flow, main spaces with gracious scale and high ceilings, all beautifully appointed and divinely decorated. A warm, elegant and sophisticated home, perfectly located 5 minutes to the downtown areas of New Canaan, Pound Ridge and North Stamford, close to several train stations, highway access, top rated restaurants and shopping.
