The gorgeous use of natural materials, unsurpassed millwork, premium finishes & superior amenities make this custom Colonial one of Fairfield County’s most impressive homes.
Situated on 2.08 beautiful acres just minutes to town, the home at 95 Peaceable Street reflects the best in custom design and construction. The result of a collaboration between world-class architects Studio Z Home Design of Bethesda, Maryland and exquisite interior designer Pat Healing of HB Home in Greenwich and Manhattan, the residence is a meticulous marrying of sophisticated comfort, classic elegance and impeccable taste.
Expertly built by Sturges Brothers Construction, the residence reflects a sophisticated, yet warm & comfortable ambiance. Absolutely no expense was spared during the construction as evidenced by the use of natural materials, and the premium finishes and appointments found throughout the home. Beautiful millwork and cabinetry, exquisite lighting, 10-foot ceilings, gorgeous wood floors, Calcutta & Carrera marble countertops and vanities, Chesney limestone fireplace surrounds, and the extensive use of custom stone accents reflect a beauty and character seldom found in newer homes.
The Way We Were Meant To Live
Grand in proportion, but intimate in design, the two-story foyer sets the tone for an unsurpassed living experience. Designed to draw your eye to the back of the home and out into the garden, the view from the entry is surpassed only by the grand staircase sweeping its way to the balcony above. With space to elegantly seat 12, the formal dining room also competes for your attention, drawing you in with custom fabric wallpaper and over-sized divided light windows. The formal living room is beyond compare with a barrel ceiling, gas fired masonry fireplace with a Chesney limestone surround and unfettered views of the backyard. An expansive mudroom enters off the heated three-car garage and includes a desk, cabinet lockers for four, a walk-in closet and a full bath with a hand sprayer perfect for quick clean-ups after a day by the pool. The library with extensive built-in shelving, fireplace with limestone surround, an office alcove with hidden storage and a formal powder room provide a quiet space to retire and contemplate after a long day.
Beauty Meets Function
As you move through the home and into the entertaining prep kitchen, the functionality of design becomes immediately apparent. A full-size side-by-side wine refrigerator, Miele espresso maker with a complimentary convection microwave, dishwasher and full-size sink can be found nearest the dining room making entertaining a breeze. The traditional family kitchen includes top-of-the-line appliances such as an induction cooktop, double ovens, second dishwasher, and a second refrigerator and freezer. The farmhouse sink, Calcutta marble counters, custom solid wood cabinetry, oversized center island with a breakfast bar, and a walk-in pantry round out this well thought out space. The nearby breakfast room walks out to a private side patio and reflects a modern touch with whimsical paint and chandelier choices while the adjoining vaulted family room draws your eye up to what seems to be cathedral-height ceilings. An extensive use of stone columns mimics the floor to ceiling stone fireplace surround and complements the custom cabinetry, French doors and clean lines of this most comfortable space.
The perfectly proportioned public spaces are complemented by the comfortable, private rooms of the upper level. The spacious en suite rooms feature custom outfitted walk-in closets and full baths with radiant heated floors, while the unsurpassed master suite is remarkable both in its beauty and scale. The suite includes a spacious bedroom with built-in storage and media cabinets, a separate dressing room with a center island, shoe wall, drawers, and multiple closets. The luxurious bath includes a Kohler DTV automated showering system with a rain head and six body sprayers, two TVs – including a behind-mirror TV – whirlpool tub, gas fireplace, and his & hers vanities. A beverage center with a dishwasher, sink and refrigerator rounds out the room. A reading nook can be found on the upper level landing just off the secondary staircase, while an unfinished walk-up attic can also be accessed from here. The upper level laundry includes two sets of high efficiency washers and dryers, and extensive home automation such as a security system with live cameras, surround sound music, Apple TV & lighting are all controlled from a smartphone or tablet.
Entertain Like Never Before
Accessed from either the front foyer or mudroom staircase, the lower level features 9-foot ceilings and includes a state-of-the-art media room with couches to comfortably seat family and friends, a guest suite with a beverage center and full bath, a walk-out second family room, games room, and an exercise room with direct access to a private full bath with steam shower. Large viewing windows overlook the sunken indoor basketball court 17-feet below, which is accessed from the mudroom staircase.
A Private Oasis In The Heart Of Town
Surrounded by stone walls with a custom, automated entry gate, the exterior of the home features copper gutters, extensive hardscaping and landscape design by notable landscape designer Craig Studer, and a private backyard oasis. The 40 x 22 heated saltwater, gunite pool and spa with automatic cover can be enjoyed from multiple patios and seating areas including the poolside stone fireplace. Alternatively, the covered porch with a second fireplace is accessible from multiple rooms in the house and enjoys uninterrupted views of the backyard. Located only one hour from Manhattan, and with easy access to both Westchester and Lower Fairfield Counties, this residence is ideally suited to a discerning buyer with and elegant and sophisticated take on life.
