Lovely Expanded Cape In Pristine Woodland Setting

Mere minutes to Main Street, this beautifully expanded Cape features a bright, open floorplan with picturesque views. Natural light floods through this home at every turn. Vaulted ceilings, copper gutters, Palladian windows, gleaming hardwood floors, updated baths and a wide-open floorplan create a haven for modern living. Overlooking a seasonal brook and seemingly floating in the trees beyond, this home offers a relaxing respite from everyday life.

Curb appeal is everywhere as you drive up to the front of the home. Adorned with a classic mahogany covered front porch, the home opens to a double-high foyer with arched details and an inlaid Compass Rose. A central stair leads graciously up to the interior second floor balcony, and is flanked by the formal living and dining rooms. The living room includes inlaid hardwood floors along with a gas fireplace with a marble surround and French doors to the adjoining family room, while the dining room enjoys a spectacular divided-light, bowed picture window and French doors to the kitchen. The kitchen itself includes professional Thermodor, Miele and SubZero appliances and is an open-concept space encompassing an island with a breakfast bar, dining area and an adjoining vaulted great room with a wood-burning fireplace and built-ins. A highlight of these rooms is the Connecticut forest just outside, which creates a beautiful canvas for the multiple windows functioning as the rear wall of the home. The upper balcony also overlooks this space. Two powder rooms round out the main living area.

Moving to the tucked away, main-floor master suite, a vaulted tray ceiling joins French doors to an expansive patio and a Palladian picture window to create a serene retreat. The spa-like master bath features a deep jacuzzi tub, glass shower with multiple shower heads, a double vanity, walk-in closet and a private deck.

The upper level includes three spacious bedrooms. The first is en-suite; perfect as a guest room. The remaining two bedrooms include a Jack and Jill bath and ample closet space, with one of the rooms featuring a small study, window seats and cathedral-style glasswork in the dormers. This floor connects to a bonus media/games room with a fabulous wet bar with a wine fridge and ample cabinetry.

In the lower level, a mudroom with cubbies connects to the three-car garage, as well as offering access to a games room, exercise room and optional fifth bedroom or study with a full bath and access to a lower level patio.

The property includes a lush, gently sloping front lawn with incredible perennial gardens and specimen trees, while the rugged rear yard includes a quaint seasonal brook and beautiful trees offering a privacy screen and a kaleidoscope of color year round. The home also includes a generator, central vacuum, and numerous upgrades and updates. Very special!
