Description

A one-of-a-kind in-town estate in downtown New Canaan.Built in 1898, this over 6000 SF estate has only become available 3 times in the last 100 years. This home has an impossible to duplicate rare "in town" combination of privacy, being backed by 10 acres, large main house, luxury pool & pool house, 2 green houses, 3-car garage all within a 4-minute walk to downtown & train to NYC. The current owners purchased the estate for $2.2 M in 1999 and added nearly $1 M of renovations and additions. The 5,300 SF main house has 6 bedrooms, 5 full bathrooms & 1 half-bathroom. The separate master suite consists of 2 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms and a dressing room.Additional spaces include the library/office offering beautifully detailed built-ins & fireplaces, wine room, full gym, modern eat-in kitchen with 3 dishwashers, open family room, private separate dining room & over-sized living room with stunning built-in dry bar. Floor to ceiling enormous bay windows & high ceilings throughout the house bring a modern, open and bright feeling to this vintage home. Thick European plastered-walls throughout the 3 floors of living space provide a variety of very quiet, private and separate home-office and homework areas on all 3 floors. The current owners re-wired, re-plastered and restored this home, while being careful to match and retain irreplaceable interior details, from swag carved doors and fir floors to 40s Deco bath fittings and Bakelite-handled kitchen cabinets.
