Sited on a perfectly manicured 1.5 acres, the New Canaan Colonial at 39 Parade Hill is a timeless family home just a short stroll from the village or train station.
Built in 1950, the property comprises nearly 5,000 square feet of living space, featuring a clean and classic design.
"When I come into this home, it just feels like it has been a really happy home for the family," Lois Ann Krippene, a real estate agent with Halstead Property, said.
A traditional formal living room features a wood-burning fireplace with a brick surround and an elegant mantel with dentil molding.
The fireplace is flanked on either side with built-ins, perfect for displaying photos, books or collectables. A bay window allows plenty of light into the space, while plantation shutters offer privacy.
A first-floor master wing features his-and-hers walk-in closets, with one that includes a built-in illuminated vanity and both with custom built-ins.
The elegant master bath features radiant floors, a Jacuzzi tub with a hand shower, an oversized frameless glass shower and double vanity with chrome fixtures.
An attached bedroom that the current owners use as an office easily could be a nursery, if desired.
