On the market: Classic design

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.

The large kitchen offers an open floor plan with plenty of cabinet and counter space. Features include a double Viking wall oven, large center island, granite counters and a four-burner Wolf cooktop.

Opening into a breakfast area and cozy family room with a wood-burning fireplace and cathedral ceiling, the family-oriented space has an easy flow.

A half bath and a bright first-floor laundry room with bead board, plenty of cabinet space and a wash tub are located just off the kitchen.

The formal dining room features traditional design, with crisp paneling, a crystal chandelier and a large china closet with plenty of storage.

A pergola-covered flagstone terrace offers a great space for outdoor entertaining and includes the quintessential porch swing and built-in fire pit.

The perfectly flat grassy lawn runs alongside a babbling brook and offers seating areas throughout the property's well-cared-for gardens. Read Full Article 

On the second floor, a large landing provides enough space for a reading nook, sitting area or homework station.

The second floor includes three en suite bedrooms, as well as a family or recreational room at the rear stairway landing.
