A stone-and-shingle Hampton-style townhouse in New Canaan's quaint downtown district offers low maintenance living without compromising on luxury.
As one of six fully detached units in Ardsley Square, the 3,700-square-foot townhouse at 2 Maple St. includes four levels with three bedrooms, four full baths, a home theater and exercise room.
A stairway leading from the foyer to the main living space of the home opens to a landing with herringbone floors, paneling and room for a sitting area.
The home also includes an oak-paneled elevator.
With top-of-the-line chef's kitchen by Deane that you might see in an 8,000-square-foot home, features include mahogany cabinetry, a six-burner Viking stove, double Viking wall oven and Sub-Zero refrigerator. The kitchen is large enough to accommodate an eat-in area with a full-sized dining table as well as a center island with seating for two.
A formal dining room off the kitchen has dentil crown molding, paneling and built-ins for displaying serveware.
Crown molding continues into a contemporary formal living room, which has a gas fireplace flanked by two recessed windows.
A powder room wrapped in crisp white paneling features a porthole window and modern vanity with a polished nickel chandelier and fixtures.
Upstairs, a master bedroom has a gas fireplace with marble surround and hearth and a large dressing room. A luxurious master bath includes radiant heated floors, a Whirlpool tub and frameless glass step-in shower. A mahogany double vanity adds yet another sophisticated touch to the bath's sleek design.
