Situated on an enclave of five pristine Colonials, the property at 277 Old Stamford Road in New Canaan offers modern amenities to a timeless classic.
Pulling up the private circular drive, the home is situated on an acre and a half of landscaped meadowlands.
This home is a calling for those seeking the tranquil life of suburban family living complete with four finished levels and ample living spaces.
On the desirable south end of town, the house's proximity to two train stations, the town's schools and the quaint downtown district is a major draw for buyers.
The white clapboard home has tall black shutters and a welcoming entry.
Built in 2000, the property comprises nearly 7,000 square feet of living space, featuring a speaker system throughout the house, 9- to 10-foot ceilings, incredible millwork and four working gas fireplaces.
Inside, the foyer opens to a center hall with a high ceiling, elaborate light fixture and sweeping staircase.
Like a classic center-hall Colonial, there is a traditional formal sitting room to the left featuring heavily detailed crown and chair moldings and a gas fireplace with a black marble hearth.

Unlike the floor plan of a traditional center hall, there is a cherry library on the right with wall-to-wall built-ins and coffered ceiling.
"The millwork is what makes this house. It's not just regular chair molding but it has several layers to it," Villiers said.
Connected to the sitting room is a formal dining room with high ceilings and ample window light adding to the spacious feel of the first floor of the home.
Seamlessly flowing off the dining room is an expansive kitchen with a large polished granite center island, stainless steel appliances, custom cabinetry and a breakfast nook that looks out onto the terrace and perfectly manicured acre of property.
A floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace, one of four in the home, warms the spacious family room and transom windows allow light to pour into the space. The family room has coffered ceilings creating a more formal feel to the coziness of the room.
On the second floor, the landing opens up into a sitting, homework or playroom area.
Nine-foot ceilings and vintage-inspired glass doorknobs are common to all of the bedrooms.
There are four bedrooms on this level with built-in window seats and hardwood floors and there are three bathrooms on this floor.
The master bedroom has a fireplace, custom walk-in closet, sitting room and oversized bath with both a whirlpool and steam shower.
Both the lower level and fourth floor feature carpet throughout, ideal for families with small children.
In addition, the home includes a three-car attached garage with a walkout basement providing valued storage space.Read Full Article
