Description

Imagine driving down a private lane through stone pillars, and mahogany gates open to reveal this magnificent eight-bedroom French Normandy estate. This one-of-a-kind New Canaan home boasts gorgeous details including a deeply pitched slate roof, brick with limestone quoins, stained oak timbers, diamond patterned lead glass windows and tall chimney stacks. Four manicured acres offer stunning sunset views and rolling lawns, featuring a saltwater pool and spa, pool house with basement, tennis/sport court, custom-built treehouse, post-and-beam ivy-covered patio and open stone patio with fire pit. Park in your own private courtyard and take in the elegance of this custom home by renowned architect and builder Dinyar Wadia of the award-winning firm Wadia Associates, one of the top builders in this area. As you enter, you will notice the lavish Ralph Lauren wall coverings, coffered ceiling and fireplace. To your left is an extension of the foyer, offering a dramatic two-story staircase as well as an extra seating option for the dining room. There is a custom library/office with oversized windows, built-ins, hidden television and fireplace. The chefs kitchen and butlers pantry work seamlessly for both entertaining and elevated casual living. The home is set up with two family rooms, including a formal offering and an additional room that can double as another office, recreation area or dining room. There is a four-car heated garage, and dog washing room.
