modern eat-in kitchen with three dishwashers, open family room, private separate dining room and over-sized living room with stunning built-in dry bar. Floor to ceiling enormous bay windows and high ceilings throughout the house bring a modern, open and bright feeling to this vintage home. Thick European plastered-walls throughout the three floors of living space provide a variety of very quiet, private and separate home-office and homework areas on all three floors. The current owners re-wired, re-plastered and restored this home, while being careful to match and retain irreplaceable interior details, from swag carved doors and fir floors to 40's Deco bath fittings and Bakelite-handled kitchen cabinets.. A second building, one of the last remaining 100 antique barns in New Canaan, sits on the property and houses a three-car garage, green house, potting area, half-bath and pool house (currently used as a 600 sq. ft. home office). Detailed plans, along with an open building permit, afford the buyer an additional 1000 square feet above the garage for either a separate apartment, in-law suite, great room or additional private offices. Rounding out the out-buildings on this estate is a fully-working, plumbed and heated second English greenhouse for plants or a private hide-away or office. Benefited by grand-fathered zoning laws, the buildings on the property sit at the edges of the land, allowing for wide-open play spaces combined with beautifully manicured gardens and mature plantings which create a series of "outdoor rooms." This property offers the best blend of old, new, town and country available to today's discerning buyer.
