A seamless retreat from the inside out
Published 12:00 am, Friday, July 31, 2015
A Nantucket retreat tucked in a quiet east-side neighborhood in New Canaan offers an ideal place for families with more than 7,200 square feet of easy living space.
The shingle-style expanded Cape sits on just over two acres of meticulously kept property that enjoys endless plantings with several outdoor verandas for outdoor entertaining.
With French doors in nearly every room on the first floor, the home is filled with natural light offering a seamless transition from the inside out.
Completely renovated and expanded in 2003, the home features six bedrooms, seven full bathrooms and three fully finished levels of living space.
Inside the portico-covered entry, a formal living room features a wood burning fireplace surrounded by an entire wall of built-ins perfect for displaying photographs and collections while the opposite wall offers three sets of French doors leading to a front veranda.
Just off the formal living room is a pine-paneled office with a coffered ceiling and three walls of built-in shelving and yet another set of French doors.
