Located in the heart of the Oenoke Ridge estate area, a nearly 5,500-square-foot Colonial is a tastefully designed family home with stylish sophistication.

The 2.6-acre property is one of the highest points in New Canaan, and the custom-built home, constructed in 1963, was sold in 2000 to a builder who expanded and renovated the structure top to bottom adding modern amenities and an open floor plan.

The current owners purchased the property in 2005, adding their sophisticated touch throughout.

A formal living room features four windows and a wood-burning fireplace opening into a grass cloth-wrapped study with a mahogany fireplace, built-in bar and access to a private reading porch.
