With designer elements throughout, the renovated Colonial at 72 Wellesley Drive in New Canaan offers stylish details in a desirable location.

The foyer is lined with grass-cloth wallpaper and is flanked by a classic paneled dining room on the right and a formal living room on the left.

"This is a beautifully designed Colonial in a sought-after location with many designer elements throughout and great attention to detail. It's all about location, style and quality," said Kendall Sneddon, a real estate agent with Halstead Property.

Featuring a polished slate fireplace with a custom mantel and applied-molding ceiling adding a hint of a coffered feeling, the living room is sophisticated and chic.

French doors lead to a renovated three-season porch now serving as a sunroom that features a cathedral ceiling and 1800s hand-hewn beams, blending timeless details with new construction.

Seven-foot French doors open to a private bluestone terrace with a Jacuzzi.

A family room features a Connecticut fieldstone floor-to-ceiling fireplace with a mantel made from a reclaimed wooden beam as well as a wall of built-ins.

A gourmet eat-in kitchen features Calcutta marble countertops, a bead-board ceiling and custom Alrich cabinetry built in New Hampshire. A cherry wood island features a farmhouse sink, and the appliances include a six-burner Dacor range, GE Monogram refrigerator and a double GE Monogram wall oven.

A wet bar off the kitchen includes a GE 30-bottle wine cooler, glass cabinets for displaying stemware and a hammered nickel sink.

With a classic subway tile backsplash and Baldwin polished chrome fixtures throughout, the kitchen offers modern chic appeal.

A convenient message center off the kitchen offers a great workspace for organizing, managing daily activities or just catching up on emails.

Also off the kitchen, a mudroom featuring a slate floor offers three cubbies and a bench for storing everyday items, and a two-car garage is fully equipped with garage tech organizational storage.

Upstairs, the sophisticated master bedroom has a dressing room with custom closets faced with beveled glass mirrors.

The Carrara marble master bath features a double vanity with Waterworks fixtures, sunken tub with a polished chrome hand shower and frameless glass step-in shower.

A convenient second-floor laundry room is hidden behind double doors.

An en suite bedroom features double walk-in closets and a full bath with a marble basket weave floor and a frameless glass shower.

Two additional bedrooms have chair rail and crown molding and share a full hall bath with a Travertine vanity and floor.

The lower level of the home has a large playroom area with bead board and recessed lighting and a separate craft area with plenty of built-ins.

A nautical-inspired teak bath has a steam shower with a pebbled tile and a Travertine floor.

A fully carpeted bonus room could be used as a gym, office or possible fifth bedroom.
