Tucked in the historic Silvermine district, the Colonial at 587 Silvermine Road in New Canaan is sited on more than 2 acres of property just outside of town.
Perched away from the road behind a wrought-iron entry gate, the home features a welcoming curved drive and extensive landscaping.
Inside, the entry foyer features wainscoting and two coat closets.
The large formal living room has plantation shutters and a gas fireplace, the first of three in the home.
An elegant formal dining room is wrapped in wainscoting, and a large bay window overlooks the front of the property. The dining room includes a china closet providing plenty of storage.
A swing door opens to the bright and spacious kitchen, which has granite counters, endless storage and an eat-in area large enough to accommodate a full-size dining table. White cabinetry with chrome fixtures combined with subway tiling and bead board create a clean and classic look.
Appliances include two Viking ovens, two Asko dishwashers, a six-burner Viking electric cooktop and a Sub-Zero refrigerator. In addition, the kitchen has a SubZero wine refrigerator and a Scotsman ice maker.
An oversized center island has a second sink and plenty of prep space. Classic French doors lead to a terrace.
A warm and inviting pine-paneled family room is fully carpeted and has a coffered ceiling and wood-burning fireplace. A wall of pine-crafted built-ins provide plenty of storage for books and collections.
Upstairs, there are six bedrooms, including two at the far end of the home, prefect for guests or a teenager's suite. The bedrooms share two full hall baths with double vanities, plus a convenient second-floor laundry room.
The master bedroom is warmed by a gas fireplace and three large windows with two big closets plus an additional walk-in closet and a full bath with a double vanity.
The lower level of the home features more than 800 square feet of additional living space, including a large playroom or game room and a second family or media room.
A full bath with a step-in shower and a second laundry room are also located on the lower level.
Perhaps the most unforgettable part of the home is the custom pool with a trickling waterfall. Surrounded by perennial shade gardens, flowering trees and a large stone terrace perfect for outdoor entertaining, the pool and spa are a private oasis in suburbia.
