With its two-story designer kitchen and its sun-drenched solarium, the redesigned Colonial on Carter Street in New Canaan offers 4,400 square feet of easy living space, just on the edge of the Silvermine district.

The 11-room home was renovated and expanded in 2005, including a large family room, walk-out lower level and stunning two-story kitchen.

The home sits on a two-acre property, just two miles to the train station and downtown shopping district.

Inside, the home features a traditional center hall layout with a classic paneled foyer, a formal dining room complete with chair rail and crown molding on the left and a paneled formal living room on the right.

A charming study is surprisingly bright with a coffered ceiling, wood-burning fireplace and white-washed brick accent wall.

The study nicely captures the view of the property’s extensive landscaping through a large picture window.

At the heart of the home is the two-story custom designed kitchen featured on the 2006 New Canaan Cares Kitchen Tour that is architecturally and esthetically stunning. It features granite counters, a custom center island designed with built-in shelving and heavily detailed millwork. A large arched window, glass cabinetry and a second-story interior window create an airiness to the space. State-of-the-art appliances include a six-burner DCS range, Best by Broan custom hood, dual Wolf wall oven and a Subzero refrigerator.
