NEW CANAAN — Tucked on a quiet neighborhood cul-de-sac off of New Canaan’s elite Rosebrook Road, this East-side Dutch Colonial offers a desirable address in move-in ready condition.

The storybook exterior on Bittersweet Lane is carefully trimmed with sculpted boxwoods, New England stonewalls and its own private aerated pond.

A schoolroom red front door flanked by arched sidelights stands out against the classic white clapboard siding and black shutters.

Inside, the foyer unfolds into a formal living room featuring clean chair rail and crown moldings, a wood burning fireplace and plantation shutters for added privacy.

A formal dining room is quite charming with a built-in corner hutch for displaying serve ware.
