A shaker-style Colonial with a modern-eclectic design is nestled on a quiet cul-de-sac just down the road from the Silvermine Arts Center.

Offering more than 7,000 square feet of living space, the home was redesigned and completely renovated by current owners in 2006 in conjunction with New Canaan architect Malcolm Robertson.

The first floor of the home features Brazilian cherry hardwood flooring, detailed millwork and custom stonework.

A portico-covered entry with shaker-style columns leads into a pretty vestibule with Ann Sax Antique Parefueille terra cotta flooring and a powder room with a honey onyx sink and flooring.

A foyer reflects the meticulous details added to nearly every space in the home with an inlaid walnut, cherry and maple floor border and painted wainscoting.

A custom-ash paneled library features a pull down desk, ash burl fireplace surround and twin ash pocket doors with frosted glass inserts.
