On the market: Impeccable living space
Published 10:55 am, Friday, August 1, 2014
The turnkey stone-and-shingle home at 669 Cheese Spring Road offers nearly 7,000 square feet of impeccable living space.
Sited on more than 4 sweeping acres, the expansive Colonial is at the edge of town, on the Wilton-New Canaan border.
A long and curving gravel drive fringed with sea grass and boxwoods leads to the impressive property. Japanese maples and cherry trees that promise vibrant color in season stud the front of the property. A stone retaining wall with flourishing perennials lines the grand entrance to the home.
Inside, the home offers all of the amenities expected: a commercial kitchen, three family rooms and a beautiful outdoor entertaining space. A formal living room featuring paneling, a tray ceiling and a fireplace with a granite surround is a lovely sitting room. An attached space that the current owners enjoy as a crafts room could be used as a music nook. A private study is located just off the living room and features a bay window and wood-burning fireplace with a granite surround.
With a desirable open-concept layout, the large family room featuring a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace flanked by built-ins flows seamlessly into the breakfast room and kitchen. Three sets of French doors lead to a private terrace equipped with a built-in grill and outdoor stone fireplace, perfect for entertaining.
The large gourmet kitchen has commercial-grade appliances such as a four-burner Viking range, double Viking wall ovens and Viking refrigerator. Though the home was built in 2004, the current homeowners renovated the entire kitchen in 2012, adding furniture-grade cabinetry with bronze fixtures, granite counters and a subway-tiled back splash. A large mahogany center island offers additional seating, and a built-in desk area provides a convenient computer station.
Off the kitchen is a large walk-in pantry as well as a mudroom with wainscoting, slate floors and built-in cubbies for storing everyday items. A butler's pantry has a Viking wine cooler and glass cabinetry. The formal dining room features classic paneling and a tray ceiling with a crystal and bronze chandelier hanging from a pretty ceiling medallion.
