Real estate: A sophisticated home with tasteful upgrades
A stylish and freshly updated home on W Hills Road is on a private 2.38-acre property close to New Canaan’s quaint downtown shopping district.
The 1954 home was recently updated throughout, including the addition of a new circular driveway, interior and exterior painting and new kitchen appliances.
Inside the portico-covered entry, the home features more than 3,000 square feet of generously sized living spaces that have been freshly painted in soft gray hues and trimmed with detailed crown moldings and wide door casings allow for easy entertaining.
A sophisticated formal living room features a wood-burning fireplace, two sets of built-ins for displaying photographs and collections and a bay window overlooking the front of the property.
The sun-filled family room featuring vaulted ceilings is warmed by a wood-burning stone fireplace with a reclaimed mantle and plenty of natural light from a pretty arched window.
A spacious formal dining room features classic paneling and crown molding with a large picture window and a pewter chandelier.
