A charming, expanded Cape in New Canaan
Updated 12:27 pm, Wednesday, June 8, 2016
NEW CANAAN — Tucked at the end of one of the longest cul-de-sacs in New Canaan, this meticulously maintained and expanded 10-room charmer sits on a pristine 1.46 acres on the west side of town.
This west side Cape has been continually renovated by its current owners since the early 1980s, adding custom woodwork, high-end appliances and an entirely new front entry.
With great curb appeal, the Belgium block drive is approached through a New England stone wall with pillars.
From its extensive perennial gardens, mature trees and specimen plantings, the property is quite lovely.
A heated Shoreline pool and spa is enhanced with a trickling waterfall creating even more beauty in an already serene setting.
