Updated 4:39 pm, Thursday, August 18, 2016
NEW CANAAN — A lovely 1920s Colonial tucked at the end of a private drive on Turner Hill Road offers a rare opportunity to own a Connecticut country compound on the East side of New Canaan.
Built in 1926, originally as a cape, the home was renovated and expanded throughout the years with classic colonial architectural elements.
Situated on a 7.15 acres of property with timeworn New England stonewalls and majestic trees, this home has great bones with sweet details throughout.
Inside, a charming foyer opens into a formal living room featuring original built-ins, a floor to ceiling bay window and a wood burning fireplace.
The living room accesses a romantic covered stone terrace through French doors.

Added on by current owners the custom chef’s kitchen designed by Kitchens by Deane features a large cherry-topped kitchen island, honed granite counter tops and cherry bead board backsplashes.
Wrapped with custom crafted cabinetry featuring pewter hardware, the kitchen is outfitted with state-of-the-art appliances like its Sub Zero side-by-side refrigerator and freezer, a six-burner Viking gas cook top and double Wolf wall ovens.
An attached butler’s pantry, also custom-built by Kitchens by Deane, features honed marble counters, lighted glass front cabinetry and a double French door closet for storing stemware.
The pantry is equipped with a second Miele dishwasher, Sub Zero wine refrigerator and Subzero refrigerator and freezer drawers.
The kitchen opens into a cavernous family room with soaring vaulted ceilings, a floor-to-ceiling brick fireplace flanked by built-ins and French doors leading to a stone terrace.
