One of New Canaan’s top estates is on the market
NEW CANAAN — A stunning Nantucket-style stone and shingle Colonial sited on the prestigious Smith Ridge Road offers a rare opportunity to own one of New Canaan’s premiere estates.
Sited on four beautifully landscaped acres of property on the edge of town, this “smart home” is approached through a gated entry and up a Belgium-block lined drive.
From its five-inch quarter-sewn oak floors to its 10 foot ceilings, this custom new construction home offers every amenity available to a 2016 homebuyer.
With more than 11,000 square feet of living space, the home includes four indoor fireplaces, seven en suite guest bedrooms and an elevator that services all four levels.
A formal entry lined with herringbone floors and clean board and batten paneling features a sweeping platform staircase.
In traditional center hall fashion, the floor plan unfolds easily with a formal dining room, featuring a coffered ceiling and lower paneling, on the left of entry and a formal living room with a fireplace at right of entry.
