Property Description

Unique estate combines luxury, tranquility and convenience. This 5,800+sf home was remodeled in 2018 to combine the best of contemporary architecture and quality craftsmanship with wood, stone and soaring 30+ foot ceilings. Set on a 6+ acre lot at the end of a private road and bordering hundreds of acres of Guilford Conservation Land Trust property, the surrounding native forest ensures complete privacy. Yale is 25 minutes and Bradley Int’l Airport is 40 minutes by car, providing cultural attractions and easy travel access. This open floor plan affords 4 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, 3 fireplaces (1 of which is double-sided), large office, gym, playroom, wine cellar, bar and pool combine to create an idyllic home. The house is near quality public and private schools, making it suitable for full time residents as well as those looking for a weekend sanctuary. The house unfolds in an origami structure across multiple levels, including skylights, interior balconies and viewing platforms that complement the adjacent observatory. Glass-enclosed breakfast nook extends from kitchen including Wolf steam/special ovens and SubZeros. Double-Sized Samsung Washer & Dryer; 4-Car Heated & Cooled Garage w/workshop; HydroAir w/7 zones; 7 thermostatically controlled exhaust fans and 7 zoned Irrigation system. Gorgeous, turn-key home that is a peaceful oasis enveloped by beautiful woods that celebrate the changing seasons. An ideal setting for entertaining and getting away from it all.
