Built in 1898, on the most coveted street in New Canaan, this property has only traded three times in the last 100 years. The in-town estate is a 4 minute walk to the train, restaurants, village shops and coffee bars, this house has the unique combination of proximity to town, privacy, pool, land and light, complete with perfectly preserved period details. Originally built as a Victorian town home, it was expanded in the 1930's and again in the early 2,000's. The 5,300 sq ft main house boasts 6 bedrooms, 5 full and 2 half bathrooms, 3 fireplaces, a library and an open kitchen family room. The current owners re-wired, re-plastered and restored this home, while being careful to match and retain irreplaceable interior details ranging from swag-carved front doors, fir floors, perfectly kept 40's deco bath fittings and the 1950's kitchen cabinets complete with Bakelite handles, to the floor to ceiling windows that fill the home with light. A second building, one of the remaining 100 antique barns in New Canaan, sits on the property housing a three car garage, green house, potting area, half bath and pool house. This area easily transitions from pool house/playroom to its current use as a home office. The owners currently have an open permit and detailed architectural plans to expand this building, at a very low cost, adding an additional 1000 sq. feet of space for either an apartment, in-law suite, party/great room or guest house. A true, one-of-a-kind offering.
