This week we have 2 Featured Open House Properties - both South of the Post Road in Riverside, but offering different price points for this coveted neighborhood.
These 2 properties share the same public schools, access to train, roads, town, clubs, and more -- but give the buyer distinctly different levels of household amenities, as reflected in the contrast between their two listing prices.
Let's start with 24 Juniper Lane in Riverside - our Featured Open House at the lower end of the price spectrum for this neighborhood.
24 Juniper Lane, Riverside, CT 06878
4 beds, 3.5 baths, 2,843 sqft
What we have here is a 'Waterfront Oasis' of a home with 136 feet of direct riverfront on the property. Built in 1968, this 4 bedroom and 3.5 bath home is set on .36 acres and boasts notable waterfront vistas from most of the windows and the outdoor recreation and relaxation spaces.
Food aficionados will appreciate the spacious (and recently renovated) cherry wood kitchen with granite counter tops. Cook within eyeshot of glistening water views!
Plus, the convenience of the location is a major upside to this property! It's an easy walk to Ada's, Riverside School, and the train station.
Put it all together, and it's magic on the water with a very attractive price tag!
Our second Featured Open House of the week is located at 72 Meadow Road in Riverside, at a significantly higher price point.
72 Meadow Road, Riverside, CT 06878
6 beds, 6.5 baths, 7,405 sqft
This new construction located in the desirable Willowmere Association neighborhood is a picture perfect stone and clapboard colonial designed to blend in seamlessly with the mature streetscape it sits on. Event though it's completely brand new, the property feels as if it's been there forever.
A dignified and classical exterior provides the curb appeal, with an interior that exceeds the expectations in its lighting, inviting atmosphere, and exquisite craftsmanship. Literally no detail was spared in the thoughtful construction of this home.
The six bedrooms and six full baths offer ample room to spread out - and the home is full of versatile spaces designed for functional luxury day-to-day life: a living room with a wet bar, oak paneled study, a breathtaking open gourmet kitchen / family room with with a stone fireplace.
And since New England has been known to get cold during the winter months, the new owner of this home will fully appreciate the heated mudroom and bathroom floors. After all - why have cold feet when the option exists not to?
The custom wine cellar is a definite plus - and will absolutely pair nicely alongside the covered bluestone terrace with outdoor fireplace.
There's more, of course - but don't you think you're probably better off seeing it yourself at this weekend's open house? Stop in and tell them Living Greenwich sent you!
