If you've been searching for a waterfront home in Greenwich, but have only succeeded in finding properties at price echelons close to the stratosphere (while your budget remains somewhat more earthbound) - then you should pay attention, because your perfect house may have just arrived on the market...
What was previously a vintage 1906 home in a wonderful neighborhood - that just happened to be in full possession of desirable panoramic water views of the Mianus River - has been renovated down to the studs (and beyond) by an award winning builder and interior design firm.
The end results they've achieved are nothing short of spectacular. Think 'farmhouse charm' with plenty of 'modern flair' - AND then add in 'amazing lifestyle on the pristine river'!
All of the right boxes are being checked with this residence - and we haven't even gone into detail, yet!
You'll pull off of Valley Road into the spacious new driveway, which just happens to have parking for 6 cars (in addition to a two car garage). Perfect for when you invite the friends and family over for a little outdoor entertainment mid-summer.
The curb appeal begins to build towards excitement levels as soon as the home comes into view. White siding. Black accents. Standing seam roofs.
There's something charmingly throwback to the design of the home. There's also something tastefully current. Together, these elements meld seamlessly into an attractive and welcoming timelessness, practically begging you to step inside and see the rest of what this special home has in store!
On the inside, it's pleasant surprise after pleasant surprise. Open floor plan. Transitional interior design. Statement light fixtures. A Lutron lighting system. Clean lines. Steel and cable railings. State of the art sound system. Vaulted ceilings. Decorator designed bathrooms.
The custom chef's kitchen is a space of true beauty - while the oversized center island, built in breakfast banquet, and top shelf appliances endow this important area with a brazen functionality certain to make it the heart of this home.
Master bedroom? Perfection. Wake up to the soft hues of gorgeous sunrises and glistening water views - and then step out onto your private terrace to breath in a little of the fresh morning air. Bliss.
In all, there are 5 bedrooms and 4 full baths spread across 4,111 square feet living space. And since we're already doing something of a mathematical equation, don't forget to add in over 2,500 square feet of decks and terraces that lead to your own private dock PLUS over 60 feet of direct water frontage. Then take the square root of the pleasure of outdoor fun, swimming, fishing, and kayaking - and we'd venture the guess that it all equals up to a lifetime full of absolute happiness with your home-buying decision!
Sleek simplicity and sophistication, surrounded by the renewing qualities of nature's splendor, fully wrapped in approachability, comfort, and the convenience of a bevy of life-enriching modern amenities. Or you could just call it 'home'...but you'd better act fast!
Take advantage of this rare opportunity to own this one of a kind new home on the water in Cos Cob! Call Amy Zeppelin today to set up the showing! Be sure to mention that you saw it first on Living Greenwich :-)
