Impeccably manicured rolling lawns surround this new construction home on a private lot just a few minutes from downtown Greenwich, CT. “This house is well-suited as a full-time family home or weekend escape for city dwellers,” says Stefanie Lacoff, real estate executive and listing agent at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices New England Properties in Greenwich, CT.
In backcountry Greenwich and centrally located from the east and west sides of town, it’s a quick 10-minute drive to Greenwich library and the train, with peaceful grounds surrounded by lush greenery that feel worlds away.
The heated patio floor is just the beginning of the smart home tech—lights, heat and air conditioning can all be controlled from your smartphone. That same attention to detail can also be seen throughout, with unique and modern chandeliers, high ceilings in the basement and glass panels surrounding the second floor balcony offering unobstructed views, which all provide a level of custom and crafted details expected of this caliber home.
Paul Gudas of Skyview Builders says potential buyers can also add custom features to make the home their own. “A retractable glass wall can be added to the main level to allow for privacy between the kitchen area and living room,” says Lacoff. “The attic and basement have not been finished yet and can be customized by the buyer. The guest apartment over the detached garage is waiting for a new owner to customize updates.”
Homeowners right now are looking for elevators or space to install one, large walk-in pantries, full-house generators and a gated and fenced property—and this house checks all the boxes. Plus, a DaVinci slate roof requires little maintenance and offers a lifetime warranty, adds Lacoff.
The open floor plan makes the home ideal for entertaining and plenty of rooms allow for overnight guests. Outside, a heated in-ground pool makes summer parties easy, and the covered porch can be used in warm or cool months. “My favorite feature is the covered porch, right off the living room, which has a beautiful stone patio with a heated floor and a wood-burning fireplace,” says Lacoff. “This outdoor space can be enjoyed all year round.”
