With all the amenities this custom-built classic Connecticut colonial has—not to mention its two private acres and access to Brothers Brook—there’s almost no need to leave home. “This house has it all,” says Jen Bello, real estate agent with The Angela Swift Team in Cos Cob, CT. “Although it is over 7,000 square feet, each space feels warm and inviting, not massive…every room was designed with special attention to its use.”
On the first floor, the gourmet chef’s kitchen has a commercial-sized Viking refrigerator, Viking six-burner stove with gas grill, separate pot filling sink, multiple Bosch dishwashers, a built-in Miele coffee maker, warming drawers in the kitchen and a large walk-in pantry. The kitchen opens to an outdoor patio with outdoor fireplace and built-in grill. “The porch is my favorite spot,” says Bello. “It sits up high on the property overlooking the brook and nature preserve. It’s a perfect place to relax and unwind or to have a lovely dinner party.” The site is also approved for a pool.
A double height family room, formal dining room and living room/billiard room with separate bar make for ample entertaining space. The home office, also on the first floor, is away from the main living spaces just down the hall from the billiard room, allowing for quiet and private room to work from home. Upstairs, a luxurious master bedroom and four additional en suite bedrooms provide plenty of space for the family, plus laundry room with steam cleaner and built-in ironing board. The lower level includes a home theater, gym, temperature-controlled wine cellar and laundry room with a dog wash!
“These days, spending so much time at home, these extra amenities have become a must have,” says Bello. “With all of the restrictions and uncertainties, the buyers want to make sure they have what they need right at home.” And we really mean everything: Even the gym has a fireplace, says Bello.
