"Greystone" was originally a stone home on a gated property that was renovated to the studs and meticulously rebuilt and expanded five years ago. From the street, you see a traditional Connecticut stone cottage, but if you look from the side exterior, you can see the large white great room with its 11 ft. high ceilings, oversized 9ft. sliding glass doors and windows. To its side, there is a one bedroom one bathroom carriage house with a three car garage below. The home boasts sweeping forest views with mature pines, cedars, and blooming dogwood trees, and sits on 3/4 acre of flat land, and an additional 1/4 acre of hillside property. Both the exterior and interior of the property create multiple shooting opportunities.
The ground floor of the house has a traditional living room with a traditional rustic stone fireplace, TV, seating, and a wood billiard table with views of the front of the property. Entrance is through the front door, or to a stone patio on its side.
The great room has a gourmet open kitchen, a large farmhouse table the can comfortably seat 10, piano, stone fireplace, large seating area, and views of the forest. Sliding glass doors provide access to a large deck with seating, outdoor BBQ and Jacuzzi. The vibe is modern farm house. There is an additional side entrance to the outdoor driveway and yard.
The ensuite master bedroom has a king size bed, bathroom with oversized shower, jacuzzi tub, and double sinks. It has a closet area with a walk in closet, laundry, and room for an infant/ toddler to sleep behind a closed barn house door. It also has sliding door access to the deck.
In between, there is a powder room.
Upstairs, there are two bedrooms decorated in rustic style separated by a sitting room. One bedroom has a queen bed, and the other has two twins that can convert to be a king. There is a large remodeled bathroom with shower and two separate sinks. Windows are all around, and look out into the trees.
Downstairs , there is a basement theatre style room with an 85 inch television, bar, and seating for 10, an additional stone walled queen bedroom with an electric fireplace , and a new bathroom with oversized shower.
The carriage house, built five years ago, contains three parking spaces, a washer dryer, and access to a one bedroom one bathroom apartment with an open kitchen and dining area. Views are of the trees and sky. This space is rentable as an Air BNB.
The home has wifi, and HVAC controlled through Nest Systems with multiple zones. The main house has a generator. The entire property is on septic.
The neighborhood has spaced-out large homes on good sized plots of land. Ours is just shy of an acre.
