Masterfully built, custom stone and shingle 5 bedroom colonial, has features normally seen in more expensive homes. The lot was selected by the discerning owners for its privacy and outstanding south Wilton location-minutes to town, train and highways. One is immediately impressed when passing through the stone pillars, wooden gates and stone bridge. A long driveway meanders up a gentle rise, through a column of Paperbark maples and well-manicured lawns : the green canopy forms a tunnel-like opening revealing a cobble stone courtyard. The combination of granite stonework and wood shingled siding, along with Canadian cedar shingled roof give a sense of the solidity of the home. Details such as the clerestory window above the entryway, flared shingling and copper gutters add to the aesthetic appeal of the home. The property provides the type of privacy that is difficult to find in lower Fairfield County. Beyond the flat 2+ acres that go with the property, an additional area of woods with a stream borders the property, acting as a screen from neighbors. The rear portion of the property contains a 20 x 47 foot gunite salt water pool, and separate spa with waterfall, both with electrically-operated protective roll-out covers. A cedar shingled pool house contains a refrigerator for cold drinks, and covered wet bar for entertaining as well as covered patio with large screen television.
