$4,195,000 – JUST LISTED!
As you drive through Westport’s prestigious Old Hill, a couple of houses catch your attention and stay in your mind. You pass them, maybe daily, and wonder, who lives in such an elegant yet warm and friendly home? It is obvious from the outside that this is no ordinary cookie-cutter. Custom details abound. On a street of many luxury homes, 26 Stony Brook Road is THE house. Boasting over 10,000 feet of bespoke luxury, this home is the perfect family retreat. Extensive landscaping and stonework greet you at the welcoming entrance. Swinging open the front door, you are first reassured by the quality of materials. Your second reaction will be amazement at the space, light and high design that greets you. Moving through the ground floor, you encounter a lofted great room and oversized, gourmet kitchen with breakfast bar and nook. An octagonal sunroom is your future space for morning coffee and casual chats. An adjacent play room makes keeping an eye on little ones super easy. Thanksgiving dinner is taken care of in the formal dining room, while after-dinner drinks may be taken fireside in the custom cherry library. For less able-bodied guests or family members, there is a ground floor bedroom suite with ADA-approved en suite bathroom, plus a panelled elevator for access to the lower level. On a practical note, there are two powder rooms, a laundry room and mudroom on this floor to accommodate all that life throws at you. And an oversized 3-car garage for all the equipment that goes with your life. Upstairs, a master suite with marble bath and private balcony are a welcome retreat. Three further bedrooms are all en suite. A custom, modern office has the prime view of the pool while a family lounge offers a casual hang out space. The finished lower level offers its own club-like ambiance and amenities. A panelled family room with fireplace, private verandah and separate beverage area offers a quiet spot, while the home theatre has space for all your friends. Wine tasting happens in its own climate-controlled space, surrounded by over 2,000 bottles, while more ambitious activities can happen in the gym and ballet/yoga studio. If you can tear yourself away from all of these leisurely pursuits inside, a spa-like Gunite pool and spa await you outside. Extensive bluestone patios and a gourmet outdoor kitchen are ready to meet all your entertaining needs. With over 1.3 acres, there is still plenty of open space for exploration, ball sports and the simple pleasure of swinging from a playset. Just steps from Westport’s hiking trails and nature center at Earthplace, this home enjoys an easy trip to the train station, highways, shopping, beach, country club, highways and local schools.
