Looking for green luxury living? Take a look at this new house. It combines the latest in green home technology with award-winning design.
The 10,000 square-foot, six bedroom home is set on four levels, all of which are finished. When you walk into the foyer you can't help noticing the attention to detail. Just look at all that trim! There are expansive terraces off the back of the house overlooking a pool and five rambling acres that lead down to the woods. The family room has some impressive stonework around the fireplace. The removable circular medallion above the mantel hides wiring and cable should you choose to install a TV in its place.
Don't bother looking for an oil tank. There isn't one. A state-of-the-art geothermal heating system taps into the constant temperature below ground to heat and cool the house.
The builder is Country Club Homes and the principals, Carolyn Wheeler and her brother Walter Cromwell, designed every last inch, down to the quirky handles in the laundry room, to spell out 'luxury'. What you also need to know is that this house won an award this year from the Home Builders Association of Connecticut for best new construction.
Asking price for 731 Smith Ridge Road in New Canaan is $10.975 million.
