One of the downsides of living in a big old country estate is that your houseguests are forever getting lost in its rambling rooms, or youll find them sitting comfortably in the library when they were supposed to meet you in the living room . So if youre the sort who prefers a slightly "cozier" space, take a look at this neat home in Cos Cob.
Its actually a townhouse, but very private, sporting its own carefully landscaped and fenced garden with a nice tidy lawn and flower beds along the edges. The expansive stone patio leads you into the living room -- with its corner fireplace -- and dining room. The kitchen, which was recently updated with new granite counters, has loads of white cabinets as well as a breakfast nook. There are three large bedrooms upstairs, all with plenty of closet space. And you'll find even more storage space, as well as a laundry area, in the basement. The basement is unfinished, but the nice high ceilings allow potential for turning it into a kids playroom, home office or a dynamite media room.
And there are more plusses: this home is close to shops, schools and train station. But among the best perks are the low taxes and the very affordable common charges ($150), which include heat and snow and trash removal. Asking price is $745,000. You can find more information here .
