Nature lovers are going to feel right at home in this house because the Saugatuck River meanders gently along the property's edge, Crystal Lake is just round the corner and the Nantucket-style architecture feels like youre down by the beach.
The house is a big one -- eight thousand square feet spread over four floors. The front door opens into an unusual hexagonal double height foyer which sets a nice luxurious tone since it actually stretches all the way to the back of the house. This is the type of foyer I would decorate with a fantastic round, antique table (larger than the one in the photo) topped by a dramatic flower arrangement. Elegant living and dining rooms sit off the hall and then, of course, youve got your oversized, state-of-the-art kitchen. Feed your family in the breakfast room, where the walls of windows look out at the views, and then relax in front of the stone fireplace in the family room at the other end of the kitchen. If you want to catch some breeze, slip through the French doors to the three-season porch, or wander down to the terrace and pool.
The finished lower level has a big rec room as well as a second kitchen and direct access to the heated pool. Perfect kid hang-out. Theres a large bedroom with its own bathroom down here, so it would work really well for the in-laws. Or a nanny.
Lots of bedrooms on the second floor. The master, as one would hope in a house like this, has loads of closets, a super-duper bathroom with heated floors and great views. There are four more bedrooms, all en-suite, and if you get tired of lounging in the first floor family room, youve got a couple of bonus rooms up here as well. One even has a fireplace.
So where are we? Surprisingly, Weston, close to the charming town center and schools, near the Merritt and not far from the Westport train. For more information, click right here . Asking price is $1,899,000.
