WESTON, Conn. Ive been saying it for years: The town of Weston is Fairfield Countys best-kept secret, said Bunny Mostad, who is a Realtor with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Westport. "Top-rated schools, an emphasis on strong community involvement plus respect for the land through conservation and land trusts provide the ideal town. All this plus easy access to major commutation. When you travel a little farther inland, you get a lot more for your dollar.
The seven-bedroom, 7,700-square-foot home at 25 Hemlock Ridge in Weston is a good example. Tagged at $3.2 million and set on 4 acres, it offers a pool and tennis court. The backyard overlooks the Saugatuck River, creating the scenic appeal of a vacation home.
A canoe is outside just waiting to be used, said Mostads daughter and real estate partner, Deb Alderson. Its like a resort, but you dont have to leave your home.
As the weather gets warm, you'll want to keep the party outside. With a court-side gazebo and several terraces, the home is ideal for outdoor barbecues and summer entertainment.
The Hemlock Ridge estate is as beautiful on the inside as it is on the outside, though. One side of the kitchen is framed with wall-to-wall windows, as is the homes entryway and home office.
And for people who love to read, there is a library with a fireplace perfect for when the weather cools on a chilly Connecticut night and all you want to do is curl up with a good book.
