Setting

T

he landscape around West Road extends into gracious hills, spotted with woodlands and small ponds and is framed by beautiful homes. As one of New Canaan’s primary roads, West Road attracted clusters of settlements in the early 19th century that developed into one of the district centers from which ultimately New Canaan formed into the affluent and vibrant community it is today. The area beyond Country Club Road is constituted with the largest parcels for all of New Canaan and 559 West Road itself is situated in a curated park-like setting next to a protected land trust. Neighboring grazing grounds for horses and woodlands that extend beyond a pond along the eastern border of the property are further providing seclusion and country feel. The house is situated on the highest point of the property, oriented towards the grand lawn with its majestic trees and the pond beyond. The 5,5 acre grounds are designed like a park with all landscape features corresponding back to the house in a constant dialogue between the inside and outside. Manicured gardens are grouped around the private tennis court, spa and the spectacular oval pool.


Spacious Living

T

he gracious house is carefully responding to its surroundings in scale and orientation, with balanced setbacks, well crafted detailing and the interplay of changing materials. The grand entry hall is formal yet welcoming and anchored by a beautifully detailed wood paneled fireplace. The overall layout is grouped around this nucleus with arched doorways leading to the ground floor amenities, large family kitchen and living rooms. Despite its size, the overall flow and the rooms themselves feel intimate and warm, featuring cozy areas for gathering for all occasions. The house was conceptualized to entertain and provides generous space for family and friends. Elaborate detailing articulates the traditional architecture of the house, emphasizing its unique character that is experienced throughout. The exterior is ever present from the inside with many windows and French doors connecting through views with landscape features in the garden. Natural light spills deep into the rooms, accentuating their crafted coffered ceilings, abundant moldings and wood paneled walls. The kitchen is designed as open and spacious space that serves as central hub for family activities. A grand stove features a spectacular backsplash with a custom floral tile theme and ornate millwork surround. All cabinetry, countertop, appliances and central island are skillfully integrated into the architectural design with opulent detailing.
