A Cozy Yet Sophisticated Antique Home on Silvermine River Is Up for Sale
This sweet antique overlooks the Silvermine River in New Canaan, within walking distance of the newly reopened GrayBarns Inn and Tavern, as well as the Silvermine Arts Center. The circa-1846 Gothic Revival cottage started life as a humble harness shop—and still sports rough-hewn ceiling beams, stone interior walls and an original fireplace. Architect Rob Sanders’ vision was “a new house wrapped around an old house” and he realized it beautifully, especially in the all-white kitchen with its marble countertops, expansive island and easy access to a deck with views over the river. The property, which also offers a stone-wrapped terrace, an artist’s studio and a putting green, is listed for $1.149 million with Lisa Ferrante and Judy Dunn of Houlihan Lawrence.
