These Picturesque Connecticut Listings Are Loaded with Fun-Filled Amenities
A $2,599,000, circa-1930 Weston home (pictured above) comes entirely renovated with every amenity for fun, inside and out. On the grounds, there’s a pool with a stone terrace, a pool-level butler’s pantry with an inset wine refrigerator and a cabana with a home gym, sauna and steam shower. The nearly 8,000-square-foot main house opens onto an entry hall with rustic wood-beamed ceilings and a herringbone-patterned brick fireplace. The salvaged-wood ceilings continue in the expansive living room, with its own brick fireplace, and the lovely kitchen with Viking appliances and yet another fireplace. The master suite comprises an entire level and offers a sitting room and two bathrooms, one of them with a marble soaking tub. In all, there are seven bedrooms, including a two-bedroom apartment above the garage, a space that has its own kitchen and stone fireplace. The 7.79-acre property is offered by Michelle Genovesi of Michelle&Company Real Estate, William Raveis.
