How better to describe this spectacular Norman-style brick & oak-timbered masterpiece of a manor house than magnifique? Just as French noblemen saw their country manoir as an elegant escape, award-winning Connecticut architect Dinyar Wadia custom designed an enchanting 4-acre estate that’s authentic and warm with every luxury amenity. Designed with the finest detailing & craftsmanship, it features soaring coffered ceilings, custom European mahogany windows & copious use of quarter-sawn oak. Weathered leather & Ralph Lauren fabrics provide a warm palette. A dramatic two-story foyer invites you into a circular flow connecting a splendid dining room, intimate library & classic and informal kitchen that leads to a generous Great Room bathed in light by large west-facing windows. The second level features six ensuite bedrooms, including a dazzling primary suite with sitting room, fireplace, dual dressing rooms & luxurious bath. There is so much stealth, state of the art efficiency here: Geothermal heating, integrated Audio/Video/Security servers, four floor elevator & 400sf mirrored gym. A 2000sf two-bed two-bath third floor suite welcomes extended family & guests. It's the epitome of the carefree, but “connected” lifestyle. Wadia believes, “A house without landscaping is a person without a soul” & created unobstructed views of rolling lawns, manicured gardens, honed stone terraces, tennis court, pool house, saltwater pool/spa & naturally, a whimsical custom-made treehouse!
