Classic Shingle Chic
9 Mountain Road, Wilton CT
Offered at $1,259,000
The classics are referred to as such for a reason. Casablanca, The Beatles, PB&J—they just don’t get old. And so it is with the “Shingle-Style Colonial”. Sure you’ve seen it before, but it’s just so good every time, isn’t it? Especially when it’s wrapped in a gorgeous Mahogany porch, and polished off with Copper gutters and a toasty Cedar roof – Oh, yes!
4 Full, 2 Half Baths
Party in the back?
Meanwhile, the Great Room is where this home begins to let its proverbial hair down…
Yes, please to that honed marble island and the wall of windows beckoning us to the patio outside. There’s a built-in grill, refrigerator, and spa complete with surround sound out there that’s not too shabby either.
We’re particularly fond of A) that kitchen, B) that vaulted ceiling with copper “Bell Nook”, and C) the whole awesome openness of it all.
We love the main suite’s double-sided fireplace, radiant heated floors, air bubble tub and walk-in shower with – YES – 9 sprayers! Perfect after a hard night of entertaining. And, don’t worry about your guests. With 3 other bedrooms and a full ensuite room on the 3rd floor, there’s plenty of space to crash.
Movie theater, bar, lounge, sauna. Uhh…Yes, yes, and, hell yes!
A house for the over achiever.
Full disclosure: The current owners only moved in a short 2 years ago, but we happen to know (and love) the folks that are moving on from this space so we can attest – first hand – to the fact that their sacrifice is your gain! It was already turnkey when they bought it, but they proceeded to polish off every remaining detail. Things like restoring the cedar shingle roof, upgrading the HVAC with Nest controls, installing a dehumidifying system, restoring the marble and limestone countertops, repointing the driveway (who does that?) and even upgrading the central vacuum to include a sweep port in the kitchen just to name a few.
