Welcome to Golden Hill, an architectural treasure with picturesque landscape and extraordinary curb appeal that is much-admired by passers-by. Whether relaxing after a morning workout amidst a gentle breeze on the terrace or enjoying an evening of entertaining framed by a splendid sunset, Golden Hill provides an exceptionally-tranquil feeling of home to be shared and celebrated in every season.
Built in 1929 by Charles E. Olmstead, and certified as the Charles Olmstead House by the Wilton Historical Society, this 3,170 sq ft home (with 1,164 sq ft separate cottage) has been thoughtfully and masterfully renovated by award-winning Country Club Homes to suit today’s modern lifestyle.
Highest attention to designer details and custom craftsmanship showcase light-filled interiors, embraced by views of sweeping lawns, flowering gardens, pergola-covered paths, 200-year-old maple trees, fields of springtime daffodils, stone walls, and storybook white fencing with cannonball gate closure. The charm of several Dutch doors complements each entrance and introduces dazzling interior spaces of quality and functionality.
A captivating primary foyer features antique brick herringbone flooring that carries through to the laundry area with soapstone counter and shared mudroom. From the ground up, other aesthetic highlights include an arched entryway, intricate millwork, shiplap walls, designer wallpaper accents, a peaked ceiling, Klaff’s lighting, custom cabinetry, and a beautiful credenza with glass top. Built-ins, a coat closet, and secondary access to the stone terrace and back yard oasis complete this integral room of the house.
The adjoining grand hall is a visual delight and leads through the main level perfectly. The powder room’s luxe finishes include a beautiful antique mirrored vanity. There is a welcoming layout that makes meandering in any direction a thoughtful connection to any one of the gracious living spaces.
Frequent stops at the chic butler’s pantry transition seamlessly into the luxurious kitchen designed to captivate the senses with every amenity. Chefs can indulge their guests in style while tackling favorite recipes with state-of-the-art appliances, including a Viking six-burner range with griddle, accented by a magnificent Carrera Marble backsplash with pot filler, dual SubZero refrigerators, Wolf Gourmet microwave, Miele dishwasher, and walk- in pantry. Large center island with honed marble counter and large apron-style farm sink features plenty of seating for friends and family.
Al fresco dining with splendid sunsets on the expansive stone terrace is a coveted Golden Hill experience. Lovely indoor and outdoor environments make entertaining at home a true pleasure. An inviting columned living room with elegant fireplace is center of attention with walls of glass to enjoy sun-drenched light and scenic views through every window. The formal dining room is a stunning place to regularly gather to linger over fine meals with good company.
Another centerpiece to the main level adjoining the dining room is the remarkable family room. Focal points in this room include the stone fireplace with built-in media, wall of custom cabinetry with window seat, shiplap ceiling and walls, staircase with window accents, gleaming hardwood floors, Dutch door entry, and an especially sweet view of the tree swing adorning the front yard.
Upstairs, the master en-suite features a charming window seat to admire the views and a Waterworks deluxe bathroom with spa-like atmosphere provides an ideal retreat to begin, and end, each cherished day. Two walk-in-closets with built-ins, plus a third closet, provide ample room to keep everything nicely organized. The remaining bedrooms are stylish and spacious, and served by a large full bath with porcelain floors and double vanity.
A walk-up attic provides convenient access to an always useful upper storage area, while the full basement provides an equally convenient option for the lower level. The home features many rooms with wide plank hardwood floors, surround sound, shiplap walls, linen & silk wallpaper highlights (that include designer Phillip Jeffries and Serena Lilly), Waterworks baths, Castelli Marble, Klaff’s lighting, Rocky Mountain hardware, and Restoration hardware.
A gated entrance and pea stone driveway with cobblestone apron welcome you home to the two-car garage with rooftop weather vane. Even with such an idyllic location to call home, you are just minutes to Wilton schools, Wilton Library, Wilton YMCA, the Village Market, and boutique shopping and fine dining. While being located only a few minutes away from Metro-North Railroad, Route 7, and I-95 for easy commuting to Manhattan, you can also enjoy the lovely convenience of scenic strolls out of your front door to the Wilton Riding Club and Black Farm walking trail.
Golden Hill’s separate, two-level cottage offers many creative possibilities to accommodate a pool house, home office, or grand recreational suite for the family. The entire property has been professionally landscaped (and is also regularly maintained) by Hoffman Landscapes of Wilton. Please note that the property is serviced by a 5-bedroom septic to accommodate this former 4-bedroom home.
