Warm and welcoming gathering spaces abound at One Fourteen Elm... a lifestyle home with multigenerational appeal, designed for keeping family, community, and outdoor ambiance thoughtfully connected.
Transforming this lovely property into the treasure it is today has been orchestrated as a personal project for renowned custom home builder Walter Cromwell and Country Club Homes. The structure’s beautiful lines were incorporated to create a modern residence featuring state-of-the-art finishes, embraced by exceptional style and comfort.
Set on a meticulous oversized lot in one of New Canaan’s premier neighborhoods, charm and character radiate from every corner of this sprawling abode. Work and play are within walking distance in every direction, to the picturesque town center, schools, rails to NYC, Waveny Park, YMCA, and an endless array of shopping, dining, and recreational activities.
Direct access to New Canaan amenities via sidewalks on South Avenue and Main Street provide safe and easy entree for the entire family to enrich daily living beyond your doorstep. Interior and exterior spaces are delightfully refreshing, each focused on creating a relaxing refuge for everyone, including an in-law or nanny in their own custom private suite.
Separate garden patios, accessible from various rooms throughout the residence, deliver seamless transitions to inviting outdoor spaces to linger amidst a landscape nestled among mature trees and lush leafy and flowering plantings.
An enchanting pea stone driveway with granite pillars and gated entrance accent the home’s attractive exterior, featuring an inviting covered front porch, Dutch style doors, cupola with zinc-coated roof and finial, and stone walls and walkways.
The indoor-outdoor lounge with full glass garage-style door is another favorite spot in the house to enjoy in every season. Open to one of the stone patios, this entire space is great for watching TV, sitting around the fire pit, playing backyard games, and would also make for a great poolhouse option, if desired.
Interior rooms elegantly showcase Character Oak floors with driftwood stain finish, achieving a fresh and neutral look which complements light-filled interiors with scenic landscape views. A spacious foyer at the main entrance gracefully leads to a formal living room featuring a fireplace and stunning barrel-vaulted ceiling, overlooking the expansive covered front porch.
The nearby chef’s kitchen and adjoining dining room opens with French doors to a garden-style outdoor patio, perfectly situated for al fresco nights with family and friends. Beyond the sliding barn-style door, the hall leads to Nestled Elm’s tremendous family room with gas fireplace, adjoining custom built-in office nook, two bedrooms with Jack and Jill full bathroom, and multiple outdoor access points to the front and back yards and their respective patios.
Flanking the eastern side of the home is the master suite, providing a private sanctuary with double walk-in closets, an optional home office/nursery/dressing room, luxurious bathroom, separate full bathroom, and secondary laundry closet.
On the garden level, the spectacular indoor/outdoor lounge features an overhead glass door providing an unobstructed connection to nature, overlooking a Bluestone patio and backyard with optional pool site. Come and go in style using the well-placed mudroom with custom built-ins, located central to the outdoor patio, indoor lounge, and garage entry.
Completing this level is a laundry room with custom built-in cabinetry and hideaway folding table, full bathroom, bedroom with double closets, and 1200+ square feet of unfinished space (in addition to the 4000 square foot home) available to customize with many possible options, including a theater room, wet bar, recreation room, home gym, living room, expanded in-law suite, and more!
A one-mile stroll from Elm Place to Elm Street, New Canaan’s primary downtown district, affords your family a lifestyle that connects you with the abundant amenities available in one of Connecticut’s finest communities.
