House of the week – Weston

When I started writing these Wednesday House of the Week posts I imagined I’d find all sorts of interesting homes at various price points but it really hasn’t been the case. So many homes around Fairfield County look great from the outside and/or have a beautiful location but then you get inside and list of updates is miles long. Outdated narrow oriental stair runners, cherry cabinets, brass shower fixtures from 80s, etc. Happy to report though that 2 homes featured here are already under contract! Yay!

This week’s house is in Weston: 6 beds, 6 baths, almost 9000 sq.ft.

I know lot of people prefer to have the pool right close to the house, easy access to kitchen and bathrooms but it is nice to have it farther away so you are not looking at closed pool 9 months out of the year. I really like the circular driveway also.

Home office: I like the dark wood and white paint combo, modern but warm and welcoming.

Not the largest kitchen but nice view of the fireplace.

Living area is really spacious, the butler’s pantry is off to the side. 2nd fridge is in there too. I am seeing some newer homes combining pantry and butler’s pantry with 2nd fridge and double ovens.

I don’t know how they watch the TV but it nice not to have it over the fireplace and dominate the room.

Master bath is outdated for $1.8M, esp that tile.

Did the tile shop have a sale they couldn’t say no to?
