High-end renovation with original features and charm in tact: hand-hewn beams and accents, this beautifully curated, tasteful and comfortable home is a modern take on the horse barn with exquisite style and craftsmanship. A 1926 polo barn has been expanded and modernized to meet the needs of the 21st century family. Set on 3.7 acres with flat fields, small pond, and groves of birch trees, this home’s romantic interior with wide board and stone floors, old beamed ceilings and 3 stone fireplaces is the perfect peaceful haven for a modern life.

  • Remarks Public Addendum: After a short 3-minute drive from downtown New Canaan or 5-minute drive to the train from NYC, you will arrive at a gated entrance. As it opens, you will find yourself on a winding gravel driveway, guiding you up to the long open lawn, welcoming you to this charming country home. The private setting makes you feel as though you are tucked away in a country retreat, hidden from the cares of the world. Indoor living transitions seamlessly to outdoor living spaces, with both covered and screened porches, open patios with pergolas and a fire pit. The expansive lawn, where the polo matches were played, is perfect for wonderful outdoor parties, friendly games of football or throwing a Frisbee. Two lily pad ponds are home to frogs, fish and other wildlife. A country home would not be complete without a chicken-coop. The guest suite, or au pair suite, with a private outdoor entrance is off of the front porch. The property has a barn that is fit with a 3 cars garage, a full bath and laundry room; and is currently used as a home gym and workroom. The barn also includes a loft that makes a great recreation space. Many elements of the former stables are echoed in the details. Tubs, sinks, tile, beams, flooring, stone and lighting were reclaimed from antique buildings, creating the illusion of being original to the stables. The kitchen has an Old World feel, with appliances being integrated into the cabinetry and a fabulous French Lacanche stove. Three fireplaces warm the living spaces and the master suite. The master suite has a soaring vaulted ceiling, designed with reclaimed beams and a reading nook up in the loft. Off of the master bedroom is a breathtaking master bathroom. One can end the day with a long soak in the deep copper tub or a relaxing time in the steam shower. If you are interested in owning this magical home, please call or text to arrange an appointment. Come experience it?s beauty, charm and uniqueness in person.
