Most of the major websites where we (Realtors) market our listings has one major flaw - the inability to hear the true story of a home, before a buyer enters the home. Here is that true story of 15 New Canaan Way, from my perspective.
I said certain things about my last listing, 10 Leslie Lane, indicating this was a perfect purchase for a buyer. I might say the same thing about this home, but for different reasons.
This home also has it all, it is a colonial style home, located in West Norwalk, literally seconds from the Merritt, but not so close that the highway causes additional noise pollution. It is tucked back in a cul-de-sac of an association of similar homes, that is routinely maintained generating a complex of beauty.
As you enter the home you immediately enter an airy space, complete with cathedral ceilings and skylights fully providing ample natural light to the room. As with all center-hall colonials, you have the option to go right up the stairs. This living room also features hardwood floors, and a charming 2-sided gas fireplace that connects the living room to the dining room. The dining room also has great natural light, due to large, double-pane windows on two out of three walls. This space opens into an eat in kitchen, also in immaculate condition.
The eat-in-kitchen is a large space, with clean-white cabinets, and green countertops. The extra space allows for a kitchen table, next to the windows and back door overlooking the lush, green yard. The kitchen has everything you would imagine, dishwasher and large refrigerator, and sink overlooking the cutout into the living room. There is also no absence of counter or cabinet space.
Down the first-level hallway, there is access to the garage, the basement, and a laundry room. It also features an expansive in-law suite or master suite on this level, complete with walk-in closet and full bathroom. The basement has 9+ foot ceilings, and a huge floor plan, perfect candidate for a future, finished basement. The potential in this home does not stop there - if you have no need for a master bedroom on the main level, opening a wall into that bedroom from the kitchen would create a den or family room. Or, full demolition of the kitchen and this wall would create the possibility of creating a HUGE chef-quality kitchen. The possibilities here are endless, and depending on your budget, possibly inexpensive with some creativity.
Otherwise, upstairs, you get a spacious floor plan, one of the biggest I have seen. This leads to large bathrooms, bedrooms, and closet space. The master suite features a double sink, jacuzzi tub, and stand-up shower. The walk-in closets in this room, and the other bedrooms are also the shopper's dream. Otherwise, with a third level walk-up, there is an additional room, for a playroom, den, or otherwise, with it's own full bathroom.
Given the other homes on the market that are currently listed, and the turn=key property before you, this home at $699,000 is truly priced to move. With all the checks on a checkoff list for buyers, including the ability to expand and change, with great potential, this home is yours for the taking!
