WESTON, Conn. The last house built on the 25-acre Lords Highway estate of Philip Smith in Weston is 3 years old and has never been occupied. It is now for sale for $1.625 million, a bargain according to Camelot Real Estate agent Vickie Kelley.
In a different world, this house would sell at a much higher price, she said.
Maybe its worth more because it spans 5,750 square feet and has 15 rooms. Maybe its worth more because it has a great room off the kitchen thats ideal for family activity while mom prepares a delicious meal in the thoroughly modern kitchen with a hand-crafted pine cook island. Maybe its worth more because of the master bedroom with a fireplace and an attached sanctuary that can be used for an office or game room.
These are just a few of the features of this country estate at 11 Laurel Lake W.
There is a formal living and dining room on the ground floor with a library off the living room with three book shelves. Also on the ground floor are a powder room, a cloak room and a butlers pantry off the kitchen with a wine cabinet.
A butterfly staircase extends to the master bedroom and four additional bedrooms, each with an en suite bath with a marble sink and subway tiling.
Also upstairs is a media/game room that is ideal for family fun and entertainment, a laundry room and a full walk-up attic thats perfect for storage.
Sit in the tub in the master bath and turn your head for an exquisite view of Laurel Lake.
There are 9-foot ceilings with insulated windows on the main floor that also provide exceptional views of the lake, which can be accessed via the fly stone walkway in the backyard.
Take the walkway to the lake or stay above where youll be sequestered in a stunning natural environment amid rhododendrons and hydrangeas, white birch and mature cedar trees.
The house at 11 Laurel Lake West is being shown by appointment and at an upcoming open house by Camelot Real Estate.
