Charming Colonial With Guest House on 3 Acres!

179 Silver Spring Rd, Wilton, CT 06897, USA
$729,000

Description

Located in a bucolic pocket of Fairfield County at the New York border, the Thaddeus Scott house sits charmingly behind a natural wall of rhododendron bushes. Wonderfully preserved, but updated for modern living, the residence features a three bedroom main house plus a one bedroom guest cottage.

Flagstone paths, stone walls and beautiful gardens create myriad ways to enjoy this special property. Entering through the front door you are greeted by a large family room with a double-sided wood-burning fireplace, relaxing window seat, period detailing and French doors that walk out to a private slate patio and vegetable garden. The adjoining original keeping room now serves as a sitting room and offers access to the partially finished lower level with laundry and a full bath. The dining room retains the feel of an antique farmhouse with wideboard flooring, a vaulted ceiling with wooden beams exposed red brick walls and a bay window. Continue into the newly updated kitchen with Thermador double ovens, a gas cooktop, granite counters and new hardwood floors, as well as a vaulted ceiling with exposed beams and French doors walking out to a rear deck. An updated full bath with tumbled marble tiles and wainscot detail and a master bedroom with a private screened porch complete the main floor.

Moving upstairs, the two bedrooms feature wideboard flooring and interesting period detailing including exposed framing.  A lovely and bright, updated full bath serves as an ensuite to one of the rooms, with the adjoining bedroom featuring a walk-in closet and built in bookcases.  These two rooms currently serve as a bedroom and sitting/dressing room suite, but could be easily returned to two separate rooms via the addition of a door. The choice is yours!

The two-story guest cottage is a fabulous place to use as a studio, office or quarters for visiting friends and family. The main level features exposed beams and a vaulted ceiling with a great room, bedroom and fabulous full bath. The upstairs includes a second bedroom that overlooks the serene gardens and woods beyond.

Avid gardeners, the current owners have created a magical place from which to enjoy the seasons year round. Perennial beds, spectacular mature trees, a vegetable garden, beautiful accent and specimen plants, stone walls and meandering paths create a bucolic setting that encourages you to take the time to smell the roses. With such a spectacular setting and too many improvements to list, this wonderful piece of history is ready for its new owner.
