On the market: New home showcases array of features
Published 6:25 am, Friday, September 4, 2015
The award-winning builder of this newly constructed Colonial at 3 Moss Ledge Road has features that are more often seen in custom construction than built on spec — and those features are impressive.
According to the website of the Norwalk-based builder, Nest Development, “We develop and build homes designed to live up to our name.” They have feathered this nest with 7,115 square feet of living space on four finished levels and included custom built-ins throughout the house, not just in the expected locations like the mudroom and library.
The house has 8-foot doors, a heated three-car garage, four wood-burning fireplaces with marble surrounds, additional cable outlets, upgraded Cat 5 wiring and wiring for a video camera system. The mechanicals are top-of-the-line and are installed inside the insulation envelope for optimal efficiency and quiet operation.
It has classic architectural features that combine seamlessly with modern function and high-end style, as would be expected of a Home Builders Association of Connecticut Award-winning builder of luxury houses. The house has an open layout for today’s lifestyle and extensive use of glass offers expansive views of the private grounds of just over an acre.
