On the Market: A convenient and comfort Westport colonial
WESTPORT — Convenience and comfort are combined to stunning effect in the white clapboard colonial house with forest green shutters at 93 Newtown Turnpike.
Residents never need worry about their vehicles running low on fuel or opening the door to an empty refrigerator because the house is located only steps away from The Country Store and Deli at the intersection of Wilton Road (Route 33) and Newtown Turnpike. The Merritt Parkway is only a half mile away.
The house, which was built in 1993, is meticulously maintained. It sits on a two-acre level property that is fully fenced. A flagstone path leads to the four columns at the covered front porch entrance, which is flanked by flower beds lined in Belgium block along the front of the house. The front door has sidelights and opens to a large foyer that can accommodate furniture. The wide staircase has a decorative newel post and balusters.
The house contains 3,560 square feet of living space on the main and second levels and another 1,400 square feet in the lower level. The formal living room has a marble fireplace with a decorative mantel. The formal dining room has chair railing. On the other side of the foyer the family room has a fireplace that is flanked by floor-to-ceiling bookshelves and lower cabinets. There are interior shutters on the windows of all three rooms.
The kitchen was well-planned to accommodate serious cooks. Its thoughtful design includes a built-in desk area, hardwood floor, double stainless sinks, glass-front cabinets, and new appliances including a Wolf five-burner range top on the center island, Bosch refrigerator, and Electrolux double wall ovens. The eat-in area has sliding doors to the wood deck, flagstone deck, and backyard.
Off the kitchen is a back hall that includes a spacious powder room, laundry room with a utility sink, and a door to the deck and yard. It also provides access to the two-car attached garage.
