On the Market: Dramatic split staircase in 'casual yet elegant' Weston colonial house

The colonial house at 5 Overbrook Lane in Lower Weston is classic and "casual yet elegant," providing 15 rooms and 6,412 square feet of living and entertaining space on a grand scale or for intimate gatherings. It's on the market for $1,195,000.

The gray house with black shutters features spacious rooms as well as lots of intimate settings inside and outdoors on the level property of just over two acres. It was built in 2000 on a corner lot and Beaver Brook courses through one part of the property, although far enough away from the house as not to threaten it with the possibility of water damage. In fact, this babbling brook is much more of a calming feature for residents to sit along and relax.
