Guest house at 232 Newtown Turnpike, Weston on Byebrook Estate.
Today, Byebrook contains 13.06 acres with a main residence, a large guest house, greenhouse and barn-style detached garage. The hunting lodge is now the great room. Wien eventually added other rooms to create the residence – a colonial farmhouse, the agent said. The chandelier in the great room was imported from Germany in the early 1930s, she said. The main house features three fireplaces, exposed beams, and 8,791 square feet “of grandeur and grace,” the agent said.
The main house was built in 1935 and one of the more recent owners, the Paukers, enlarged the original structure to accommodate their family. The current owners, who purchased Byebrook in 2007, fully renovated and modernized it while maintaining the same footprint. “We also kept and restored all the original wood and stonework in the great room.” less
