On the Market: Sophisticated former equestrian estate in Weston

Outside, the taupe-colored colonial at 61 River Road in the Lower Weston neighborhood has the appearance of a sprawling farmhouse complete with a gambrel roofline and dormers, and multiple barn-style doors. The facade is reminiscent of the former equestrian estate that once sat on this property.

The interior is quite the opposite, looking sophisticated yet offering a comfortable country life. This updated house boasts 14 spacious rooms, 7,639 square feet of living and entertaining space, an open concept floor plan befitting the modern era, and loads of character. The spacious main level features huge windows that look over the attractive property and former horse paddock, which was part of the Girse stable.
