NEW CANAAN, Conn. -- A new listing at 23 Dan’s Highway in New Canaan seems perfectly suited to millennial buyers or downsizers.

The four-bedroom, 3.5 bath Nantucket style Cape offers turn-key living with manageable square footage and acreage. It is listed for $1,895,000 by Marsha Charles of Coldwell Banker Previews International.

“This is not one of those mega mansions,’’ Charles said. “It’s a gem of a house. You feel like you’re in Nantucket.”

The home includes 3,302 square feet. The first floor includes two bedrooms, including the master suite, kitchen, dining room, study, living room and den. There is also a wine cellar and mud room leading in from the garage.

“They added the master suite in 2004 with a cathedral ceiling,’’ Charles said. “It has hand hewn beams, and the whole house looks authentic. It has been updated and well-cared for.”

The second floor includes two bedrooms, full bath, a laundry room and common area. The house was built in 1936, but updates and maintenance make the home appear far younger.

“What excites me about the home is the attention to detail throughout,’’ Charles said. “The house is superlatively maintained. Everything the owners have done is to the Nth degree.”

That includes the exterior, where a pressure-treated cedar roof will not require any maintenance. A pool house adds nearly 500 square feet of living space and a heated inground, saline pool is just steps from the covered porch.

Perfectly manicured gardens and landscaping add to the appeal of the property, with everything from magnolia, apple, and cherry trees to perennial, vegetable and herb gardens. The house has been featured on the New Canaan Garden Tour.

“The magnificence of the property is going to surprise some potential buyers,’’ Charles said. “It’s very unassuming if you’re just driving by, you don’t realize the privacy and serenity. There are lovely native stone walls around the property and custom Adirondack fencing. I’ve never seen a property like this in New Canaan.”

New Canaan zoning laws call for four acres for homes in this section of town, but this parcel has been grandfathered with its two acres. “All of the property is usable and open,’’ Charles said.
