GREENWICH, Conn. -- Only one newly-constructed home in the $5-$6 million price range is currently listed with a Greenwich address. The six-bedroom Colonial at 311 Stanwich Road melds contemporary and traditional architecture with privacy, convenience and charm.
The house features 6 1/2 bathrooms,7,600 square feet of living space and 4.23 acres. Pam Chiapetta of Coldwell Banker in Greenwich is listing the property for $5,495,000.
“The open feel to it gives it a contemporary touch,’’ Chiapetta said. “That’s what people want now. But it also has some traditional elements, such as mouldings, chair rails, paneling and decorative ceilings. It’s a nice blend of both.”
Joe Pagliarulo of Darien-based Traditional Building & Design built the home, and has worked with Chiapetta extensively during her real estate career. She said Pagliarulo, a second-generation homebuilder and with a background in art, brilliantly balanced the contemporary and traditional touches.
“To get the balance exactly right is very hard,’’ Chiapetta said. “He really has met that challenge. It’s very easy to go too far in one direction or the other. Incorporating contemporary and traditional elements is one of the newer trends in homebuilding.”
The house features dramatic floor to ceiling windows, allowing for amazing natural light. The first floor includes a living room, family room, breakfast room, den and sleek gourmet kitchen. Stainless steel appliances, marble counters and large windows are some of the features in the one-of-a-kind kitchen.
The master suite is the centerpiece to the second floor. All of the bedrooms have private bathrooms. The master suite includes a soaking tub, sauna, a folding sauna bench and shower.
“The builder really pulled out all the stops in the kitchen and the master bathroom,’’ Chiapetta said. “They seem to be very important to people these days. They spend so much time in the kitchen, and many people find their bathrooms to be a place to relax and unwind.”
The home features four fireplaces. The lower level includes a bedroom, bath, wine cellar, home theater, workout room and family area. Dark hardwood floors run throughout the house as well.
The home is also a “Smart home” -- appliances, lighting, heating, air conditioning, TVs, computers, entertainment audio and video systems and more are capable of communicating with one another and can be controlled remotely.
“Its fabulous light and open feel is going to surprise people,’’ Chiapetta said. “I think everybody likes the open concept. It makes it easier to see what everybody is doing. Certainly mothers like it to see where their kids are and what they are doing.”
The property sits in a 2-acre zone in Central Greenwich, but has more than four. It is also convenient to the Merritt Parkway, Interstate 95, mass transportation and downtown Stamford. The property sits close to the Stamford border and is also near Mianus River Park.
