19 Indian Head Road - Riverside, CT - MLS
This iconic Riverside Georgian is almost entirely new construction, but embraces its pedigree. The current owners capitalized on the generous scale in the original core, while accommodating a contemporary plan for living. Multiple additions on every floor, and two total renovations leave only a hint of yesterday marked by high ceilings and quality detail throughout four levels of living space. Rooms on the first floor flow easily balancing beautiful formal rooms and newly created large light-filled informal spaces. The wide center hall is flanked by dining room with adjacent butler's pantry, and living room that extends to both a comfortable south-facing study as well as a fabulous family room. The gourmet kitchen with two islands and breakfast bay is the heart of the house opening to family room & a step down informal lounge with three exposures beyond.
A noteworthy mudroom, unique outdoor sports lockers, & an unfolding home office concealed behind cabinetry are just a few of many well-planned features for a high functioning household. Upstairs, there are seven large bedrooms, five of which are on the second floor including a master suite beyond compare with a fireplace in the sitting room, outfitted closets, lavish bath, & beamed ceiling bedroom flooded with light that opens to a private balcony perfect for sunning or stargazing. The third floor bedroom suites share an upstairs sitting area, and are large enough for long term guests.
There is room to spread out with a second family room or ""man cave"" on the lower level, as well as an exercise room that doubles as a playroom complete with cupboards and full bath .The private, over-half-acre yard provides year 'round enjoyment. Fully screened by gorgeous plantings, the interior extends outside with multiple terraces linking the first floor & garden level spaces. Proximate to trains, schools & shopping, this is livable beauty, & a unique opportunity to own one of Riverside's most amazing properties.
