This is the American Dream, right? At least, it was for a lot of us growing up. Remember, for awhile I lived in Manhattan and we moved out to New Canaan when I was 12 to a pretty little antique on a quarter acre.
This five bedroom colonial with about 2 acres of flat land on a sunny cul-de-sac full of kids. Ride your bike down to the circle. Barbecue on the flagstone patio in the back. Wait on the covered front porch for the bus to pick you up in the morning. It's all here.
Inside, there is a drop-down living room that means extra height for the ceiling and windows. Very nice. White marble surround on the fireplace. Bright hardwood floors. Views of the spacious backyard and woods beyond.
Maybe I am biased, but I've been really excited to work on selling this listing. I know this is what everybody wants. People who move to New Canaan often want to be close to the village, but not so close that they hear the garbage trucks and the train whistle. They want a little bit of land, and preferably flat. They want to be on the West side because they think it's going to shave a few minutes off of their commute to New York City. This house is the whole package.
