WILTON, Conn. -- A four-bedroom Wilton Colonial on three park-like acres and designed by two well-known architects has come on the market for a price far less than comparable homes.
The home at 148 Hulda Hill Road is listed by Nancy Budd of William Raveis Real Estate for $810,000. The median sale price for a home in Wilton at the end of the third quarter was $820,000. Many 4-bedroom homes in Wilton, some with far less acreage, begin at $1 million or more. Click here for the complete listing.
“It’s a fantastic opportunity to own a private horse property,’’ said Budd, noting the property includes a 5-stall barn and is zoned for three horses. “It’s an incredible value.”
The home was originally built in 1933 by Almus Pratt Evans, a Harvard University graduate who worked frequently in New York City. John Kenyon Kinnear, who has handled projects in New York and Great Britain, re-designed the home in 1989. Kinnear believes successful design is a function of proportion, rhythm and balance, and he incorporates energy conservation and green designs in his work.
“This property is a perfect example of that,’’ Budd said.
Kinnear is also the President of the Board of Directors of the American Friends of the Georgian Group, which seeks to foster the appreciation and preservation of architecture, art and design from the reigns of George I to George IV in England. That influence is found in the home as well.
All four bedrooms are on the main floor of the house. The master bedroom was renovated in 2014 and offers marble floor and countertops.
The living room includes a fireplace and abundant natural light. A formal dining room and light and bright kitchen, including a center island, make for perfect entertaining. The family room is inviting for celebration gatherings. Nearly every room in the house has unobstructed views of the barn and meadow.
There are three full bathrooms, 3,235 square feet of living space, a pull-down attic and partially-finished lower level. All of the mechanical components have been updated as well.
“The home is meticulous,’’ Budd said. “It’s a tremendous value and it’s also close to Wilton Center. It offers quality and excellent craftsmanship, and has a delightful combination of antique details and current day luxuries."
