Nick Churton of Mayfair International Realty reflects on a new home in New Canaan, CT with a real family focus.
Sometimes busy people with growing families just don’t have the time to look after older homes. They have better things to do. And the problem with older homes is that they do need upkeep. Over time bits wear out or fall off and need repair or replacement. So the answer for many buyers is a new home – especially one that looks like an old one. Its the perfect partner – all good looks and no bad habits.
An excellent example of this is 362 South Avenue, New Canaan, Connecticut. Architect Louise Brooks of Brooks & Falotico Associates, and interior designers Petra and Whitney Roberts of Boxwood Home & Interiors really get it. Together they have produced a family house that is not just made of the right stuff, it is in the perfect place.
I have always thought the very best thing about New Canaan is that the community is geared to families, and to bringing up children in a way that kids will never forget nor ever wish too.
New Canaan is not just a place to live it is a place to grow. From the pretty town centre to the amazing range of sports and cultural facilities, there is something for everyone in the family.
The local schools have just about more dollars spent on each child than almost any other public schools in the US, and accordingly Forbes magazine gauge New Canaan as close to the best city in the US to live and learn.
So I was impressed when I saw that 362 South Avenue is only four blocks away from New Canaan High School and Saxe Middle School. And it’s not much further for a parent or two to walk to New Canaan railway station either. Manhattan is only forty-five minutes away down the line.
