Originally built by the Staples family – 1477 Congress offers a perfect balance. This federal colonial offers the best of both worlds, with curb appeal and charm abundant, yet completely restored and updated for today’s lifestyle. Set back on a winding country road, complete with stone walls and quintessential red barn, the home is on nearly 2 acres of easy-to-maintain, lush and professionally landscaped grounds abutting open space. Upon first approach, there is an immediate sense of warmth and welcome. Entering thru your front door to an uncommonly spacious foyer and front-facing living room, surrounded by flower-box dressed, oversized windows and centered by a wood-burning fireplace with crisp white mantle and marble surround. With a natural flow, one comes to your cozy family room, also featuring a wide-mouthed, wood-burning fireplace (with beehive brick oven) and nice nooks and crannies. An added treat, your office/den and partial bathroom (remodeled) is privately located off the family room. Come to the heart of the home – the bright, newly renovated kitchen has banquette style seating overlooking the side yard, a spacious eat-in area, vaulted ceiling with skylight, stainless appliances, subway tile backsplash, newly added breakfast bar and white granite countertops. An unexpected benefit is the large, renovated, mudroom off the kitchen (not included in square footage), offering a great storage space for shoes, bags and personal items for organization and weather-appropriate entry with stone flooring. Upstairs, the master suite is a quiet escape, centered by a fireplace, featuring a walk-in closet and beautiful hardwood flooring. Three additional, spacious bedrooms and a renovated full bathroom complete your second floor. A great bonus is the walk-up attic with peg and beam construction that could be much additional space in a potential renovation. All of this in a completely turn-key, updated and spacious home, with an ease-of-flow floorplan and extremely convenient location that is just minutes to shopping, dining, schools, commute, close to train (that still has parking spots available), and walk to golf course and trails. Welcome to Greenfield Hill, Fairfield at its best. One Commission Only Is Due And Payable Upon Title Passing. Information is deemed reliable but not guaranteed.
