Welcome to a one-of-a-kind contemporary home on the prestigious Governor’s Row section of Prospect Ave. Imagined by architect Henry Darbee, and influenced by the International Style, this stunning property is a private mountainside retreat with views of the Hartford skyline.
Copper doors draw you in to a private courtyard with koi pond. The living area has a fireplace and opens to the large deck for indoor-outdoor living. The kitchen includes granite counters, stainless appliances and counter seating. There is a wet bar, a dining room with a vaulted ceiling, skylights and built-in storage. Expansive windows, integrated sound and recessed lighting on dimmers, and an updated powder room complete the level.
Upstairs, a bright and airy suite is a private retreat with vaulted ceilings, full bath with jetted tub, walk-in closet, gas fireplace, and private balcony overlooking the City. An additional room with a half bath could be a study or bedroom.
The level below the living area includes two bedrooms and an updated full bath. The walk-out lower level features a family room with vaulted ceiling and fireplace. A second water feature is integrated into the patio just outside a wall of windows.
The home has solar, central air, a newer gas furnace, a 2-car garage, irrigation, wine storage, and laundry on the upper and lower levels.
This is a special property with majestic views and a sense of peacefulness unusual to find in such a convenient location. It must be experienced in person!
