Château Montagne – $2,400,000


11 Dogwood Lane, Weston, Connecticut
A French country home set atop a mountain ridge at the end of a cul-de-sac.
Breathtaking views transport you to another world, while still being within quick and easy commuting distance to New York City via Metro North train, I-95 and the Merritt Parkway … in picturesque Weston, Connecticut—known for its top-ranked schools and rural yet sophisticated lifestyle.

Reminiscent of an old-world country estate, this home is set up for comfortable living and entertaining with all the amenities of today’s modern needs.

Custom designed and constructed by artisans and expert craftsman with attention to detail, it is matched solely by the serenity of the surrounding vistas.

Every room is flawlessly appointed with unexpected touches that speak of both quality workmanship and finishes, as well as unique decorative flair.

A dramatic enfilade of arches ties together a thoughtfully conceived open and airy floor plan, with front and back staircases.

Designed and constructed by the award winning Judith Larson, the home features 2×8 construction with deep recessed window sills typically found only in European estates.

Upon entering this home, the builder’s proficiency for perfection is immediately noticeable, with 10 foot ceilings (11 feet in the Family Room); arched casement windows; solid Mahogany custom entry doors with iron transom; coffered ceilings with exposed wood beams and a massive limestone fireplace in the Living Room; Not to mention hand-crafted iron grill work along a soaring, curved staircase and balcony in the central Foyer; French boiserie-inspired decorative panels and crown molding in the Dining Room; and a perfect balance of natural stone and wood floors and custom carpeting throughout, including an imported Italian mosaic medallion and limestone floor in the powder room.

Visible through two stories of glass and double arched French doors to the back patio is a truly breathtaking view, overlooking miles of bucolic countryside.

The Kitchen has it all: daily dining area; solid wood custom designed cabinetry with hand-carved motifs, breakfast bar; octagonal center island; desk area; commercial appliances; tons of counter, cabinet and storage space; a herringbone tile floor and a separate walk-in pantry with ample storage shelves, cabinets, countertop and freezer.

A romantic master bedroom suite with a separate sitting room has its own balcony overlooking the vast valley view, a tray ceiling, Quimper tiled fireplace, built-in bookcases, and arched windows with cushioned window seats.

The master spa bath replicates another enfilade of arches (but with barreled ceilings this time) featuring a hand-painted tompe-l’œil mural.

A flexible floor plan allows for a nanny or in-law suite. Plus, a third-story bonus room is great for a home office, recording studio,hobby or craft room. And, a full, partially finished walkout basement with private entrance is great for use as a playroom, home theater or exercise room.
