Deeds & Don'ts: Early Bloomers

Deeds & Don'ts: Early Bloomers

One of the snowiest Februarys on record meant the 2015 market got off to a slow start. But come March, brokers noticed a pick up in traffic, thanks, in part, to indications from the Fed that mortgage rates will increase sometime soon. Sellers, too, are starting to list their homes, which is “a wise move,” says Becky Walsh of William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty. “They’ll have a leg up on sellers who are waiting until the grass is green and their gardens are in full bloom.” Here, a look at six spectacular listings, from a literary landmark in New Canaan to a Greenwich gem with its own three-hole golf course.

Deeds & Don'ts: Small Homes with Awesome Amenities

Deeds & Don'ts: Small Homes with Awesome Amenities

It’s not hard to find an impressive big house or a small house with more modest charms. What’s difficult is locating a gem of a home that’s been lavished with fine finishes and awesome amenities but that also clocks in at 3,000 square feet or fewer—or so they say. In actual fact, even in a state known for its grand estates, Connecticut offers a wealth of small wonders, including antique farmhouses, brand-new townhomes and everything in between.

Deeds & Don'ts: Romantic Winterludes

Deeds & Don'ts: Romantic Winterludes

February is the month when we celebrate the great indoors. With the weather outside still frightful—some combination of snowy, sleety, gray and cold—few can resist the urge to nest for the next few weeks. So this column is dedicated to places and spaces for just that, whether the nesting’s done at the hearth, in a cozy kitchen or romantic master suite, or all around a home built to accommodate house parties and weekend guests.

Deeds & Don'ts: Homes with Grand Kitchens

Deeds & Don'ts: Homes with Grand Kitchens

Realtors report that the heart of the home has to function as just that: a space to gather for family meals (sorry, dining room), entertain, do homework, watch movies, hang out and, oh yes, prepare food. The most common complaint about the kitchens in older homes is that they were designed as remote rooms for cooks and servants—a la Downton Abbey—with no connection to where family life is lived. So topping the “ideal kitchen” list is an easy flow into a family or great room, a formal dining room, preferably with a butler’s pantry, and doors that open onto a terrace for al fresco dining.

Deeds & Don'ts: Rennovated Properties

Deeds & Don'ts: Rennovated Properties

No matter their style, good architects design for the lives that are to be lived in the space. Put another way, a home is well designed only if it suits the lives of its owners—not the other way around. In keeping with the theme of this issue, here are places and spaces that have been beautifully designed or renovated by talented architects, designers or builders. But don’t take our word for it: With the fall real estate market underway, October is a great time to take advantage of weekends packed with open houses.
