This striking Shingle home, designed to reflect historic Nichols charm, is a treasure of modern and timeless New England architecture where an acre of parklike grounds frame weathered wood, stone, and punctuating apple-hued entry. Inside, 4,300 square feet of open living is beautifully decked with inlaid hardwoods, airy transitions, and refined millwork each leading to the home's heart where an atrium-like kitchen cares for daily routines using crisp soft-close cabinetry, granite countertops, farmhouse sink, and wrap-around island. Here, serve treats to those finishing homework, and delight overnight guests with breakfast near the view-filled wall of windows. Formal and casual gathering spaces include a step-down living room with fireplace, and walk-out basement, where ping-pong challenges are won before rounds of late night movies. Outside, meadow-like grounds are perfect for parties lined by shade-trees, gardens, and stone-lined paths. Host al fresco dinners on the partially covered deck, catch sunset fireflies, or sit back with friends over wine by the fire. When time for rest, 4 bedrooms and 2.5 baths soothe, including a primary suite with sitting area and access to the terrace. Fall in love w/ the Nichols part of Trumbull. Home to the Bunny Fountain, 5 Pennies Park, Ball Fields, Nichols Green & Farmers Market! Convenient location, close prox. to the Merritt Pkwy & Route 8.
