http://www.PeterThalheim.Raveis.com - Welcome to 1 Little Cove Place, set in the cul de sac neighborhood of lower Keofferam Road. Here, approximately 25 properties enjoy rights of access to “Little Beach” on Greenwich Cove. This idyllic, sandy beach offers views of Manhattan and a place to sink your toes in the sun warmed sand.
This five bedroom, four and one half bathroom homes sits on 16,800 sq. ft. of land. At over 5,300 sq. ft., it was built at one cohesive design and has not been added onto, so the layout flows from one area of the home to the other. The rear stairs allows for a variety of uses.
The formal living room, entry hall and dining room, lend themselves to formal entertaining. The living room is on the sunny southeastern corner of the home and sits next to the home office with built-in shelving for your books and pictures.
In keeping with a contemporary living, the island, kitchen/family room has an eat-in area and adjoining screened porch. The island kitchen will allow your chef to prepare great meals with the assistance of up-to-date stainless appliances and granite countertops.
The family room has a sunny southwestern exposure for great light year round. The family room also opens up to the outside deck on the private back yard, which adjoins the screened porch off of the eat-in area. Here one can enjoy the solitude of a quiet neighborhood. And in the summer and fall you may enjoy the distant sounds of people enjoying themselves at Tod’s Point or moored on their yachts in Greenwich Cove. This is all part of the rhythm of life on lower Keofferam Road. Don’t forget that every time you come down Keofferam Road, you will have to look at the waters of Greenwich Cove at the end of the street. High tide or low tide. Windy or calm.
To simplify your daily routine, an ample mudroom, laundry, full bath and storage room connects the kitchen space to the garage and mud room entrance. Everything is accessible and where it should be. A rear staircase leads to the game room above the garage.
The generously sized dining room is complemented by a large butler’s pantry, complete with dishwasher, sink and refrigerator.
Once we ascend the main stairway to the second level we have four choices:
- the three bedroom wing,
- the master bedroom suite,
- the fifth bedroom and play room beyond, or
- stairs to the vaulted ceiling playroom/office on the third level.
The fifth bedroom on the second level boasts its own en suite bathroom and two closets. It is far enough away from the other four bedrooms for privacy and close enough to the rear stairs for discreet access. The game room, with vaulted ceilings and three cavernous closets, can fulfill whatever need you assign it. This game room also connects to the first level off the laundry room.
The master bedroom suite boasts two generous walk-in closets to the right. The bedroom, itself, enjoys its own fireplace and outdoor porch to listen to the sounds of Greenwich Cove and Tod’s Point. Finally, there is a master bathroom with separate bubble tub, separate shower, two sinks and a water closet, finished in a neutral stone.
Moving down the hallway, the three bedrooms are sited on the southern end of the house for more light. At present they share a hall bath, but the original design of the home allowed for the flexibility of turning the large walk-in closet into a jack and jill bathroom between bedrooms one and two, as you see fit.
And then we can opt to go to the third level. This vaulted space could be used for another bathroom or a sixth bedroom. Or perhaps it is used as an art studio?
Finally we come to the widow’s walk, which offers a view of the water that surrounds this lower Keofferam neighborhood on three sides. This water frontage is a great place to explore and look for treasure when the tide goes out.
It is this proximity to the water and the cul de sac streets that offers advantages to young and old. There is only local traffic and the sidewalk and the beach are venues for relaxation and play. Similar to other neighborhoods on this side of Sound Beach Avenue, one can walk almost to the Elementary School without using Sound Beach Avenue. One Little Cove allows you to enjoy a myriad of interlocked streets, accessed through nature conservancy land or paper streets, with constant glimpses of the waters of Greenwich Cove as you walk about.
Come and enjoy this elegant home at 1 Little Cove Place in a relaxing beach neighborhood and bring your flip flops. One Little Cove Place for your peace of mind. Visit us today and enjoy the best Old Greenwich has to offer.
