Video of 70 Davis Rd | Storrs-Mansfield, Connecticut real estate & homes - Serenity surrounds this 3340 square foot contemporary ranch less than 5 minutes from UConn, Mansfield Community Center, the new Storrs Center, Mansfield Middle School and EO Smith High School. 

Beautifully landscaped, private set back lot on 6.67 acres of nature. Paved driveway, home completely updated with newer well pump, furnace, hot water heater, central air, whole house fan, wired for music in most rooms as well as outside on the deck makes entertaining easy. Cherry cabinets throughout house. Wood stove makes the huge finished basement with hardwood floors nice and cozy. Roof (30 year architectural shingles) is only 12 years old.

Top of the line Wolf stainless steel cooktop on oversized island in the large kitchen, which seats 8 people. All rooms in the home are oversized. 3+ bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, plus an additional 600 square foot finished basement. All in all the home features 3000 square feet of basement space, including an additional garage under for storing lawn equipment. Add that to the 3 car attached garage, separate laundry room, walk-in pantry, walk-in foyer closet and california closet systems in the mudroom, master bedroom and one other bedroom, you will not find storage a problem in this home! Flooring is mostly slate, hardwood, and tile (carpet in the master bedroom only).

Master bathroom is a two rooms and includes an oversized shower with two full shower heads and spa jets. A beautiful hot tub awaits you after work outside near one of the back decks. With so few artificial lights in the area, the night sky is incredible.

The serenity of 360 degree view of the woods from the two decks, the heated sunroom or the stamped concrete patio off the back of the home is just spectacular.

A gently sloping backyard provides hours of fun for little ones as it makes a perfect sledding hill in the winter! The home has a leased solar PV system generating, in some months, almost 50% of our electricity needs. Based on our current usage, we calculated that over a 15 year period, we would have saved $12K on our electricity bills, had we stayed in the home.

Storrs Mansfield is a wonderful community to raise a family. We were fortunate to live so close to the Middle School and the High School. Our kids were always the last to be picked up and one of the first to get off the bus at the end of the day - and they could pick the bus up right from the end of our driveway.

Just a short walk brings you to wonderful hiking trails and swimming at Bicentennial Pond, including a summer day camp that is held there. We really couldn't have picked a better location in town!

Mature landscaping attracts a plethora of beautiful birds in the summer. We have loved living here and hope you will appreciate the peaceful surroundings as much as we have!
