Connecticut coast home to lavish estates
Connecticut coast home to lavish estates Southwestern Connecticut boasts some of the most wealthy towns in the country. As a result, places such as Greenwich, Westport and Fairfield are home to a collection of impressive homes, and according to the Westport News, one house in particular that stands out.
The 11-room home was built over 80 years ago, and sits on 1.2 acres of land, far removed from the street. It features a great deal of luxurious amenities, including a cavernous living room that maintains its warmth with a fireplace and wooden bookshelves.
Perhaps the most striking room in the house, however, is the kitchen. The news source reports that this portion of the home includes glass front cabinets and granite marble counter tops that complement its splendid hardwood flooring.
Those who wish to emulate the look and feel of such a house can easily do so with wood flooring. The material can add warmth to the room and at the same time is an economically smart choice. According to the National Wood Flooring Association, since wood flooring is less susceptible to becoming worn out over time, it maintains its value longer than other materials.
