Even beautiful photos can’t adequately convey the ‘wow factor’ of this exceptional vintage home in the South Wilton Meadow Road neighborhood. Built in 1931 by Frederick S. Stone with collaboration from Fraser Peters, it even has its own name:  “Dhurrie House.”

The 5-bedroom, 5.5-bath home includes an updated kitchen and baths. The bell tower and Ludowici clay tile roof makes the exterior remarkable and completely unique.

Masterful wood millwork abounds throughout the home. The two-story entrance hall with chestnut beams and a wonderful wrought iron staircase leads to a chestnut-paneled living room with 10-plus ft. ceilings and a 19th-century mantel over the large fireplace. The family room offers gorgeous views to the $350,000 Glen Gate pool and grounds.

The home’s large, elegant formal dining room with fireplace is matched by an updated, light-filled kitchen with Wood-Mode cabinets, and Sub Zero and Electrolux appliances.

The master suite also has a fireplace and wow-factor with a fabulous adjoining sunroom.

In all, the home has had over $700,000 in improvements. Originally priced at $2.15 million, only last month the price on 2 East Meadow Rd. was reduced to $1,899,000.

The home is represented by Julie Carney, of William Raveis. She can be reached via email or by cell at 203.451.9966.
