At the end of a quiet country lane sits 8 Marilane, an airy colonial on 1+ acres complete with backyard swimming oasis, lakefront, and beautiful gardens. Custom built in 2001, this home was crafted of 2018-popular materials - hewn beams, hammered tin ceilings, wide board hardwood, marble and stone countertops, moldings, and over-sized windows - all of them elevating this house. There is an impressive chef's kitchen with glass-doored pantry cupboard, enormous island and a wall of windows that look out in multiple directions. Antique wood beams add character. The living room (also open to the area) has a handcrafted river stone fireplace. The first floor is completed by a dining room and complete guest suite. Ascending the front stair to the second level, one encounters, stunningly, the expansive master suite that includes a dressing room with separate windowed, walk-in closets, a master bath with carved marble consoles, a water closet and separate shower and tub. Four other bedrooms are found along the wide and journeying hall. Halfway down the back stairs is another bonus room, bedroom and full bath. The lower level has a playing field sized recreation area and a seventh bed and full bath. Accessed through a wood-paneled mudroom is the four car garage whose vaulted-ceiling and two double-width doors give it a luxe feel. All this is moments from downtown Westport, trains, and less than a mile from the Merritt Parkway. The perfect life.
