Hello everyone! I’m writing to you today with a very exciting description of my newest listing: 46 Old Stone Crossing in West Hartford, Connecticut.

Located in the most coveted neighborhood in West Hartford, CT, 46 Old Stone Crossing is a homeowner’s dream come true. As you approach the front entrance of this majestic home, its artistically adorned bluestone pillars and a Palladian-style front door extend a glorious welcome. Entering the home is a true experience: you are greeted by a stunning double foyer with Phillip Jeffries designer wallcovering, unparalleled millwork, and elegantly-appointed lighting pieces that radiate through the entire space. Uniquely designed, the foyer invites you to venture into any of the three striking arched doorways, each leading to different realms of this amazing estate. Which will you explore first?

The left arch of the grand foyer leads you to the formal living room. Two sets of bay windows flood the room with an ethereal natural light that coats both the seating area and grand piano with a soft glow. Opposite the windows rests a gorgeous gas fireplace adorned with an exceptional frame, two dazzling lights, and a framed Samsung TV. Whether it’s casual mornings by the bay window with a cup of coffee and book, or evenings by the fire with business associates, this formal space sets the tone for any occasion.

Exiting the formal living room through its back-most set of French doors transports you into the home’s luxurious private study. This room offers another grand window displaying more of the home’s outstanding views of the Heublein Tower. This window shines as a stunning light accent in contrast to the surrounding black bookshelves that cover the wall from floor to ceiling. The furniture’s light tones glow, adding both space and texture to the room, unveiling its boundless potential. Opposite the bookshelves is yet another grand gas fireplace; its jet-black frame is enhanced by an elegant white molding. This room would make an ideal executive’s office, a study, or simply a private cigar room. Its role is entirely up to you! The home’s natural current carries you into the second grand foyer. A dazzling chandelier steals the show as you glance up and follow the beautiful stairwell with exquisite wainscoting. The chandelier calls you upstairs, yet there’s still so much on the first floor to admire, so you keep walking past and enter the kitchen.

This magnificent home’s kitchen goes beyond any chef’s wildest dreams! Upon entering, your eye is immediately captured by the heart of this beautiful space: imported from Italy, a brilliant Waterfall island of authentic Calacatta Borghini Gold Marble glistens under two elegant Paris lanterns. Surrounding this brilliant centerpiece awaits an unimaginably comprehensive array of the most sophisticated amenities: Wolf, Viking double oven, Sub-Zero refrigerators and food warming drawers, Miele dishwasher & Sub-Zero double beverage coolers. The 6 burner Viking range top is adorned by a custom pewter Francois and Co. Hood, trimmed in brass. Over the Kohler cast iron apron sink and Newport Brass kitchen faucet fixture, a large bay window overlooks the gorgeous stone patio, a private-peaceful backyard, and even a Martha Stewart Inspired Herb Garden to facilitate every chef’s culinary desire! The carefully crafted details of this space contribute to the home’s unique elegance and impeccable attention to detail. 

Adjacent to the kitchen awaits two amazing spaces to explore, each of equal splendor. The first stems directly from the kitchen’s seating area. With a stunning stone fireplace, flat-screen TV, and direct views of the home’s gorgeous outdoor space, the family room is equipped for any occasion. Yet the most notable features of this room lie in its graceful architecture. The coffered ceilings and millwork add a delicate texture and individuality to the space. The second outlet from the kitchen is gracefully connected by a dry bar (essential when hosting any gatherings!). This formal dining room is fit to host the most sophisticated dinner parties of the century. The classic Hurtado dining room table with gleaming gold accents offers the room an elegant ambiance, amplified by the wall’s skillful millwork and stunning crystal chandelier. For any dining occasion, this dining room is the moment.

Beyond the mentioned rooms await a myriad of additional unique elements on the first floor. From a hidden bathroom in the grand foyer to the second entrance’s newly renovated mudroom, the first floor, like the property as a whole, exceeds any homeowner’s expectations.  The second floor of this home offers incomparable luxury. The five out of six bedrooms, each with an en suite bath offer a unique set of amenities. The two rooms are constructed in a Jack and Jill style with a twist! Instead of your conventional shared bathroom, these two rooms are connected by a distinctive arched passageway, adorned with a brilliant chandelier and a powder room with a vanity mirror. Both rooms possess their own full baths, each uniquely styled to fit the respective room. This space is perfect for anyone who appreciates unparalleled style as well as spectacular views.

The other room on the second floor is the home’s stellar guest room. With amber tones and ample natural light from the room’s grand window, this room emits a warm welcome to any visitor. Of course, this space also has a full bath, generous closet space, handsomely detailed armoire, and even a lounge space strategically positioned to fully soak in the exquisite views. With a room like this, your guests will covet their next stay.

Now the master bedroom: is truly the second floor's prized space. The master is designed in three territories: his, her, and together. “His” side offers both a full walk-in closet/dressing room and a lavish bathroom. On the “her” side, there is a restful lounge space with a reading room and window seating overlooking a jaw-dropping view. In addition, the “her” side offers a full powder/dressing room with a vanity space and cabinets that even host a fridge that can be used for your cosmetic care or favorite beverages. Also on the “her” side is a walk-in closet and full bath with a jacuzzi tub overlooking some of the best views in the house; connecting these two separate spaces is the main master bedroom. With one set of windows presenting incomparable views of the Heublein Tower, and another that was custom designed to watch the moon at night; the master bedroom was artfully built to enchant any lucky homeowner. Other outstanding features on the second floor include meticulously crafted millwork, nine-foot ceilings, and provincial stained hardwood floors. This master suite offers all of the privacy and intimacy that you can dream of!

Continuing your upward trajectory through, another beautiful stairwell will lead you to the third floor. Currently designed to encapsulate a podcast studio, art den, and lounge area to casually enjoy some television, this space’s versatility holds vast potential. Whether you’d like to use this space as a sixth bedroom, or a creative outlet for your passions, the possibilities are endless. Some of its fabulous features include built-in counters, a full wall of custom cabinetry, another TV, and two sets of three windows on opposite sides of the room displaying more amazing views.

46 Old Stone Crossing’s lower level adds an entire dimension to this estate. As you enter the lower level, you are greeted by a spacious hallway with a row of hanging Chapman Moravian Stars scattering light throughout the entire space. The first doorway in the hall leads to a full home gym and the next open to the lower level’s full bath. The elegant hallway ends when you encounter the lower level’s assortment of entertainment spaces: a game room, billiard room, 1,500 bottles climate-controlled wine cellar and the theater room. With a poker table, bar, beverage refrigerator, and a patina copper bar sink adorned with Rubrik water-jet mosaic backsplash, this space is designed to host! Not only does 46 Old Stone Crossing possess the most sought-after amenities and intangible elegance, but it also rests in West Hartford, CT, ranked number 1 town overall in the greater Hartford area by Hartford Magazine.
