The Whelpley-DeForest House c.1795 was originally built by Charles DeForest I. The house remained in the family until 1958, and since then the house has had several owners including the present owner. The current owners have beautifully restored, remodeled and expanded with a bright modern kitchen, renovated master bedroom suite and bathrooms, and a new window-filled family room. Historic details abound with original nine over six windows, fireplaces, beautiful wide plank wood floors, and hand-hewn chestnut beams. ##Lovingly maintained grounds with perennial gardens, stately trees, stone walls, heated pool, and expansive yard. ##Conveniently located, only 8 to 10 minutes away from Metro-North stations in either Wilton or New Canaan. Close to a variety of restaurants, shops, grocery stores, and Wilton’s top-ranked schools. ##Perfect for the modern lifestyle or a weekend retreat from NYC.
