To this manor born

Question: If you lived in this stone waterfront estate on Wilson Point in Norwalk, why would you ever leave?

This 12,768-square-foot Georgian Colonial has everything. A home theater – check. A wine cellar – check. A gym – check. Heated infinity-edge, in-ground pool and spa, dock and four-car garage – check, check and check. Plus, there are two-story quarters with a private kitchen for staff or guests. And since Wilson Point is a private, gated association of 80-plus properties, the house also has access to tennis courts, a private beach and club, swim and deep-water docks and a playground.

Somehow, though, these features still don’t begin to tell the story of this 13-year-old baronial manse, with its gables, nine-foot ceilings, seven fireplaces, French doors, wood details from a European castle and Palladian windows overlooking the endless beauty of the Long Island Sound.

There are also seven bedrooms, 10 full baths, two half-baths, a rec room, a library, a loft, a home office, a family room, a formal dining room and a laundry room, plus central air conditioning and radiant heating.

And it’s all contained in a home situated in a city that boasts a well-received Oyster Festival and a surging downtown known as SoNo (for South Norwalk).

The house lists for $11,900,000. But as Ira Gershwin would say, “Who could ask for anything more?”
