THINGS THE SELLERS LOVE MOST ABOUT LIVING IN 165 CONANT ROAD

  • Family movie nights –  also, great for when kids have sleepovers – kids pile up there and watch movies and love it.  The TV area in the downstairs living room area is nice because it actually serves as a “cozy” TV den when that is what everyone is interested in – especially in the winter, we put the fireplace on. For the music fans, high-end amps and speakers convey with the house. And two huge custom movie screens (one in main living area and one in the master bedroom) controlled electronically
  • It is actually really nice to be able to watch a movie or play music at night – the kids are shielded from the noise when that door of the lower bedroom wing is shut. Also, it is great to have a private space on a different floor, as the kids will get up earlier on weekends. There is also an intercom system. The kids also like having their “own space” – it is great when they have friends over, as we don’t have elementary and middle school kids running through the master space.  Also, the way the bedrooms are laid out, no one gets woken up when someone comes home late.
  • How fantastic storms and full moons are – really beautiful.  We could see the last eclipse in plain sight from the stairs leading to the master BR.
  • The space in the living room is also great for kids.  Our daughter sets up her gymnastics equipment when she has teammates over.  Son will play hockey, football and basketball with friends (Nerf of course). Kids are where we can see them and love the big space.  If kids are playing outside, we can always see them – huge benefit of the back windows.
  • House flow is amazing for entertaining.  We have had parties where people spill from the pool table & bar upstairs, down the stairs, into the dining room/LR/kitchen.  The open stairwells really bring the party together while people are still spread out.
  • We “live” in the kitchen and the corner of the LR with the TV – and the DR, when we eat dinner in there.  The way that the house is laid out with bathrooms and bedrooms – there is plenty of space and privacy for everyone.  And the big space in the middle – very practical for kids, adds to flow when entertaining, and the back windows provide a really beautiful backdrop every day – whether it’s the trees and the sun shining in, a snowstorm, or a full moon at night.  An extra element of beauty in the house with an indoor/outdoor living feel that most people don’t really think about.
