About Heather Lauver
The Moors bought the house in 2009 and renovated it into a sustainable (solar) retreat with an organic garden, sport court, gym and high efficiency heating/cooling. Compost bin available, which we encourage. The one-hour commute to NY is easy and one always gets a seat.
Why Heather Lauver chose New Canaan
The house has a wonderful floor plan, which can accommodate older persons on the first floor if needed. The walk to town and schools is 1.3 miles with access to all major highways. Horseback riding, kayaking and hikes are plentiful in the area; a car is recommended for this excursions. Mystic Seaport is 2 hours away. The town itself is quaint and walkable with great restaurants. You may see some celebrities such as Paul Simon, Edie Brickel, Harry Connick Jr, or any number of CEOs of companies. Free concerts are offered on the Waveny Park green in the summer. Several beaches are within 15 miles. Winter fun includes sledding, pond skating and holiday caroling on the green.
What makes this House unique
Kitchenette and studio suite above the garage provides space for an additional family or an au pair some privacy (or the teenagers their space). Peach trees on property, free to pick.
