Welcome to this sunny, chic 4BR, 4BA updated country house with skylights galore
** Please note that in the summer months we require a 5-night stay.** Just one hour from New York City, this is a very charming and stylishly updated old house that is perfect for families. It is located in the country area of North Stamford, right on the border of Greenwich. It was built in 1869 (there is a hitching post out front), and then was updated twice recently with a sunroom with woodburning stove, large playroom stocked with toys, and a master suite and bath. It has 3,880 square feet. There are 4 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms, 2 with tubs.
CHECK IN TIME: 3 PM
CHECK OUT TIME: 11 AM
There is a large backyard. At the far end of the yard is a pond and stone patio. In the spring and summer there are frogs in the pond, and the occasional turtle.
The playroom is large, sunny, and stocked with toys that kids are welcome to play with.
Our outdoor swingset / playset accommodates small children - best for children 10 and under. Please no adult use. Thanks.
We leave a binder in the house that is full of detailed info about the house, wireless access, garbage pickup, the area, shopping, activities, restaurants, recreation, etc. We are very easy to contact via text or phone with any questions at all you have during your stay -- no matter how small. Thanks!
The neighborhood is bucolic and rural. There's a horse farm nearby, down a winding road. The forested Mianus River Park, with its lovely hiking trails that run alongside the river, is a 3-minute drive from the house, great for jogging, hiking, mountain-biking or walking the dogs (or kids!). The house has easy access to the Merritt parkway (Route 15) so getting into NYC or to nearby Greenwich, CT is easy. Shopping on trendy Greenwich Ave. (Saks, Tiffany, J. Crew, etc.) is 15-20 minutes away. Stamford train station is about 15-20 minutes from the house, and has many trains running into New York's Grand Central station, a 1-hour train ride away.
Please do NOT put anything other than toilet paper in toilets - no feminine products or baby wipes, etc. or there may be plumbing problems. Thank you.
Please note that beyond 4 people, we charge an additional fee of $5 per guest, per night.
A note re: Air conditioning. The master bedroom and downstairs playroom have central air, and the other bedrooms have window air conditioning units. We use fans in the summer in the other downstairs rooms.

Deirdre purchased this House in 2014
Why Deirdre chose Newfield - Westover - Turn of River
We bought this house because I grew up in the area and my family is close by.
What makes this House unique
We love the character of this home. It has old roots but has been updated beautifully. We also love the huge backyard, tire swing and pond in the backyard. The large and sunny playroom is a huge benefit for us with kids.

Lovely New England home
We have stayed at this terrific home twice and will come again. Very comfortable bedrooms. Amazing kids playroom with hundreds of toys, bikes and fun things for kids.Lovely pond out back...cozy living room and spacious den and combined dining room. I recommend it highly!
The house was huge and well-equipped. Deirdre was easy to reach and got back to us quickly!
It was so cold the time we were there so we couldn’t take advantage of the nice property and bikes and such but we loved the house, lots of sleeping space and gathering spaces. They thought of everything!!
Perfect for a wedding weekend
We live in Central Florida but our daughter got married in Stamford, Connecticut a couple of weeks ago. It was difficult to plan an out of state wedding but finding this house made everything so easy on the weekend of the wedding. This is a big beautiful house, nestled in a beautiful neighborhood. It was so roomy for our family of 6 adults and 2 children and close to the church. Our daughter had a beautiful, homey and roomy place to get ready for her big day.
We had a lot of family coming in for the wedding from out of town and we were able to host them like if it was our own house. Deirdre was wonderful to work with, she made everything so easy for us. Everyone thought the house was perfect.
Great Home! Great Atmosphere!
This is a lovely home! Can't wait to book again!
The bedrooms are cosy and warm, plenty of living space and great location!
Great place for families
Lots of space for the kids and a wonderful play room. The yard was awesome we saw lots of deer and other critters.
Very well-equipped house perfect for family with kids
This home was ideal for traveling with our 6 boys. It's very spacious, has a great back yard and is wonderfully well-stocked in every way. Pack n play, air mattresses, lots of extra bedding and towels, everything you need to do lots of cooking in the kitchen, wonderful play room and garage full of beach gear, bikes, etc. We were grateful to find such a home away from home!
