WESTON — The owners of the gray colonial house at 9 Little Fox Lane, in Lower Weston, have appreciated the beauty of their natural surroundings in every season, but never more than this time of year when summer leaves of green transform into fall foliage ablaze in various shades of red, orange and yellow.
They have also appreciated the convenience of their home’s location, only two minutes from the public library, town offices and award-winning public schools in Weston center and about 10 minutes from neighboring Westport. Yet they experience “the peaceful feel of being far away in the country somewhere surrounded by majestic trees and dappled greenery everywhere … There is much beauty in every season of the year.”
This property of just over two acres is adorned in attractive professional landscaping, including garden paths, specimen trees, manicured shrubbery, stone walls and English gardens.
“We did extensive stone work and landscaping over the years,” one owner said. The gardens are very well cared for and some have suggested to the owners that those gardens are magazine publication-worthy. “Even the shed is enchanting,” they said.
The visual beauty of the property, which is visible from every window in every part of the house, is enhanced by the serenade from songbirds.
The owners have the added benefit of proximity to the Lucius Pond Ordway Devil’s Den Nature Preserve and its miles of hiking trails. At 1,756 acres, it is the Nature Conservancy’s largest preserve in Connecticut. Sadly, Devil’s Den remains closed for the time being but when it re-opens it will provide this home’s next family with untold hours of hiking, bird watching, and nature appreciation. This 10-room house is also within walking distance of the municipal Bisceglie Park.
The house was built in 1961 and has been meticulously maintained over the years.
“We have had, by and large, the same service providers over 25 years (for fuel delivery, landscaping, tree maintenance and snow plowing),” one owner said.
