Overview

About the property

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.

The house has central air and heat.

CANCELLATION POLICY: Full refund if cancelled before 60 days in advance of dates booked. If cancelled with less than 60 but over 30 days in advance of dates booked, 50% refund. If cancelled less than 30 days in advance of dates booked, NO refund. (I will try my best to refund you in full or part if I am able to rent out the dates that you originally booked to a another party.) Thanks!

About Deirdre

I am a married mother of two boys, ages 5 and 7. I am a TV writer and a novelist.

Deirdre purchased this house in 2014

Why Deirdre chose North Stamford

We bought this house because we fell in love with it. It's an old farmhouse that has been beautifully updated with lots of light. My family lives in the area and we wanted a vacation home that would be close to them.

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. It's very spacious and the large and sunny playroom is a huge benefit for us with kids.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This home was not only immaculate, well-kept , and loved in every way but was more than your average home away from home. The pictures did not do it justice. It was much better in person ..a rarity these days. We were a large group on a long overdue reunion but there was everything available to accommodate all of her needs... from a great kitchen...dinnerware ..serving pieces cooking utensils ...to comfortable sleeping arrangements with beautiful linens and lots of room!!! everyone was sad to leave but if still available plan to make it a reunion destination as often as we can. The informative instruction book was our Bible and told us everything we needed to know about the property and the surrounding areas.

Great size house for 6+, excellent communication!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay! Deirdre was wonderful about communication. She emailed the information in a timely manner, also reached out to us before we arrived and notified of a branch in the yard, which ended up not affecting us in any way. The were plenty of rooms and lots of space for several of us to stay! We have a son who VERY much enjoyed the play room! It was rainy during our stay, so this helped keep him busy. Great off the kitchen room for my husband to work, large open dining room/living room for all of us to gather. The room sizes were great, except the master which is massive! The number of bathrooms was wonderful! We weren't all trying to fight over the same bathroom. Really great layout and spacing. Would book again if we are staying in the area in the future!!

Charming House

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time the week we spent at Dierdre’s. We had a little issue but she was quick to help resolve it. She was easy to contact and I asked her many questions which she was quick to answer. It is the perfect house for kids... the back yard and playroom were awesome. It came with all the amenities we needed. It is a quick drove into town and the area was so picturesque!

The house was huge and well-equipped. Deirdre was easy to reach and got back to us quickly!

  • 5 of 5

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!!
