This new home sits high on cul-de-sac near Country School. The southwest-facing backyard is terraced, has stone walls & a pool site. There are 9 foot ceilings, beautiful built-ins & moldings. Green construction includes a closed-loop geo-thermal heating & cooling system, ICYNENE closed-cell insulation and an Energy Star Certification. We estimate that the new owner will only consume 65% of normal energy consumption.
Master suite includes a vestibule, 2 large walk-in closets with built-ins, a sitting room, and a 22 x 16 foot bedroom with tray ceiling. The cooks` kitchen has Wolfe, Asco, & Sub-zero appliances, an oversized island with pot-filler over the stove and room to seat a "baker`s dozen". The stunning cherry library has a coffered ceiling, built-ins & a wet-bar. Also, there are two sets of rear stairs to the kitchen.

57 Welles Lane is an Energy Star certified home using state-of-the-art Geothermal technology to both heat and cool this home. Throughout the year, even with snow on the ground, the ground temperature is a constant 58 degrees farenheight. Specially designed thermal wells on the property transfer this ground heat to the house using quiet, high-efficiency water pumps, circulating the earth's natural heat throughout the house.
In addition, ICYNENE insulation provides more than double the insulating properties of standard fiberglass insulation, reducing the total heating and cooling expense to less than half that of a traditional, oil fired system for a house of this size.
