City: West Hartford
Situated on the curve at virtually the highest point of the iconic loop road, 88 Balfour's almost 400 feet of frontage and large paver circular drive showcases the prominence of this home. From the flagstone patio and all rear windows, there are views of downtown Hartford. The circular drive leads to an open bluestone entry portico with oversized double doors. Inside, honed Orchard Stone tile adorns the two-story front entry foyer which leads all the way back to the stunning sunroom, which contains the same stone on the floor but as a rougher flagstone. The brick walls and stone floor in the sunroom truly make it feel like you are outdoors, yet it is fully-conditioned for four-season use. Adjacent to the front entry is the cherry-paneled library with a gas fireplace. Beyond that is the billiard room with a full bath, which could be a perfect guest or au pair suite. The home was designed with entertaining in mind. To the right of the front entry, the living room connects to the ample dining room through a large cased opening, designed to have the flexibility for the dining table to be expanded through both rooms for a royal sized meal. Flooring in the living room and dining room is oak with mahogany inlays, in the large two-story family room is Brazilian cherry and in the kitchen and breakfast area is sealed black Chinese slate. There is fine millwork and built-ins throughout. The sun-filled breakfast area looks out over the rolling yard. The master bath is spectacular.
