CHESHIRE — A two-story 3,903-square-foot house at 40 Wolf Hill Court has a lot of room — yet retains a cozy-feel.

Lauren Seigel, of the Seigel Realty Group, is one of the property’s listing agents.

“It’s a great house, with a really flexible floor plan,” she said.

Seigel said the house, which boasts four bedrooms and four baths and is currently listed for $499,900, would be ideal for multi-generational families.

“There’s a second-floor area that does have appliances and a bedroom and bathroom,” she said. It could easily serve as an in-law apartment or be inhabited by a college-aged family member “who wants to feel like they have their own apartment.”

 A first-floor office can be recreated as another bedroom.

The home’s open layout evokes the feel of a chalet in Vermont, including a fireplace and chimney that extends from floor to ceiling, Seigel said.

“Because you walk in and the heart of the house is a fireplace, it almost feels like a little mini resort,” she said.

The home also features a staircase that wraps around the fireplace. The property itself includes an inground pool and a large yard. A master bedroom on the first floor is directly connected to a sunroom, which leads out to the pool.

“It would be really ideal for a hot tub situation,” Seigel said. The basement, which doesn’t go directly into the house, could be a recreation room — or it could be made into rehearsal space for individuals who play a musical instrument either alone or with a group.
