Thinking about the suburbs? This modern colonial in Stamford may be just the thing to make up your mind

How much total do you plan to tip the building staff this year?

North Stamford is the most leafy and picturesque, not to mention the most affluent, section of Connecticut's third largest city. And this four-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath colonial-style house built in 1998 has the privacy for which the neighborhood's properties are known. It stands on a level acre of land, with a long driveway that makes it feel more regal.

And at $1.05 million, the house—represented by William Raveis—is less than the average price of a Brooklyn apartment (according to Douglas Elliman's most recent market report).

It's got a two-story foyer, and a granite-countered eat-in-kitchen, which opens to a family room with a fireplace.

The first floor has a living/dining room, office (separated by French doors), and a mud room/laundry room; the second floor has a recreation room (situated over a three-car garage), a master suite with a huge walk-in closet, and three additional bedrooms. Seriously, just look at that closet!

And in case you're wondering about the commute to to Manhattan, the Stamford Transportation Center in downtown Stamford is a major hub, and Metro-North Railroad trains get to Grand Central Terminal within 48 to 70 minutes. The house itseld is just about a minute's drive from the Merritt Parkway.
