WESTPORT, Conn. – Westport Realtor Jillian Klaff believes a beautiful and updated kitchen can be the key to the successful sale of a home. Her listing at 6 Winker Lane in Westport is the perfect example for what listed homes should have among their features.

“Kitchens can be the difference between the sale or a non-sale of a home,’’ Klaff said. “Kitchens are the most important room in the house and the focal point of almost every home.”

The Winker Lane home, listed for $2,995,000, is a stunning 8,400-square foot colonial with six bedrooms, six full baths and two half-baths. The gourmet kitchen features two islands, a breakfast bar, butler’s pantry, top of the line appliances and breakfast room.

Klaff said the home includes many of the features in the latest trends in kitchen design. She said kitchens are trending toward being multi-functional with light, white or open space, a center island, child accessible refrigerator drawers and microwaves, open shelving, brushed chrome, double or convection ovens, and light marble and glass tile backsplashes.

“Kitchens are the heart of the home,’’ Klaff said. “It’s where the family gathers to eat, work, study, craft and socialize.”

Klaff said homebuyers look for new appliances, center islands and eat-in spaces when purchasing a new home. “When updating a home, homeowners should consider purchasing new appliances first,’’ Klaff said. “The general rule is to start with the refrigerator and go from there.”

The home at Winker Lane is a new construction by renowned local builder Andy Frank, who has been building homes in Westport for nearly 30 years. The home sits on 1.18 acres. The finished lower level includes a fireplace, gym, play room, full bath, terraced walk-out, and a potential wine cellar or movie theater. The master suite with French doors to the sitting room includes a fireplace, private balcony, luxurious, over-sized private marble bath and his and hers walk-in closets.

For complete details on the home, visit the listing website or contact Klaff at (203) 858-2095.
