Nestled in the heart of mid-country, this extraordinary Greenwich property occupies a rare 5.11-acre estate in the exclusive Khakum Wood Association.
The grand 12,386-square-foot manor here was built in 1929 and in 2004 was restored, expanded, and renovated to the highest standards in the hands of Hall & Lane Architects and Xhema Industries, recognized as one of the top builders of luxury homes in the United States.
Improvements and updates include all-new wiring and a Crestron smart house system.
David Easton applied his renowned attention to detail and kept the modern lifestyle in mind when he designed the luxurious yet livable interiors of the eight-bedroom residence. Their classical flair honors the area’s history and the timeless elegance of the Old World — many spaces feature elegant European stone fireplace mantels, classically inspired light fixtures, and French plaster walls — yet each of the four levels has been fully appointed with every desirable modern amenity.
A serene swimming pool and spa, a new poolhouse, a whimsical tree house, and a tennis court beckon from the outdoors.
The pièce de resistance, however, is the stunningly original landscape enveloping the home, meticulously designed by the revered Madison Cox. Expanses of manicured verdant lawn are ringed by profusely flowering formal gardens and majestic allées of linden trees and punctuated by walking paths, a fountain, terraces, and a pergola.
The result is a truly irreplaceable, exquisitely tasteful retreat.
