Refined Lakeside Retreat
At the end of a long private drive off a meandering country lane, this seven-bedroom manor feels as if it has always been here, nestled amid mature trees on the shores of Converse Lake in the prestigious gated community of Conyers Farm.
Noted designer David Easton undertook a meticulous renovation of the 12,377-square-foot residence, creating interiors that exemplify the sophistication and elegance for which Greenwich is known but that retain a comfortable, relaxing, welcoming ambience.
Chief among the alluring public spaces are a refined formal living room designed for easy day-to-day living and fabulous entertaining and an impressively spacious dining room with a fireplace, wide-plank hardwood floors, walls with an enchanting natural decorative theme, and a bay window overlooking the lake.
A generous gourmet kitchen, a charming breakfast room, and an inviting family room give way to a generous terrace enveloped in greenery.
Among the most delightful spaces is a screened porch ideal for appreciating the delights of the serene natural surroundings.
Nearly every room enjoys a view of the lake.
Both a dramatic stairway and a convenient elevator offer access to the home’s second level.
Here the five distinctive bedroom suites—including a luxurious master suite with a sitting room, two dressing areas, and two baths—are filled with lovely natural light and allow for truly restful repose.
An additional bedroom on the uppermost level benefits from a balcony with an idyllic view of the glorious grounds and the water.
The lower level invites delightful diversion with a home theater, a spacious gym, and a billiards room.
Furthering the options for recreation are a refreshing swimming pool and a Har-Tru tennis court with a viewing pavilion.
The sparkling lake, which includes a dock and a small tranquil island, encourages kayaking, fishing, or simply relishing the peaceful setting.
This estate is a truly rare offering, an ideal getaway designed for consummate country living less than an hour from Manhattan.
