Stately, Sophisticated Greenwich Sanctuary
The classic stucco, stone, and timber façade of this stately historic 12,000-square-foot home in Greenwich belies the fresh innovative design, sophisticated style, and up-to-the-minute modern amenities that pervade every light-filled room.
Restored, renovated, and expanded, it now features an updated floor plan with a thoughtful, easy flow that makes it ideal for casual or formal entertaining on any scale.
Beyond the formal entry courtyard and its carefully manicured boxwood parterre, the elegance begins in a limestone-floored reception hall with a fireplace and custom art lighting.
A hall with a barrel-vaulted ceiling leads to a walnut-paneled library, a spacious living room with a fireplace original to the home, and a contemporary dining room.
The stunning gourmet kitchen underwent an impeccable renovation in 2014 that provided a soaring ceiling, two center islands with honed granite countertops, Waterworks wall tiling, and top-tier appliances and appointments.
The kitchen flows effortlessly to the breakfast room, a wet bar, and a warm, welcoming knotty-pine-paneled family room with a fireplace and a half bath.
From the foyer, a magnificent sweeping staircase rises beside a clerestory window to the private quarters.
Chief among them is a master suite featuring a sitting room and study with a warming fireplace, generous his and her dressing rooms, and his and her marble baths with heated floors, steam showers, and Waterworks fixtures.
Four additional bedroom suites accommodate guests in comfort and style. An inviting game room is hidden on the third floor. Opening to acres of rolling lawn and one of several stone terraces, the walk-out lower level features a media room with a wet bar, a pool cabana with a bath, an expertly outfitted wine cellar, a gym—or additional bedroom—with a full bath, a heated three-car garage, and a mudroom.
Facing south for maximum sunlight, the grounds beckon with an expansive multilevel entertaining terrace, enchanting gardens, and an alluring swimming pool and spa.
Further afield but within the verdant panoramic view is a sparkling spring-fed lake with a fountain, yet another hallmark of a refined estate with timeless appeal—all just minutes from downtown Greenwich.
