This magnificent sprawling Greenwich brick and limestone Georgian manor, circa 2006, presides over nearly four and a half pastoral level acres. Designed by award-winning architects, this 11,500-square- foot home features museum quality details that are evident in the hand-cast plaster moldings and millwork, curved African mahogany front door, high ceilings, and grand and gracious two-story foyer with intricate scrolled wrought iron staircase and mahogany rail with wide Brazilian walnut flooring.
This custom home is reminiscent of the great American homes built in the early 1900s. Set back from the road and approached through an allée of majestic trees, the fifteen grand rooms offer a gracious place for family living and gala entertaining.
Antique fireplaces add radiance in the stately living room and formal dining room. Modern day luxury is evident in the sensational gourmet kitchen with spacious informal dining area, outfitted butler’s pantry and lovely family room with soaring 15-foot ceilings. There are seven en-suite bedrooms, including the stately master with fireplace, tray ceiling, his/her baths and closets and a balcony overlooking the manicured property. Bonuses include a paneled billiard room with hand-crafted oak wet bar and humidor, an antique-floored wine cellar for fifteen hundred bottles, cherry paneled theater, gym, sauna, and four-car garage. The outdoors features a large stone terrace, private setting for the in-ground heated pool and level lawns perfect for play.
