A Normandy-Style Estate Once Owned by a Kiss Bandmember Lists for $1.8M
There’s a storybook charm to a new Greenwich listing, a Normandy-style estate with an arched wooden bridge spanning a rock-lined brook and a pond with a waterfall. The circa-1968 home also has an impressively espaliered façade with shingled and gabled rooftops and, in back, a wraparound terrace overlooking a professional-grade bocce court. And as required by every child’s fable, there’s a quaint, 650-square-foot cottage.
So it was surprising to learn the traditional home was owned, during the 1970s, by Peter Criss of the rock band Kiss. If you, too, like to party like a rock star, the estate offers plenty of places for fun, including a wood-paneled, English-pub-style bar and a gorgeous dining room with a fireplace. William Tuck Keating of Douglas Elliman Real Estate lists the property for $1,875,000.
