A Reimagined 18th-Century “Grand Dame” in Glamorous Greenwich Lists for $6.6M

In most homes, the kitchen is where everything happens, from morning coffee to afterschool homework, and from cocktail parties to low-key family hangs. So much more than a room, the kitchen is the big, beating heart of a home, which means the space needs to work and play hard.

For indoor/outdoor foodies, a remodeled historic Greenwich property seeking $6.595 million is equipped with two kitchens, both of which offer fireside dining. The current owners revamped it, merging historic and modern elements in the best way.

Like a real-life doll house, the circa-1710 main house exudes charm on the outside but is full of modern delights inside. The kitchen and adjoining dining and living spaces feature the original fireplace, wide floorboards, and rustic beams. But, the appliances are the best technology has to offer, from brands like Viking, Traulsen, Sub-Zero and Fisher & Paykel. There’s also a well-appointed butler’s pantry with a wet bar and wine refrigerator. Outside and poolside–there’s a handsome stone fireplace and a deluxe grill, with a gardened dining terrace nearby.

Known as the Mills Fitch House, the 8,000-square-foot residence is characterized as a “Napoleon III-style grande dame” per the listing. It offers six bedrooms, including a posh primary suite with a fireplace and a marble bathroom with a soaking tub. Leslie McElwreath of Sotheby’s International Realty holds the listing.
