An English-Style Mansion with a Private Beach Lists in Greenwich
A $25.9 million English-style manse has just hit the market, located directly along Long Island Sound, part of the Field Point Circle community in Greenwich. Called the Pryory, it was built in 1916 by Cross & Cross, the prestigious architecture firm credited with such Manhattan landmarks as Tiffany & Co. on 57th Street and the General Electric Company building in midtown. Despite its posh pedigree and nearly 13,000-square-foot grandeur, the ivy-covered façade has the sweet appeal of a storybook cottage. It opens onto an ornately paneled entry hall featuring a sweeping three-story staircase. There’s also a double living room with two fireplaces, a great room with elaborately patterned ceilings, and, on the 2.4 acres, a private beach and a pool.
With eight bedrooms, six baths, and three half baths, there is plenty of space for hosting guests. Rooms with dark wood paneling creates the perfect setting for cozy gatherings in the winter months, while the bright white kitchen and stone terrace will be hot spots when the temperatures go back up.
This property is listed with Robin Kencel of the Robin Kencel Group at Compass.
