Elegance Abounds at an English Country-Style Manor in Greenwich Asking $10.5M
The Fairfield County town of Greenwich is no stranger to architectural gems, from historic beauties like the esteemed Hemlock Castle to award-winning contemporary homes. Fitting more into the first category in terms of design, a custom English-style manor has made its way to the ultra-luxury market. Listed for $10.495 million and perched right above Horseneck Brook, the manor is filled with elegance and sophistication.
The 12,500-square-foot residence sits on four acres at the end of a cul-de-sac, ensuring peace and privacy. A stone façade greets you with a warm grandeur that continues inside thanks to the double-height limestone foyer. Just beyond, the sun-filled formal living room awaits with 30-foot ceilings, a tall wall of windows, and a massive fireplace (one of six in the home). With ornate details and antique wide-plank floors shining throughout the interiors, it’s hard to believe the manse was only built in 2001.
The main floor is definitely where the magic happens, or more specifically, where the entertaining happens. It has a great flow, from the white oak kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances to the large dining room. For moments of quiet relaxation or focus, a secluded library dressed in a moody olive color sits just off the wet bar. French doors open to a relaxing outdoor deck area with a kitchen area, just in time for the warmer weather to come.
One can access the upstairs via the sweeping main staircase with substantial woodwork or the elevator. The home has a total of six bedrooms, seven full bathrooms, and three half bathrooms, with the primary suite presenting the most lavish option. It’s a dreamy escape with 14-foot ceilings, a personal balcony and fireplace, dual walk-in closets, and a marble bathroom.
A prime example of the stunning properties sprinkled throughout Greenwich, this home has a lot to offer and sits less than an hour from NYC. Leslie McElwreath of Sotheby’s International Realty holds the listing.
