An Elegant 1890s Manor in Greenwich Comes to Market for the First Time in 50 Years Seeking $16M
In Greenwich, a beautiful Federal Colonial Revival manor perched on Byram Harbor just hit the market. Dubbed ‘Bonnie Breeze,’ it’s a momentous listing as the circa-1894 home is available to buy for the first time in 50 years. After a thoughtful restoration in 2019, the coastal residence is asking $15.995 million.
Located in the heart of the Belle Haven Association, the historic property is the essence of timeless elegance. Spanning almost 8,500 interior square feet, the interiors are filled with beautiful wood floors, moldings and archways, and wood-burning fireplaces. The grand eat-in kitchen is soaked in light, while cheery green accent cabinets and a big center island complete the classic feel.
Encompassing a total of six bedrooms and eight bathrooms, the stately house has room for many to come and stay. The primary suite takes up half of the second floor, offering a large dressing room, multiple closets, and an updated bathroom with a deep soaker tub. Rounding out the home’s interior, the lower levels hold a media room, gym, and a cozy wood-paneled library.
Outside, exuding the same energy as an old-money country club, the private spot captures stunning views of the harbor and offers luxuries like a 2,000-square-foot veranda, a tennis court, and a pool. It’s easy to see why one would hang onto it for half a century. Wouldn’t you?
