A Fairytale English Manor in Greenwich Asks $15.9M

If there was ever a home that looked identical to an antique dollhouse or period drama movie set, it’s this enchanting Greenwich abode. Dubbed Fairholme Estate, the circa-1891 residence is nothing short of a fairytale with quaint English style, impeccable gardens, and a huge wraparound porch. Once asking $18.75 million, the price to step into this storybook life is now $15.9 million.

Pulling up to the circle drive, the home’s size and architecture make a grand first impression. The seven-bedroom main home and four-bedroom cottage make up a total of 18,215-square-feet. They are being sold together or separately, so buyers looking for a bit smaller footprint can snag the larger home for $12.35 million, and then the “coachman’s cottage” will be available for $3.55 million.

Both offer dignified spaces and original details around every corner. From the ornate wooden staircase to the glass-clad sunroom, the main home harkens to an era of balls and high tea. In the backyard, a swirling pattern of boxwoods surrounds walkways, creating a regal experience that’s perfect for garden parties.

Of course, the massive game room, beautiful pool and cabana, and updated appliances make this 19th-century home primed for luxurious modern living. The interiors are even designed by the keen eye of Alexa Hampton to make the estate that much more alluring.
