Greenwich’s Storied Hemlock Castle Just Sold in an All-Cash $10M+ Deal
After being on and off the market for years, Greenwich’s Hemlock Castle has officially sold in an all-cash deal after roughly four months on the market. It listed with Stephanie Bo Li of Douglas Elliman in April for $11.8 million, and while some have said the luxury market is cooling off, the $10.39 million all-cash deal made here may shows the demand is still strong. Perhaps there’s no better time than the present to list a luxury Connecticut property. After all, winter will be here before we know it.
The circa-1902 home is filled with rich character, but also sports history. Harry H. Frazee, a famous former owner of the Boston Red Sox who held it at the time Babe Ruth was traded to the Yankees, was also a former owner of Hemlock Castle.
As one can presume by its name, the 20,000+ square foot residence holds regal grandeur. On top of over four acres, the commanding stone facade gives way to elegant yet stately interiors. Large windows usher light into almost every area, brightening even the wood-paneled office and intricate fireplace details.
It’s no surprise that a home of this size holds ample private spaces on top of the common rooms, boasting a staggering 14 bedrooms and 17 bathrooms, as well as an additional carriage house and staff quarters. Let’s hope the new owners are up for entertaining. To round out the home’s interior, a 10,000-bottle wine cellar worthy of a European chateau sits in the home’s lowest level.
Tying up its time on the market smoothly, Bo Li was not only the one to finally reel in a sale for this enchanting property but also brought the buyer.
