In Greenwich, a stately home is waiting on the market for a buyer who values both its architecture and history. Designed by Mott B. Schmidt, a high-society architect favored by people with lasts names like Astor and Vanderbilt, they don’t make them like this anymore.

The for-sale manse, listed for $9.5 million, was constructed in 1948 on 11 acres along Round Hill Road. The brick façade, classically Georgian in style, opens onto an entry hall with a dramatic, curved, two-story open staircase. The interiors offer five bedrooms, including a newly renovated main suite with a pretty marble bathroom, featuring a slipper tub.

And on the grounds, buyers aren’t left wanting either. A pool, a renovated guest cottage, and an expansive greenhouse create a lavish Greenwich home base just 45 minutes from Manhattan. Amanda J. Miller of Houlihan Lawrence has the listing.
