New in Greenwich: A Modern Farmhouse Built with Sustainability in Mind Hits the Market

It’s getting green in Greenwich, and we’re not talking about the town’s classic boxwoods. The Fairfield County enclave, long a draw for wealthy or celebrity residents seeking to be close to NYC, added a new home last week to its ever-impressive roster of listings. This one, notable for its embrace of sustainable design elements, asks $10.75 million. With a price tag like that, the modern farmhouse-style residence has been built to last.

So, what makes this 2020 build so special? No solar panels plate the roof, nor any thermal technology utilized for heating and cooling. Rather, the construction consists of reclaimed or otherwise smartly-employed materials requiring little environmental impact for their use. There’s the siding, for starters, a Brazilian Grapa wood that infuses the facade with a rugged, weather-worn character despite the house being only two years old. A zinc roof also shields the interiors from the elements.

Inside, Belgian black granite tops the counters and reclaimed French oak floors lie underfoot. Then, throughout the 8,155 square feet of interior space, an even six bedrooms, six full bathrooms, and six half-bathrooms find ample space. When it comes to amenities, there’s also no shortage. A 500-square-foot gym, living wall, bar, wine cellar, and media and billiards rooms sit on the lower level. And, it wouldn’t be a $10.75 million Connecticut home without a pool. After all, summing is coming.
