Tour a Custom Backcountry Greenwich Estate Asking $17.5M

Greenwich, Connecticut’s proximity to Manhattan and tranquil atmosphere has long attracted famous figures. Its luxurious estates have been home to celebrity residents like Mel Gibson, Regis Philbin, Tommy Hilfiger, and more. Nestled in the town’s bucolic backcountry, this four-acre estate exudes star power with a mix of Pacific Palisades, East Hampton, and Greenwich vibes. Asking $17.5 million, could this stately home draw in another celebrity buyer?

The 11,675-square-foot home was custom-created over three years by Christian Rae Studios and LoParco Associates, with the owner stepping into the role of designer. From sketching ideas to sourcing materials. Drawing inspiration from his travels to Asia, Europe, and other regions, the spaces nod to styles from around the world. The home’s black and shiny front doors echo those of elegant London townhouses, while the family room’s 26-foot ceilings nod to the St. Regis resort in Puerto Rico.

Once through the gates and up the driveway, visitors are welcomed inside by the dramatic foyer with dual staircases. Featuring custom quarried marble and specialty-designed chandeliers, the home has a modern, streamlined feel along with classic components. It boasts ample spaces for entertaining, as well as private spots for relaxation, including six bedrooms and nine bathrooms.

Sitting at 543 Stanwich Road, this meticulously designed home is perfectly located for a commuter seeking solace when at home. Brian Milton of Compass holds the listing.
