Old Greenwich is the oldest of the seven hamlets that make up Greenwich, Ct. It was founded in 1640 by Jeffrey Ferris, who purchased land from the Siwanoy Indians in exchange for 25 coats. One of the most distinctive features of Old Greenwich is Tod’s Point, now a 170 acre park with beach fronts, a town sailing club, walking paths and natural preserve.
Originally, Tod’s Point was the 147 acre private estate of J. Kennedy Tod, a gentleman who made his fortune investing in railroads. Tod moved to what was then called Sound Beach in 1882, with his bride and for many years was the only daily commuter to New York City. When Tod bought his waterfront land in 1889, waterfront property was not something that anyone wanted. The perception was that water property was difficult to access and thus, had limited value.
With water on three sides and a private dock leading to LI Sound this house has open floor plan for easy coastal living. Set in a cove in Old Greenwich’s private water community, Shorelands, sits this contemporary style two story home. Almost every room has waterviews which can be enjoyed from the many window walls that bring the outdoors in, and drench the home in sunlight and mesmerizing marine life. First floor has living/dining room with fireplace & two exposures to water, kitchen with sitting area leading to terrace overlooking the water, master suite overlooking pond/stream, library & guest room. Second floor has 60′ family room with tower feature, master suite, guest bedroom, & waterfront balcony. Close to Greenwich Point, town, and train.

Located less than 40 miles from New York City, and just across the State line from New York, Greenwich, Connecticut is one of the nation’s most dynamic communities and luxury real estate markets.
With approximately 62,000 residents, Greenwich represents the 10th largest municipality in Connecticut, and largest of Connecticut’s famed “Gold Coast” towns.
Founded in 1640, Greenwich’s pre-colonial past is the stuff of fascinating lure of settlers, farmland. By the mid-1800s, Greenwich saw a boon in its transportation economy as the rail system brought commerce, industry and new residents to town.
The thriving town captivated New York City dwellers’ attention. They came to Greenwich for summers at the seashore, or for full-time residency – the City’s affluent in search of a classic Americana lifestyle, different than the hustle-and-bustle of Manhattan. The names of prominent, influential families are evident around Greenwich today – Gimbel, Converse, Havemeyer, and Rockefeller, to name but a few.
Today, Greenwich’s community is made up of generations of families who put down roots here long ago, with a healthy arrival of newcomers – whether from New York, across the country, or other continents. The international influence – part of Greenwich’s tradition – enriches its thriving commerce, fine arts, literary, and culinary scenes.
Celebrities and some of the most accomplished professionals in medicine, finance, art, media, publishing, sports, philanthropy, and other fields have chosen Greenwich as their home.
Luxury estate buyers will find fellow Greenwich residents to be welcoming, culturally diverse, and discreet. Private associations – many with sought-after amenities and Clubs – provide the assurance of security and the perk of community. Property taxes in Greenwich are measurably lower than other exclusive Connecticut and New York towns.
The real estate options are as unique as each investor – from the dramatic formality of Greenwich’s famed Great Estates, Georgian colonials, Tudors and European cheateaus, to the sleek simplicity of Mid-Century Modern architecture and the casual-but-decadent resort living afforded by magnificent waterfront residences, iconic “New England coastal.” Things they have in common are exquisite design, expert craftsmanship, high-tech engineering, coveted amenities, and idyllic settings.
Greenwich is made up of distinctive neighborhoods, hamlets and enclaves. For luxury-market homes and estates, investors might consider the vast, grand mansions or equestrian estates of backcountry, a Conyer’s Farm estate, or perhaps a posh setting near the bustling downtown district and the world-renowned Greenwich Avenue. “The Ave” is known for its fine restaurants and shopping, with luxury retailers and brands like Saks Fifth Avenue, Baccarat, Brooks Brothers, Tiffany & Co., Hermès, and more.
For magnificent coastal properties, associations like Field Point Circle, beautiful Belle Haven, Indian Harbor, Mead Point, Milbrook or Willowmere provide “a front-row seat” to Greenwich.
