23 Khakum Wood Rd

Set in the prestigious mid-country Khakum Wood Association, known for its compelling architecture and rich landscaping, and only 6 minutes to downtown Greenwich, Khakum Wood is that rare blend of being close to everything—schools, restaurants, and major routes—yet exceedingly private.

Designed by celebrated architect, Harrie T. Lindeberg, this exquisite Norman French estate displays Lindeberg’s signature elegance and artistry while evoking a masterful, modern style. The result is a seamless harmony that is stunning, deeply welcoming, and timeless. Its wonderfully scaled rooms include a 19′ x 39′ grand living room with chestnut and pine cathedral ceiling and an unusually large knotty pine paneled library. Details such as the lead paned windows, Ludovici tile roof, and splendid period hardware exemplify the architectural merit of this pre-war masterpiece!

An original carved European fireplace graces the great room, which has three french doors leading to the back lawn. The large entrance hall and reception room, bay windowed dining room and library all have fireplaces. A stone floored rathskeller with fireplace on the lower level is perfect for billiards or family gatherings.

Staff quarters are expansive. A garage apartment can be used for staff, guests, private studio, office, or as a gym. A separate wing currently housing staff is flexible in use as well. Nearly six acres of pristine woodlands and sweeping lawns offer an idyllic setting for outdoor exploration, nature walks, and endless delight. A lake for fishing and skating and a spectacular freeform pool contoured to landscape compliment the property.

EXQUISITE PRIVATE PARK SETTING

This stunning storybook property is set in the exquisite woodlands of the most prestigious enclave of mid-country Connecticut, off picturesque Round Hill. Designed by landscape architect Frederick Law Olmstead, creator of Central Park and Queens Park in London, Khakum Wood is reminiscent of Olmstead’s Manhattan centerpiece with a gently rolling landscape, two lakes, and homes perfectly positioned in harmony with the natural surroundings. Khakum Wood is just minutes from downtown Greenwich, schools, the parkway, and highway. Its transportive feeling makes it hard to believe that you are so close to shopping, restaurants, and more.

NORMAN FRENCH-STYLE ESTATE

A Norman French-style estate with a manor-born pedigree, this home was designed by celebrated American architect, Harrie T. Lindeberg, evoking the very essence of elegance and sophistication. Its timeless artistry is vividly on display at every turn throughout this property. Gracious and grand, the home is immersed in light and flowing with impressively scaled rooms, a pine cathedral ceiling, and a unique and unusually large knotty pine paneled library. Details such as lead paned windows, a Ludovici tile roof, and splendid period hardware exemplify the architectural distinction of this rare pre-war masterpiece, and absolute treasure.
