ESTATE SECTION OF ROUND HILL ROAD, GREENWICH CT

Set on the most prestigious country street in the prestigious Town of Greenwich, this compound was originally part of equestrian facilities. Surrounded by fields and bordered by a lake on one side, this 5+ acre property features playing lawns, formal gardens, multiple entertaining terraces, a lake and footbridge leading to it’s own island. Private and peaceful, affording a true country lifestyle.

DESIGN

A fresh translation of the classical Georgian Colonial design, this home is exacting in every detail. The double wide front to back 100’ long entry with double height ceiling runs front to back, opening up on a view of the lake and island. Every room is detailed in its design and finishes, using materials from around the world. The results is a residence that is unparalleled in Greenwich, modern in its sensibility, yet grounded in the principles of classical architecture.

The stately façade, with its soaring columns and classical details, gives way to gallery-like interior spaces that radiate with a modern sensibility and informal luxury. Sunlight floods the first-floor entertaining areas, including the lofty Adirondack Great Room with a reclaimed 400-year-old wood-beam cathedral ceiling and dramatic fireplace, the professionally equipped kitchen that shimmers in stainless and white, and bi-level family room and breakfast room—both with floor-to-ceiling windows that offer panoramic pastoral and lake views.

Situated on 5.7 rolling acres, the property boasts its own lake and island with a private footbridge. The bucolic beauty is enjoyed from multiple entertaining spaces, one of which is a sparkling zero edge pool plus a columned portico that shelters an outdoor dining area, fireplace, and changing room. The grounds also feature impeccable gardens and lawns, a guesthouse finished in the same meticulous detail as the main residence, and garaging for 7 cars.
