Picturesque 1.5+ acre estate setting affords in-town convenience with backcountry privacy Commanding over one-and-one-half hilltop acres just minutes from town, this magnificent stone and shingle residence, bordered by an enchanting brook, was custom designed and built with superb quality and craftsmanship for the current owner. Offering exceptional luxury and privacy on one of the most beautiful in-town streets, the stunning architectural style of its gracious façade is complemented by a 9,800+SF state-of-the-art interior resplendent with European-inspired appointments, handcrafted mantels, paneled wainscoting, coffered ceilings, herringbone pattern oak floors, intricately detailed millwork and ceiling medallions. There are five marble or stone fireplaces, formal and informal powder rooms, five en suite bedrooms, two laundries and an extensive garden level encompassing spectacular entertainment areas including recreation and media rooms, a wine cellar and elegant tasting room. The Location Only 45+ minutes from Manhattan, Greenwich is considered one of the nation’s most prestigious residential areas. The cosmopolitan community is renowned for excellent public/private schools, outstanding library, new state-of-the-art hospital, beautiful parks, Long Island Sound beaches, upscale shops and fine restaurants. The Property A long Belgian block-lined drive approaches a formal front courtyard overlooking the rushing streams of Brother’s Brook. The high, very private 1.54 acre setting is accentuated by beautiful landscaping, extensive native fieldstone walls, perennial gardens and a backdrop of dramatic rock outcropping. The Residence First Floor: A grand, double-height paneled reception hall with a clerestory window, stairways to upper/lower levels and lovely guest powder room opens to the principal rooms, all with gracious 10+ foot ceilings. For formal entertaining, there is an elegant living room with a marble fireplace and a banquet size, coffered-ceiling dining room, both infused with natural light from an expanse of transomed windows. Handsome, richly crafted, mahogany library with cherry-flooring includes French doors to a charming, hexagonal shape covered terrace. The fabulous coffered-ceiling family room with stone fireplace is pre-wired for media capabilities. Centered between the living room, library and family room is a sophisticated gallery to accommodate entertaining. Highlighted by a pair of distinctive windows, custom millwork, paneling and cabinetry, it includes a marble-appointed wet bar with wine cooler. A delightful morning room with bay alcove and planning desk accesses the outdoors. Sensational, granite-appointed gourmet kitchen with large center-island is superbly equipped with Wolf 6-burner range and double ovens, two Asko dishwashers and SubZero refrigerator. French doors in the family breakfast room lead to a terrace and the secluded rear yard. Off the kitchen, there are stairs to upper/lower levels, a customized mudroom with built-ins crafted with beadboard and floor-to-ceiling paneling, a service entry, family powder room, laundry and three-car heated garage. Second Floor: Broad 5’ corridors with raised paneling connect the family quarters. Luxurious comfort is afforded in the sublime master wing comprising a sitting room with wet bar, hexagonal bedroom chamber with tray ceiling, cove lighting and marble fireplace, two custom fitted walk-in closets and exquisite, mosaic-inlaid honed marble bath with barrel-vaulted ceiling, Palladian window, steam shower, whirlpool tub, separate his/her vanities and water closets, one with a bidet. Four additional family bedrooms, two with double-height ceilings, include beautifully appointed en suite baths and walk-in closets. One suite with a beamed-ceiling and built-ins could, ideally, alternate as an office or children’s playroom. A computer/study space and laundry complete this level. Garden Level: This tremendous recreational area opening to the gardens offers splendid amenities for casual family/guest enjoyment. There is a media room with stone fireplace, a wonderful game/recreation room with wet bar, full marble bath, a wine cellar and for romantic entertaining, a beautiful tasting room with marble fireplace.
