This six-bedroom home, atop an elevated two-acre property in a private neighborhood association off Lake Avenue, is the quintessential Greenwich, CT, estate. Every detail of the home is designed for a family who wants a luxurious lifestyle—whether a weekend escape, seasonal getaway or everyday home. “The location makes this property stand out among its peers,” says Kevin Sneddon, founder and lead broker at The Private Client Team at Compass. “It’s on a private lane, plus has tons of curb appeal and amenities.”
Inside and out, the home is ideal for entertaining. An elegant kitchen is anchored by a large center island and open to a grand family room with stone fireplace. Upstairs, the primary bedroom suite has two bathrooms and a double dressing room, while the five additional bedrooms have en suite baths. A spacious third level is ideal for an au pair or sleepovers with the extended family. Amenities inside include, on the lower level, a Crossfit-style gym, sports green, sauna, home theater, game room, wine cellar and family room.
Meanwhile, outside, an oversized pool, cabana and 7,000-square-foot custom stone terrace keep everyone entertained in warmer months. “The pool cabana with outdoor kitchen and wood-burning fireplace is amazing,” says Sneddon.
Lusciously landscaped with lots of room for outdoor activities, the property also has separate driveways for family and guests. “This is really the ideal home for a large family who loves to entertain,” adds Sneddon.
