From the soaring ceilings to the gorgeous hardwood floors, every detail of this custom colonial on a quiet cul de sac in backcountry Greenwich has been thoughtfully constructed and cared for.
Award-winning Granoff Architects designed and built the stone and shingle home with traditional details and modern amenities, including a whole house generator. “It has been meticulously maintained by the owners, making this home completely move-in ready,” says Jennifer Leahy, real estate agent with Douglas Elliman in Greenwich, CT.
A show-stopping front-to-back entry foyer welcomes guests in and creates excellent flow for entertaining. “I think it makes a great primary residence for a growing family who loves to entertain or a New Yorker who is looking for amenities and total privacy,” says Leahy.
The gourmet kitchen was recently renovated to include marble countertops, top-of-the-line appliances and a window- filled breakfast nook overlooking thegrounds. It flows into a step-down family room with wood-burning stone-surround fireplace flanked by floor-to-ceiling windows and French doors to the pool and patio. “I love the eat-in kitchen and family room area,” she adds. Plus, the first- floor home office has mahogany built-ins and a wood-burning fireplace with marble hearth.
Upstairs, the primary suite has high ceilings, two dressing rooms, a fireplace, an office, a spa-like bathroom and a balcony. Five en suite bedrooms complete the second and third floors.
On the lower level, opportunities for entertainment abound, with a home theater, bar, expansive wine cellar, billiards room, kids game room, workshop and exercise room. “I love the lacquered cabinets in the bar and the home theater is not to be missed,” says Leahy.
A heated pool and pool house provides room for outdoor entertaining or lounging, with indoor and outdoor seating areas, a wet bar, full bathroom and changing room.
The pool area is surrounded by a tranquil 4 acres, including thoughtfully designed gardens with boxwoods, mature trees and perennials. Adds Leahy: “My favorite time of year is during the springtime when the pergola is covered in wisteria.”
