There is simply nothing like the four-level glass and select white oak staircase at the center of this custom home at 70 Shore Rd. “It is truly one of the most beautiful custom features we’ve seen,” says Joy Kim Metalios, managing director and broker of Metalios Group Real Estate at Houlihan Lawrence.
But that’s not the only standout: Custom design features by Icon Interiors abound in this airy, modern and luxurious house minutes from the shore in Old Greenwich, from a waterfall marble kitchen island to spa-like en suite bathrooms, custom walk-in closets and the porte-cochere entrance.
The gourmet kitchen, for instance, was designed for a personal chef with seven-burner induction cooktop, double oven, full length wine cooler, full refrigerator and full freezer, and ice maker. “The space is perfect for entertaining,” says Metalios.
And for those moments you want to get away from it all, the master suite replicates a five-star boutique hotel. Wide-paneled hardwood covers the back wall, creating a stunning backdrop across from the double-sided gas fireplace with quartz surround. A full seating area opens through French doors to a private balcony. The oversized en suite is finished with marble floor-to-ceiling tile, a double vanity with porcelain sinks and marble countertop, a stand-alone spa-like tub and steam shower. “It’s a true luxury spa-like experience,” adds Metalios.
The home is generating buzz among buyers for its walkability to shops and restaurants in Old Greenwich but is also attractive to post-pandemic buyers, thanks to its open floor plan and lots of functional space to work and play. “The home is beautifully designed, but is also incredibly functional,” says Metalios. The oversized living areas are ideal for entertaining, while the home gym has full surround sound and mirrored wall. The lower level has a home office, movie room, private entry bedrooms, nine-foot ceilings and a top-of-the-line kitchenette with high-end appliances, providing everything you might need right at home. “The lower-level family room is amazing for overnight guests, in-laws, or even growing teens,” says Metalios. “All guests will love the privacy, space and high-end amenities.”
The home could be ideal as a year-round home in one of the top school districts in the state with all the amenities of downtown Greenwich, but also works as a summer escape: Spend days at the beach just steps away at Greenwich Point and entertain friends at night on the outdoor patio with outdoor grill. “The ideal buyer is anyone who appreciates luxury and location,” adds Metalios.
