Just minutes from Greenwich High School, this historic colonial has occupied this spot for more than a century but it’s anything but stuffy, with fresh, white modern interiors, charming built-ins and lots of natural light, that make it ideal for the modern family.
“It’s a phenomenal property that has generously sized rooms with high ceilings and an easy first floor flow,” says Jenny Allen, real estate agent at Compass in Greenwich, CT. The home, just north of Route 1 in central Greenwich, is also close to downtown Greenwich, trains and the highway.
The interiors have been updated over the years, but the grand staircase, high ceilings, generously proportioned rooms and substantial stonework on the exterior hark back to the home’s 1900 beginnings. “It’s more than 5,700 square feet above grade with amazing entertaining space,” notes Allen.
A sunroom off the living room has French doors that lead to an exterior staircase down to the pool. “My favorite space would be the sunroom overlooking the pool,” says Allen.
Inside, a chef’s kitchen opens to a family room with fireplace for casual gatherings with family and friends. Living and dining rooms provide space for formal entertaining. Upstairs, the primary bedroom suite has a sitting area, office, balcony, walk-in closets and bathroom with double vanity, marble shower and tub, and window seat with storage below.
On the third level, a large recreation room has a drop-down screen for movie watching. “One press of the button and a screen and projector fall from the ceiling—so easy!” says Allen. The lower level has a second recreation space with fireplace, billiards room, full bath and built-in bar.
“This is a turn-key home with more than 2.4 acres of property in central Greenwich,” says Allen. “The home is amazing!”
