Old Greenwich, CT, has always been highly desirable for homebuyers in the community, but with its oversized property (.67 acres) and more than 7,400 square feet of house, this large house stands out in the neighborhood.
“These are common characteristics of homes in other parts of town but rarely seen in Old Greenwich,” says Realtor Alison Leigh of Berkshire Hathaway Homes. The location remains highly desirable—even with a shift in priorities during the pandemic—with an easy walk to the village, park and beach, plus nearby outdoor dining options. The hilltop setting overlooking Long Island Sound affords stunning sunrises without being in the flood zone. Plus, it’s set in a private association of homes, with the private neighborhood beach just steps away.
As you enter, you’ll notice a tone of laidback lux. “The house and grounds celebrate old world charm and warmth, but are updated with modern systems and floor plan,” adds Leigh. Her favorite feature? The wrap-around porch that begins at the formal front entrance, leads to the screened in entertaining area and finishes at the heated pool with outdoor fireplace.
Multiple screened-in porches and a screened-in pool provide ample opportunity to enjoy the outdoors mosquito-free. Inside, a gourmet kitchen overlooks the sunken family room. Seven fireplaces throughout the home add a warm touch. There is a wine cellar that holds more than 1,000 bottles and garage space for four cars. A guest cottage has a one-bedroom apartment with kitchen and laundry.
“The home has the unique ability of combining sophistication with casual comfort,” says Leigh.
