Old-style glamour in a modern home

The glamour of the 1930s meets contemporary amenities in this 12,078-square-foot Vineyard Lane property in Greenwich. 

The house — which was actually built in 1930 but renovated in 2014 — boasts sleek, modern, elegant new interiors by architect Grandberg & Associates. Contemporary overtones, a neutral palette, smooth stone finishes, art lighting and an open flow give the rooms — which are graced with barrel ceilings and seven fireplaces — a radiant feel. They include an up-to-date kitchen with a soaring 11-foot ceiling, Waterworks tiles and two chef’s islands; a clerestory stair hall; a walnut library; and a five-room master suite. (There are six bedrooms, with balconies, and eight full and three partial bathrooms in all.)

The extensive lower level has a pool cabana/bathroom, media room, nanny’s suite and a two-story wine cellar.

One of the great selling points of the house for the money — $11 million — is the 4.47 acres, which feature an illuminated driveway and courtyard with boxwood parterre, bluestone terraces, bucolic views, sweeping lawns, gardens, a serene pond and a pool, of course. (Got to have a pool if you have the cabana, after all.)

Can’t you just imagine a latter-day Jean Harlow swanning through the place?
