A place for splendid country entertaining

You look at the house on Round Hill Road in Greenwich and the imagination runs wild.

Early summer nights sipping drinks on the screened-in porch that commands views of gardens, meadows and mature groves. Or maybe small talk in the double-height great room with its antique beams, three exposures and French doors opening onto a stone terrace and veranda.

Cozy get-togethers in the family room before a vintage stone fireplace — the state-of-the-art gourmet kitchen just a step away. Elegant, chatty dinners in the formal dining room with its built-in china cabinets a sure conversation piece.

But most of all, that two-level vintage barn: Wouldn’t that be magnificent for the country weddings that are all the rage now?

After all this entertaining in your $9.4 million home, you might just have to reserve some quality downtime in the library/office, curling up with a good book from one of the custom shelves.

With more than 11,000 square feet of space, this 5-acre, 17-room estate marries a thoughtful renovation of the original antique house with a spectacular new addition to create an unparalleled, sun-dappled residence. The grand double-height living room features a beamed ceiling and wood-burning fireplace. A lovely bedroom with an en suite bathroom is ideal for guests. 

A graceful curved staircase leads to the second floor. The gracious master suite includes a bedroom with multiple windows overlooking the property, a comfortable sitting room with a balcony, a luxurious spa-like bath and two large custom closets. Additionally, there are four double bedrooms with beautiful en suite bathrooms. 

Characterized by multiple windows, the expansive lower level offers a billiard room, a family room, a potting room, a home gym, an office with a private entrance and access to a three-stall stable. 

A comfortable two-bedroom apartment and a heated pool are just a few of the other amenities that make this compound an exceptional playground.
