A Stanwich stunner

The classic meets the contemporary in this Colonial Revival property.

The classic meets the contemporary in this Colonial Revival property whose modern pool house was designed by Mockler Taylor Architects. The pool offers multiple seated areas, a built-in kitchen, a bathroom, surround-sound speakers, gorgeous fireside lounging and a dramatic view of the 8,000-square-foot house from its perch high on the 2-acre Stanwich Road site in Greenwich. 

Guests are welcomed by a 2-story foyer with herringbone hardwood floors, gorgeous archways, high ceilings and dentil moldings. It leads to generously proportioned rooms that are rich in Classic Revival-style detail. The first floor has a large living room, a dining room, a kitchen with built-in banquette seating, a breakfast room, a large mudroom, a family room that looks out on a terrace and a library that offers cozy fireside entertaining with a built-in grill. (There are six fireplaces throughout the 28-room house.) The lower level is fully equipped for entertaining guests as well as being the perfect place for fitness and play. It includes an en-suite bedroom with a private entrance, a gym, a playroom, a wine cellar, a wine-tasting room and a billiards room. The second floor offers three en-suite bedrooms with built-ins and large closets plus a spacious master suite. This suite features a fireplace, two bathrooms with views of the backyard — there are eight full and two half bathrooms in all — and two expansive dressing rooms, each with its own cedar closet.

Brooklyn-based interior designer Lesley Lowe has used a neutral palette, and luxurious high-end fabrics and wall coverings throughout the house, which can be purchased for $4.2 million fully furnished. Pack just your toothbrush and you are good to go.
