Steven Gambrel transformed this Georgian-style manor both inside and out to create the perfect sanctuary perched on the highest point in the prestigious Greenwich Conyers Farm Association’s Cowdray Park, with unobstructed views as far as the eye can see.
This is an unprecedented opportunity to buy an estate fully furnished and appointed with Gambrel-designed custom furniture, carpeting, lighting and accessories that imbue the enchanting manse with a sense of modernity and style. You need only bring your toothbrush and prepare to indulge your sense of luxury just in time for spring. Simon Johnson built his reputation by illustrating the marriage of landscaping and architecture, and nowhere is his genius epitomized more pristinely than throughout the winsome 14 acres he forged here, creating outdoor living space as stunning as the new Gambrel interiors. Stroll among the manicured foliage of your own private English country garden and escape into a world of your own.
The residence features stylish living space comfortably spread over four levels, including eight bedrooms, ten full bathrooms, three half baths and six fireplaces. Movement within the house is a pleasure, as each room fuses to the next while thrilling you with a unique artistry. Principal rooms present you with endless options for recreation, relaxation, creativity and productivity — a palatial reception hall, ravishing formal rooms, a paneled library, an orangery, an office, a gym, a billiards room, a sommelier’s dream wine cellar and a theater-quality screening room. Impeccable design meets smooth functionality in a gourmet kitchen and butler’s pantry that will entice even the most reluctant cook, while a state-of-the-art catering kitchen on the lower level facilitates large-scale entertaining.
The second-floor owner’s suite is a masterpiece unto itself with a bedroom, a sitting room and a private deck overlooking the verdant grounds, a luxurious bathroom and a pair of complementary dressing rooms bearing the size and finishes of a showroom. There are three secondary bedrooms, each decorated in its own serene style on this floor. The four remaining bedrooms are spread across three levels of the home, providing solitude when desired but with quick access to social areas. Two well-placed elevators also ease movement throughout the manor. Ample quarters for staff, a parking courtyard and a capacious seven-car garage that is sure to please the automobile aficionado are among the many amenities.
Weather will never limit your opportunity for aquatic recreation with both indoor and outdoor pools. The sun-drenched outdoor pool features an ivy-covered pool house. Not to be outdone is a stunning glass-enclosed indoor pool for year-round use. Estates such as this come to market only rarely.
