Beauty in Greenwich backcountry

Few places are more casually imposing than Greenwich’s verdant, rolling backcountry and this exceptional brick Georgian manor house on North Street proves why.

Designed by Hilton Vanderhorn with a slate roof, the 11,500-square-foot residence is perfectly sited on more than 4 private acres of sweeping lawns and established landscaping. Characterized by high ceilings, exquisite architectural detail and remarkable craftsmanship, this 13-year-old house offers 16 well-proportioned rooms — including seven bedrooms, nine full bathrooms and three half-baths — filled with natural light. A grand, double-height reception hall features an impressive curved staircase, setting the mood. The living room is graced by a wood-burning fireplace and French doors opening to a large stone terrace. There’s another fireplace and a floor-to-ceiling bay window in the formal dining room, which accommodates both large parties and intimate dinners. A stunning paneled library has a distinctive coffered ceiling as well as another wood-burning fireplace. The marvelous chef’s kitchen opens onto a comfortable family room, which also offers a wood-burning fireplace and French doors to the stone terrace. A lovely double bedroom and en suite bathroom is perfect for guests and completes the first floor. 

The second floor offers a stunning master bedroom with a fireplace, two luxurious bathrooms and French doors opening to a private balcony overlooking the spectacular grounds. There are four additional bedrooms, each with an en suite bathroom. An expansive third floor, offering flexible space, is currently used as another family room. The lower level contains an array of entertainment possibilities with a billiard room that has a full bar, a home theater, an exercise room with a sauna, a wine cellar, a humidor and a bathroom, as well as the laundry, maid’s room and bathroom. Additional amenities include a heated pool, a fire pit and a four-car garage that actually accommodates six cars. 

With a listing price of $7,750,000, it’s a property not to be missed.
