A wraparound porch and views of the water: Could anything be more idyllic on a summer day? It can be yours year-round at this piquant shingle-style Colonial in Greenwich, overlooking Tower Island and Long Island beyond.
This 7,111-square-foot custom home, set on Byram Shore Road, offers fabulous waterfront views at every turn, from the deep-water dock that anchors the more than 1- acre, manicured property to the open first-floor plan that enables you to access the porch from most rooms.
High ceilings, custom windows — some of them oval — and antique chestnut floors create a traditional, maritime feel in a house that was built in 1998. A generous master suite spans the back of the house and includes a sitting room, study and private balcony. Three other bedrooms, a separate studio, a wine cellar, five and a half bathrooms and an unfinished basement are just a few of the spaces that comprise this gracious, manageable getaway convenient to both downtown Greenwich and New York City.
The house is on the market for $8,995,000. For more, contact Heather Platt at 203-983-3802 and Fran Ehrlich at 203-249-5561 or 203-618-3164.
