Waterside allure

Architecture and landscape combine to dramatic effect at this superb waterfront manor that captures the ultimate luxury lifestyle in a premier locale.

On scenic Kirby Pond, a tranquil protected inlet that opens to the sparkling blue waters of Long Island Sound, the 1.15-acre setting is beyond compare. The majestic residence is equally extraordinary. Set high on a crest, the home seems to float over the water yielding a sense of peace and privacy that is simply irresistible.

In fact, the serenity of this spot is so complete that it is surprising to find that both Rye and Greenwich are just minutes away, and New York City is within a 35-minute drive.

Inside, no detail was overlooked in the creation of this sophisticated home. A dynamic mix of fine traditional architecture and the latest 21st-century luxuries, the interiors offer a level of craftsmanship and quality that is truly remarkable. Custom millwork, rich woods, soaring ceilings, gorgeous fireplaces and abundant French doors refine the living areas, which all open to terraces and the astounding water vistas that never cease to delight.

View-filled formal rooms, a tour-de-force kitchen, vastly scaled family and recreation areas and a spectacular indoor pool are among the many other special highlights.

Outside, the beautifully planted landscape has been designed for the utmost in privacy. Offering plenty of space for outdoor recreation, including a children’s playground, the grounds take full advantage of the substantial private waterfront where swimming and boating can be enjoyed.

A modern-day masterpiece offering a truly extraordinary backdrop for living and entertaining, this special estate stands as one of Rye’s most exceptional offerings.
