Wondrous woodwork amid stately splendor

This house on Pecksland Road gives fresh, stately meaning to the phrase “coming out of the woodwork.”

This house, which is on Pecksland Road in Greenwich, is indeed an exceptionally gracious stone and brick Tudor-style manor. But the material you think of when you SEE the interior is not necessarily stone or brick but wood — fabulous rich woods, including white oak, in the grand, sweeping hall, the living and dining rooms, the Great Room, the den, the kitchen cabinetry, the butler’s pantry, the balcony, the French doors and the window trims.

Such architectural details define this 14,535-square-foot house that rests atop a gently winding drive through a park-like 4-acre setting. And they help give the seven-bedroom residence, which was built in 2001 and also contains nine full baths and one partial bathroom, great presence and scale throughout. The craftsmanship and flow of rooms also provide an elegant atmosphere for entertaining and family life. 

Meanwhile, floor-to-ceiling windows, which flood the reception hall with afternoon light, offer panoramic views of the pond, flowering and mature trees, a stone terrace and amenities that will delight both the serious and casual athlete. There’s a 60-foot-long pool and spa built in 2015 as well as a tennis court. Other features include a one-bedroom stone cottage overlooking the pond, and a garage for 12 cars, a full house generator and indoor and outdoor security cameras. Gated and fenced, the property offers both privacy and proximity as it’s but 10 minutes to town and school. 

While it’s listed for $10 million, it can also be rented for $40,000 per month on a long-term basis.
