Architectural integrity abounds in this beautifully remodeled Jacobethan (Jacobean revival) estate on 3.75 acres in a prime mid-country Greenwich location. The brick exterior, laid in Flemish bond, is trimmed with limestone and accented with wooden beams, copper drainpipes, terra cotta, and marble. Bas relief plaques tell mythological and biblical stories as well as knighthood tales from the original English manor home upon which this 1930 Tudor was modeled. The "Fountain Yard" at the front of this stately residence is reminiscent of the English countryside, with its formal manicured gardens, flower carvings, and large cobble stone parking courtyard. A separate drive leads to a freestanding building comprised of an additional 3-car garage with a 2-bedroom apartment above. A grand front-to-back foyer leads to a welcoming fully outfitted wet bar and a lovely library with coffered copper ceiling, wood burning fireplace, copious built-ins, and doors to the special loggia leading to the rear gardens and swimming pool. Across the breadth of this magnificent home, a spectacular brick terrace with built-in stone seating areas offers a peaceful setting from which to take in the splendid landscape. The estate's interior has been totally and exquisitely renovated with care and authenticity. A cook's kitchen, with all the "bells and whistles" demanded by today's gourmet chef, serves as a gathering place for family and friends. A Wolf 6-burner range, a glass-faced fireplace, and an adjacent breakfast room ensure cozy dining. Upstairs there are six en suite bedrooms and several other multi-purpose rooms which can be utilized as sleeping quarters, playroom, or even a billiard room. All rooms have been recently renovated and decorated for elegant living. A large, full-height basement is ready for completion. A bonus studio/exercise room with full bath above the home's oversized garage is convenient to the pool and tennis court, and is perfect for guests or staff. Timeless beauty and a plethora of historic features await in this unique estate residence. Julianne Ward of Prudential Connecticut Realty has the listing.
