Hidden at the end of a gated private drive, on 2.2 idyllic acres near downtown Greenwich, this light-filled 5,337-square-foot residence exemplifies the timeless classicism and symmetry of East Coast Colonial style. A thoughtful renovation has created a home with light-filled interiors boasting a sophisticated minimalist hue that is both stylish and soothingly serene.

Encouraging exceptional living and chic entertaining is a living room with a striking green marble fireplace, built-in bookshelves, and plentiful windows. Accompanying this space and the adjoining formal dining room is a wet bar that catches the eye with its cheerful bright blue hue and glass shelving. Sure to be the heart of the home, the sunroom-like kitchen and family room features sleek stainless-steel appliances, an island with counter seating and handsome pendant lighting, and walls of windows offering beautiful views of the very private property. French doors open from the family room to a raised stone terrace overlooking the enveloping manicured green lawn. A library or office with a wall of richly toned built-ins and a private bedroom and bath—perfect for visitors or staff—are conveniently located on the main level as well. A three-car garage is a welcome amenity.
The remainder of the private quarters, secluded on the second level, include a master suite with a stately tray ceiling, dual walk-in closets, a sitting room, and a spacious spa-inspired bath. In addition to three double bedrooms with en suite baths, this floor also includes a generous fitness room, a convenient laundry room, and a versatile space suitable for use as a study. Beneath a classic wood-shingled roof accented by dormer windows are a third-level playroom, an easily adaptable space that could function as a sixth bedroom, and enviable attic storage space.
Roughly 40 minutes from midtown Manhattan by express train, Greenwich offers tranquil parks, adventurous playgrounds, beaches, a golf course, tennis courts, ball fields, nature trails, an Audubon center, museums, health and fitness facilities, a robust shopping district, a thriving arts community, and an exciting restaurant scene.
