Cinematic equestrian estate and family compound on 16+ acres with three residential structures providing a total of 11 bedrooms and 13 bathrooms in backcountry Greenwich, Connecticut. Enter through custom 20 foot tall wrought iron gates that meander down the drive to the handsome shingle-style main residence perfectly nestled on the private park-like property. Completely renovated in 2023, the main residence features an adjoining one bedroom guest house/pool cabana alongside the infinity edge pool, an aviary, multiple paddocks, vineyards, vegetable gardens and fruit orchards.
Designed by award-winning architect Rich Granoff and built by Drake Builders LLC for lavish entertaining, the heart of the main residence is a magnificent French eat-in kitchen with a wall of custom designed copper La Cornue stoves, cathedral ceilings, a spectacular wood inlay floor artistically crafted by John Yarema, a gas-fired fireplace and large folding glass wall that bring the outside in. Formal dining room, elegant living room, large entertainment room with an extraordinary bar with game room and a spectacular great room, all with unique fireplaces make this home perfect for hosting any event. Almost every room in the house, including the spacious library with fireplace open through French doors to a wraparound deck with breathtaking Western and Southern vistas.
The front hall leading to the second floor overlooks a dramatic wax-based fiber-finished photograph of upcoming dressage horse Derek, a stunning bay, photographed and installed by National Geographic photographer Ali Darvish. Behind the wall is the unparalleled primary bedroom suite with cathedral ceilings, its polished White Zebrino marble fireplace, Super Crystal Verde marble shower wall and a backlit white quartz vanity wall. Three ample en suite bedrooms complete the second floor. The third floor is comprised of a very generous suite with sitting room, bedroom and bath with a backlit pink onyx shower wall. There is a large, walk-out unfinished lower level with stone fireplace that can be finished to taste.
The French Country guest house is ideal as guest, staff or grooms quarters and offers five bedrooms and five bathrooms. It includes a dramatic eat-in country kitchen and large family room, which opens out to an expansive stone veranda with an outdoor fireplace overlooking the orchards. The lower level has been outfitted with a tack room and an après riding lounge with fireplace and kitchenette.
The picturesque French Country style stables accommodate twelve horses and includes a manure management system. The property features a laser-leveled dressage arena with FootingFirst’s signature dust-free blend, TravelRight footing installed and maintained by Lawton Adams. There is also a viewing area overlooking the ring in addition to multiple paddocks with run-in sheds. The property benefits from access to the Greenwich Riding Trails located nearby.
The vineyards produce merlot and cabernet wine grapes. The orchard features apple, pear, peach and cherry trees. The gardens are dedicated to growing many different vegetables. The present owner has a peacock enclosure with waterfall, but it can be used for any type of fowl or small animal.
This extraordinary masterpiece available for the first time and presents unprecedented opportunity to acquire a hard to find compound with both a first-class equestrian facility and multiple dwellings.
