Beautiful New England Home
In a perfect marriage of architecture and interior design, a Greenwich house rooted in Continental tradition enfolds its owners in a magical blend of comfort and luxury.
On a brilliant afternoon, the sun knifes through tall trees across emerald-green lawns spilling in all directions. Should a gleaming horse-drawn carriage or a sleek Ferrari pull up, neither would seem misplaced. As welcoming as it is gracious, this Greenwich house blurs the distinction between past and present. Not readily apparent is the five-car garage below, the state-of-the-art elevator or the manner in which the generous ground floor walks out in back to the landscape and an enviable pool.
The newly constructed home’s overall demeanor dovetails with history. The architectural style—Georgian colonial—has roots, after all, stretching back to the ancient Greeks and Romans. Half a dozen shades of granite give the exterior a definite I’ve-been-in-New England-for-ages look. Inside, classic details intermingle with upscale amenities. This seamless union of old and new in every little detail springs from a highly personal vision.
