This palatial Italianate villa was designed in 1900 so that the view from the towers would be reminiscent of a Mediterranean village. In the 1890’s, the area known today as Hillcrest Park was developed by Joseph Dillaway Sawyer, who was noted for his large and exotic houses. With its roof of red tile, it stretches a full city block with its length of 228 feet, and was built to fit the contour of the ground. The park-like property extends over 9.72 acres and is comprised of rolling lawns and old trees. “The Towers”, as it was also called, was once one of the show places of Greenwich and was featured in How to Make a Country Place, written by Sawyer in 1914. A winding drive bordered by beautiful blue spruce leads to this Moorish castle. Guests at one time were welcomed thru a porte-cochère up the broad stairway and into its hospitable halls. Today, the mansion is in disrepair and is being offered primarily for its land value. This property is on the market for the first time since 1957.
