The sparkling water of Converse Lake is visible from virtually every room of this exquisitely designed home in the prestigious gated community of Conyers Farm. Developed from the 1500 acre Converse Manor, Conyers Farm homes are on minimum 10 acre lots, set back from meandering country roads. It is the center of Polo in Greenwich, and horses can be seen grazing in fields.
Lush lawns and mature plantings embrace a 7 bedroom manor house, the product of a detailed and meticulous renovation by noted designer, David Easton. Elegant details and imported materials create a sophisticated yet comfortable home, perfect for wonderful daily living and fabulous entertaining.
The front door introduces a gracious entry, culminating in French Doors opening to a terrace and the glorious lake beyond. The living room opens into a delightful screened porch, running the full depth of the house, perfect for summer evenings. The amazing dining room features a fireplace and charming alcove, for romantic dining overlooking the lake.
Gourmet kitchen, charming breakfast room, family sitting area and inviting family room unfold onto a generous dining terrace overlooking the pool and the lake beyond.
Beautifully crafted stairs, or a convenient elevator, lead to five second floor bedroom suites, each infused with a unique character, charm and great light. The luxurious master suite features a sitting room, two dressing areas and two baths, enjoying lake views and superb light. A delightful bedroom suite overlooks the property and the lake from its third floor aerie.
Indoor fun abounds in the lower level: a movie theatre, large gym and billiard room beckon. There is a har-tru tennis court with tennis pavilion, a small island to which to kayak, and even fishing--this estate offers the ultimate country lifestyle less than one hour from New York City.
