By the sea and tucked away down a private lane on .63 of an acre with water views and a pool, this beautiful Old Greenwich retreat was once the carriage house of a turn-of-the-century coastline estate. Old world architecture belies the modern, loft-like spaces within. The idyllic location is just a mile from the village and stone’s throw from Tod's Point. Many of the original elements are seamlessly incorporated into this imaginatively transformed modern space.
Entertaining is easy here. Main rooms in front and back of house naturally expand in warm weather to wide brick patios and long lawns trimmed with gardens and specimen flowering trees. Gather with big groups or just a few friends in the versatile great room featuring a high beamed ceiling, a living room anchored by a massive limestone fireplace, a billiards space, and a dining area with a wall of south-facing French doors. The two-story stairwell with floor-to-ceiling windows streams light across the first floor and showcases a beautiful hand crafted stair railing. Linger long hours in the sunny eat-in kitchen and family room and retreat to write the great novel or simply work quietly at home in the adjacent, but separate home office with independent exterior access through an original Dutch door. With a full bath nearby, this room doubles as a first-floor bedroom. Upstairs, there are five distinctive bedrooms, all with soaring ceiling heights, including the master suite with a balcony overlooking the pool. The four additional bedrooms and third full bath are unique in their character and set apart by the wide upstairs hallway.
Uniquely secluded and quiet, this is a rare opportunity to own an exceptional home in the heart of the Old Greenwich shoreline community.
