This elegant French style country home in Greenwich has everything that modern living and entertaining can offer: beauty, comfort, quality, location, space, sunlight and a beautiful infinity pool. This home sits up high close to Town and is well connected to private and public schools, the Merritt Parkway, Westchester Airport and the Westchester Mall.

The large and comfortable master bedroom has spacious walk-in closets, a fireplace, a private sitting area and a balcony that looks out to the pond. The elegant master bathroom includes a steam shower. Three further large bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms complete the sleeping quarters on the second floor, two of which have fireplaces. The third floor includes a spacious room that can be used as a large office or game room, a walk-in cedar closet, a bar with a Sub Zero fridge as well as the fifth bedroom with en-suite bathroom. A 950-pound ThyssenKrupp elevator serves the house.

The kitchen with its custom crafted painted wood cabinets and marble countertops and backsplashes includes an expansive breakfast/eat-in area. Two dishwashers, a Viking oven and a Sub Zero fridge and freezer complete the kitchen.

The family room also doubles up as a home theater. There is a more formal and beautiful living room. Each of these rooms has a fireplace and a handcrafted mantle to provide spacious and comfortable day-to-day living and entertaining. The dining room is formal and spacious and has a small kitchen attached to it with yet another dishwasher and elegant cabinets for storage.

The library/office features solid mahogany paneling and bookcases a masonry fireplace with a granite surround and a wet bar. Beautiful hardwood floors and high ceilings give this home a very real sense of space. This home also has in-built NILES Audio multi-room sound system throughout.
A finished basement includes a sauna, a steam shower in the basement bathroom, a small gym and kitchen, a laundry room, a wine cellar and a three-car garage.

The South West facing garden is a pleasure to enjoy as it receives the afternoon sunlight that also shines on the main house. The setting is complete with a heated infinity pool and Jacuzzi/spa. In order to enjoy the garden in the evenings, landscape lighting was installed in both the front and back gardens. A 20KW GE generator provides peace of mind.

The exquisite workmanship and beauty of this home defines understated elegance and is the ideal place to live and entertain. Beautifully maintained.
