Nick Churton of Mayfair International Realty vistits a very well thought out and beautifully presented home in the heart of Greenwich, Connecticut.
Broker: Houlihan Lawrence
Agent: Amanda Miller
Imagine the scene: a large and lovely Georgian styled house in over three acres and a handsome couple living there with four beautiful daughters. It could be something from a Jane Austen or Louisa May Alcott novel. But at least here at 37 Calhoun Drive in Greenwich, Connecticut there would have been little or no sibling squabbling about bedrooms. This is because each beautiful daughter had her own large bedroom, en-suite bathroom and walk-in closet – all big enough for the most clothes-conscious and privacy-seeking teenager.
No doubt there was some angst somewhere along the way, as in all families, but these beautiful daughters had two very sensible parents. Like Mr Bennet in Pride and Prejudice, who retired to the sanctuary of his library, they had given themselves some space between them and their beloved offspring. At the other end of this house they enjoyed a somewhat quieter life in a retreat which was less like a master suite and more like a luxurious private apartment. Clever them – and they were even smarter on the lower garden floor. Down there is a four-double-bunk-bed room with a huge fairytale stone fireplace – enough for four beautiful daughters and their four beautiful best friends to enjoy some memorable and noisy sleepovers. In fact you could house an army of beautiful daughters and their beautiful best friends here and still have room for more.
Paying for all this couldn’t be easier. The house is only a ten-minute casual stroll from the Greenwich rail station. From there Wall Street is a mere 90 mins away – so, the best of both worlds.
Take a look at the web page for a full inventory of rooms. There are many including a wine cellar, gym and yoga room. Outside there is a tennis court, swimming pool, half basketball court and guest/pool house. It is all here and looks magnificent. It is just the sort of place you could have a family wedding – or four!
