The House: 41 Binney Lane, Old Greenwich, Connecticut
The Broker: Houlihan Lawrence
The Agent: Ellen Mosher
Nick Churton of the Houlihan Lawrence London office enjoys visiting a wonderful house in an amazing location overlooking Long Island Sound.
If 41 Binney Lane, Old Greenwich, Connecticut where standing for political office its mantra would be, “it’s the view stupid”.
So get an eyeful of this!
The house stands on a one-acre, rocky-aproned promontory on 235 feet of Old Greenwich shore. It is enough of a spit of land to give the attractive house extra visibility of the surrounding coastline and over the Long Island Sound to Long Island itself.
The position is maximised by an 85-foot private pier to a deep-water mooring and swimming platform. For a less salty bathing option there is a pool and spa on the elevated terrace.
Elevation is important in this part of the world. Being set well over sea level gives ample protection from adverse weather conditions and patterns.
On this rocky dais stands a magnificent home designed to take full advantage of its dominant position. It’s very comfortable with six bedrooms, sunroom, wet bar, triple aspect library and staff wing.
If you could ever drag yourself away it is only a short walk from the village.
For the more adventurous it takes about three hours to paddle cross Long Island Sound in a kayak. So you can work out how long it would take to reach a suitable Long Island waterside restaurant in a jet-powered Hinckley sport boat at 52 mph.
Make no mistake, this is a once in a generation chance for a serious piece of iconic real estate.
