Designed by a prominent Greenwich architect, this stately Newport Shingle Style residence ($6,495,000) rests on four serene backcountry acres adjacent to the Babcock Preserve. Classic elegance is tempered by inviting warmth in rich detailing executed with workmanship of the highest caliber. From the impressive double-height reception hall with patterned hardwood flooring, the principal rooms proceed in a graceful flow, beginning with the elegant living room centered on a limestone fireplace. Fireplaces also anchor the handsome cherry library and family room adjoining the epicurean’s kitchen with cherry cabinetry and granite counters. French doors open to the wide porches, slate-terraced pool and glorious gardens by a renowned landscape designer. Opening to a private deck, the sumptuous master suite creates an elegant sanctuary with fireplace plus two marble baths and dressing rooms. An enormous game/media room is also on the second floor.
