Estate of the Day: $10.5 Million European Estate in Greenwich, Connecticut


European craftsmanship is rendered to perfection in this custom-built estate, ($10,500,000) a designer’s own residence, created as a labor of love with attention to detail that exceeds every expectation. Crafted of hand-chiseled stone, this quietly grand manor sets the stage for gracious entertaining. Classically elegant adornments include museum-quality plaster moldings, Venetian plaster and elaborate millwork. Appointed with Bordeaux-patterned floors and a limestone fireplace, the majestic two-story salon opens to the south terrace, tiered lawns, pool and rock waterfall in park-like splendor. Fireplaces also warm the Old World library and family room adjoining the epicurean’s kitchen with La Cornue range. The sumptuous master suite features a sitting room with fireplace, dressing areas, a mosaic-and-gold-leaf-embellished bath and an exercise room. This magnificent property resides on the grounds of the former Rockefeller estate in the prestigious Rock Ridge area, close to Central Greenwich.
