Estate of the Day: $23.5 Million Inspired Classic in Greenwich, Connecticut


Stunning on 22 acres in gated Conyers Farm, this extraordinary shingle style country house ($23,500,000) bridges the classic and modern in a private, serenely picturesque landscape. The timeless design by noted architects Fairfax & Sammons refines tradition with innovative sensibilities. Resplendent in limed oak millwork, the great hall introduces the 17,000 square-foot living space fashioned not only for domestic comfort and gracious entertaining but also as a private gallery for its owners’ preeminent collection of contemporary art. Perfect proportions are complemented by classical details, white oak floors and elaborate chimney pieces. The garden room’s hand-painted floor was inspired by the work of renowned Color Field painter Kenneth Noland. Park-like vistas open over a sweeping series of gardens with pool, pool house, tennis court & wisteria-covered pergolas. Published in “American Houses: The Architecture of Fairfax & Sammons”, this is a sophisticated country estate of immeasurable appeal.
