Property description
This exquisite shore ''cottage'' in Old Greenwich is set high on a bluff with the main entrance to level first floor hidden from view on private Buffham Lane. Enjoy vistas across to Greenwich Cove from the pool and many rooms inside this stunningly beautiful house, which is a custom complete redesign and expansion of a 1920's beach house by SoperBabcock,. This beautiful newer construction offers the ultimate summer experience year 'round. Indoor living extends easily outdoors with extensive terraces and porches overlooking the pool and gorgeous gardens and Cove view beyond. There are three levels of living with bedrooms on each level allowing for guests and live-ins. An open plan gourmet kitchen with adjacent family room with fireplace( featuring a floor-to-ceiling honed Calcutta marble surround) is the heart of the house with a ''floating, live-with-your-wine-as-art'' wine cellar. Top of the line appliances,5-inch marble counter tops, custom Italian cabinetry, and a large walk-in pantry are among the many special features. Entertaining is easy here: informally at the oversized banquette, or outside through French doors on the covered porch, or more formally in the dining room overlooking the gardens and with a special storage closet for crystal. A butler's pantry/bar area has a dishwasher specific for crystal. The step-down separately situated living room allows for versatile use with comfortable seating around the fireplace and sleek built-ins that comprise all the features needed for a home office/ study. Triple exposure and doors to the gardens outside add to the allure of the space. There is a beautiful first floor bedroom suite off the same hallway. Upstairs, the light-filled primary bedroom suite with Cove views has a spa-like lavish bath and two incredible walk-in closets as well as a separate closet for luggage. Three additional bedrooms include a very large suite opening to balcony and two rooms each with distinctive features sharing a gorgeous bath. A separate laundry room on this floor is augmented by a second laundry for pool on the lower level. Also on lower level, there is a huge gym with ten foot ceilings, a lovely guest suite with bath, and a space with plans for a 2000 bottle wine cellar/tasting room to be utilized in conjunction with the upstairs wine area. Additional features include a sunny home office near the back door, a mudroom as well as multiple guest closets, powder room, an expansive two-car covered parking area with secure storage above on lift for bicycles and boating gear, and an outdoor kitchen adjacent to pool and kitchen. Whether this is your weekend retreat or your full time residence, living is easy here....minutes from the Village and yet completely private. All within the Shorelands Association with private beach and dock just seconds away. The combination of light at the shore, breathtaking gardens and sea breezes all out of the flood zone make this a unique and wonderful setting. Look forward to winter when your outstanding water views become more expansive.
