Have a look at this expansive and private luxury compound with a coveted Riverside location!
A curved driveway pulls you into the lushly landscaped grounds of this remarkable home, and it's almost as if you've instantly secreted away to an exclusive and secluded destination. Tree-shaded expanses of grass lawn, accented by attractive stonework patios and exquisite perennial gardens serving as the backdrop to an inviting heated pool and Thai-inspired cabana. One of the benefits of buying a home with surroundings such as these is that, even after blockbuster vacations to the most scenic areas of the world, we're certain your heart will still leap at the premise of returning back to your home base in Riverside. This is the type of lifestyle that's impossible to take for granted.
Originally built in 1957, the updated and expanded main residence is full of pleasant surprises and welcomed amenities. The well-equipped chef's kitchen has counter-space galore. The stone fire-placed family room has a unique barrel ceiling. There's a bright and mood lifting conservatory/solarium for your precious plants. The dedicated media room ensures for superior audio/visual entertainment options. A striking teak library serves as the perfect quiet hideaway to surround yourself with your favorite volumes and get lost in the pages of evocative stories.
All told, there are 6,379 square feet with 6 bedrooms and 3 full PLUS 2 half baths. The master suite is distinguished with a cove-ceiling, a sitting room, charming his/her baths, and a balcony to sip sunset drinks on as the slightly salty breeze whispers from Cos Cob Harbor across Riverside towards Greenwich Cove (where you'll have deeded access).
The enclosed, raised-bed organic vegetable garden PLUS serenity garden are appreciated and uncommon features.
Aging parents who like to visit? There's also an ADA-friendly guest house with an elevator, kitchenette, living room, dining room, double bedroom, bath, and washer/dryer.
Love cars or entertain often? You'll definitely value the courtyard parking and garaging for 5 cars.
Don't put it off - this home deserves some swift action. Make a call and a arrange a showing today. Be certain to let Cynthia know that you saw the home on Living Greenwich :-)
