Labor Day weekend has brought with it the expected lull in real estate sales and open houses within the Greenwich market. Just about everyone who's looking to be in the market soon - on the buying and selling sides - is quietly strategizing while waiting for the end-of-summer festivities to subside. That said, there were a few strong sales that managed to sneak across the finish line at the last minute - just in time for the negotiating parties to enjoy the Labor Day holiday weekend. (Scroll down lower on the page to see the details on most of those transactions.)
Our Featured Recently Sold Property this week represents one of these late-summer sales. Located on North Street in Greenwich, the understated facade of this home almost leaves you unprepared for some of the details and flourishes characterizing the inside and backyard living spaces it offers.
The pleasant surprises begin with the 5 bedrooms and 5 full baths spread across 5200+ square feet of (primarily) one-floor living. These spaces were all thoughtfully rebuilt in 1996 - and you can see the care taken in the attention to detail, quality of materials, and amenities included across the property.
Reclaimed wide plank flooring and reclaimed beams are on full display, all with the lived-in look and nostalgic feel that causes home-builders to seek out such materials.
A unique atrium in the center of the house brings the dramatic skies with their daytime sunlight and nighttime darkness, a true circadian rhythm, into the primary living space of this home.
You'll adore the kitchen with its antique tile flooring, utilizing re-purposed materials that find their original provenance on the roofs of European structures.
Evident everywhere is a passion for the love of top shelf building materials that have already had a first life somewhere else -- and bring their history, stories, and patina to this new home in a seamless fashion.
The two and a half acre lot provides privacy in abundance, plus all of the recreational enjoyment that a beautiful Wagner pool and spa with wide stone decking affords -- while still possessing a recognized North Street address, less than one mile from the Merritt Parkway.
