An iconic local example of a Federal home - complete with a Greenwich Historical Society placard. Craftsmanship beyond compare. This week's Featured Open House Property is a North Street landmark that was built in 1855 and stirs the imagination as an imposing visual reminder of the grandeur of history and the colorful legacy of times gone by.
Even though it has been thoughtfully renovated, remodeled and carefully modernized by celebrated architect Sam Mitchell (in the not too distant past), you can rest assured, all of the Old New England architectural details that make this house so undeniably charming have been lovingly preserved.

The end result is a 6300 square foot residence on a coveted half acre slice of Greenwich with 6 bedrooms and 5.5 baths and a 'stairway of light' in the middle of the structure connecting the blend of formal rooms and casual living spaces. Media room. In-law suite. Dog kennel. Home gym. Even a synthetic ice hockey rink.
The chef's kitchen has a definite WOW factor with cabinetry and flooring that feel right at home in this house - current and fashionable, but imbued with the endearing essence of the historically vintage. This eat-in gourmet space, with a custom center island, is awash in a balanced blend of natural and electric lighting. Add in the top-of-the-line appliances and some expansive views of the outdoor garden room, stone terraces and a beautifully landscaped yard designed by Rutherford Associates -- and you may never want to leave this single room.
The walkability of the neighborhood this home sits in - along with the pride of ownership shown by the close-knit community of neighbors - all add to the attractive-factor of the location.
Also - the four conspicuous sleeping porches that help to make this home stick in the memory of everyone who sees it would finally be yours to decorate for the changing seasons! After all - the new owner is going to have to keep the tradition alive!
