This newly listed estate was built in 1903 and is located on Field Point Circle in Greenwich, CT. The 20,000 square foot mansion boasts 6 bedrooms and 9 full and 7 half bathrooms. It is listed at a cool $42,500,000, which makes it the most expensive home currently on the market in Greenwich. My absolute favorite part of this home is the ballroom that turns into a natatorium. Wow!! What an amazing room!!

HERE ARE THE LISTING DETAILS:

In prestigious Field Point Park, this splendid century-old Long Island Sound compound is one of Greenwich’s most significant waterfront estates. Masterfully renovated, the expansive 6-bedroom, 20,000±-sq ft stone residence sits commandingly on 4.26± acres fronting 340 feet of shoreline showcasing magnificent vistas encompassing Greenwich Point and harbor islands. Inside, the grand 35-foot-high, marble-floored atrium gallery serves as a pivotal space from which the first-floor rooms unfold, beginning with the semi-circular, window-walled living room bringing in panoramic waterfront scenery. Library/gallery spaces are arranged on the main and garden levels, where a dramatic natatorium/ballroom features an elaborate mosaic floor that lowers with the touch of a button to transform into the indoor swimming pool. Waterside terraces are featured, and the sweeping park-like grounds encompass a pool, guest house, and guest cottage alongside the historic Roebling 175±-foot suspension bridge.

    I’ve loved this house for years, especially the Roebling bridge. I used to have friends that lived on Smith Road very close and was lucky enough once to be in this house. It’s absolutely beautiful and that was before the most recent renovation. The current decor is not my style but it’s perfectly appropriate for the house, if not a little boring. The price is a little astounding, although it IS Belle Haven waterfront.

    Get your golf clubs ready folks…

    On a lighter note, house is very nice. Not thrilled about the front, as it looks absolutely tiny. Love the huge foyer, the art gallery and the billiards room (although the pool table itself doesn’t fit in my opinion). I agree, that indoor pool is one really nifty and unique feature. I wonder how much the engineering costs were to construct it…all that water has to be recycled and go somewhere. And how do they dry the floors? Is it heated? Interesting indeed.

    I saw this home many times from the water over the years and it’s great to finally see the inside. I love these turn of the century homes because the quality of construction and style is so majestic looking…
    I don’t get thre indoor pool…is that a pool cover with the world map in photo 9?

      I’ve seen this pool design before. The floor sinks deeper into the foundation, allowing the water from the hidden pool to seep in around the edges. It is meant to be a space saver and energy thing. There’s a really cool video on youtube. check out their website.

      No, that’s the floor of the ballroom. It actually sinks into the floor, turning that space into a pool. Quite amazing, I have to say, although I think having a sliding floor would have been way simpler, although not near as cool. I assume the water level is like a foot below the “deck” until that floor drops down, which displaces the water and brings it up to normal pool levels. Even cooler is that the edges of the globe only sink a foot or so, creating seating ledges. I am amazed, but still, forget that asking price.

      Maybe 29.5 million.

    I hate to be a bitch but can you explain to me what exactly “a cool $42,500,000” is as opposed to just $42,500,000?

      Your comment made me laugh, it doesn’t mean anything it’s just a turn of phrase.

    GORGEOUS home, with an EQUALLY GORGEOUS lot, view and WAAAAY-T00-COOL hidden, indoor pool! The house is not my style at all, but it has magnificent lines, symmetry, positioning, and interior design! I really like the fact that the house is not anywhere near as historically “starched”, formal, & victorian on the inside as the houses’ chronological architecture is on the outside. And WHAT a LOCATION & VIEW. Outta’ sight…..BEST of all, though (of COURSE) is that INCREDIBLE hidden indoor pool. Anyone know of a good video of these sinking-floor-that-reveals-a-hidden-indoor-pool? Would luv to see one……thanks.

    Those Chimneys are so charming!
    I think it should be a CRIMINAL OFFENSE to strip a “historical” home of all its orginal character. This home is completely ruined.
