    I would rather have Rockwood Manor…and I’d be saving over a million dollars which would furnish several rooms with some quality furnishings. This place, although nice, is extremely plain. Not to disparage anyone, but it looks like it belongs in Texas or New Jersey, not Greenwich. It just doesn’t have that $19 million feel to it.

    Normally I would salivate over a house of this vintage and style, but something is missing here. I can’t put my finger on what’s missing, but there just isn’t that unidentifiable “it”. Yes, it’s a lovely house and I’m sure the pictures don’t do it justice, but this place doesn’t make me swoon like a classic estate in Greenwich normally does.

      I was thinking the same thing, and I’m pretty sure the ceilings and lack of crown molding have something to do with it. Some sort of ornamentation on the ceilings is required, especially when the rooms are relatively low.

        Yeah, the interior is “nice”, in the way someone says a blind date is really “nice” (and has a great personality). For the price I would like wonderful or stunningly beautiful, not just nice.

        ?? If you mean to say the the ceilings in the room are low, then I’m confused, Daniel. I’m quite sure it’s just the opposite…..if a room has low ceilings, the last thing you want to do is call attention to them, due to any ornamentation making the ceilings appear even lower.

    I think someone may have gotten the address mixed up? I saw 25 Sherwood Ave. Greenwich.

    I actually like this one. But they didn’t decorate the whole house the same, every room looks different in style. But I like the library/office and the sunroom(?). That last room looks great to me.

    But it’s definitely 19 million.

      Has to be:

      But it’s definitely NOT 19 million.

    The exterior is ugly, while the interior is homey, but it’s not something special.

    It is certainly overpriced.You’d expect something more classier for $18,900,000.

    I lived at Beechcroft for about 30 years….
    The most wonderful and beautiful home….nothing like the lousy photos…
    like living in paradise ….nothing laking only beauty and harmony
    unfortunately the folks that bought it after we left hacked away 50 years of landscaping….I guess they didn’t know any better….
    the giant oak was at the center of the driveway in front of the house…there were many trees and rhododendrons surrounding and caressing ……the rooms were
    lovely and wonderful …each with a private bath….there was a childrens wing with 2 suites….nothing could have been more beautiful….I know many mansions in Greenwich….ours was by far the most beautiful….not out of wack with giant ceilings and unlivable hotel like space. There was an apple orchard …rose gardens a greenhouse where my mother raised fuchsias that she pruned into trees …some 12 and 15 years old.
    This home is the real deal….classier…get a grip…send me a photo of where you grew up!

    Maybe my mother was the only one who
    Knew what to do.
