    The interior is definitely not my style, it all looks a bit…’small’.
    All the ceilings are looking like they’re really low.
    One tip, if you want a fireplace, choose one that matches the (size) of the room. In photo #5, that fireplace is way to big for that room.

    But the front of the house; oh my. That definitely looks good!

      I think the angle at which pic 5 was shot is the culprit as far as its scale. I’d be willing to bet that fireplace looks a lot more proportionate in person. I do see what you mean though….I’d be curious to see a different angle.

    It’s typical Greenwich, but I like it for the most part. As mentioned, some rooms look a little compact, maybe because of the plush furnishings. I do like the details in the living room and kitchen. Other rooms have a musty look to them. Exterior looks nice and quaint.

    I agree with every one, but at least the home feels like a home, a place to raise children, a place to have pets, a place to grow old. Most houses in Greenwich are monuments to their owners greed. Also, Kenny, what happened to fridays Mansion of the day.

      You’re right about that. Although those huge mansions are probably fun to be at for a day, I wouldn’t wanna live there (for most of them). A home is the only place on earth which is completely yours and a place where you can withdraw yourself from the hectic world.
      So even if I had a pile of money, I would want a home that feels like a home, not a museum or a showcase of money.

    Even though it’s not my style, I really like it. It’s a nice change to see human-scaled rooms for a change. I don’t particularly like the furnishings in most of the rooms, but that’s easily fixed. I think with furniture better scaled to the room and some better paint colors, it would look much better. I really like the kitchen and family room, although the combo of furniture and the paneled ceiling make it look really low.

      I kept getting a feeling I couldn’t quite put my finger on as I was looking at all the pics (wish they had about three times as many pics, but oh well), and I think now that it was what you said about human-scaled rooms. Apparently that’s so uncommon in upper-end real estate that you don’t even realize right away when you see it! Quite refreshing.

    WHAT do you guys think would happen if someone, with BIG money, impeccable taste & brains hired an equally impeccable & smart CONTEMPORARY architect to build a modern masterpiece in the middle of hallowed, historic Greenwich?? Would all the Buffy & Biffs’ BigBucks band together in the middle of night with their designer jammies & torches and burn the place to the ground?? Or would they send Jeeves and Fi-Fi to do the deed? Or the Gardeners?? 🙂

      They would have their attorney’s hire someone, of course.

    Big problem with this house. It backs up to Steve Cohens house. (of SAC Capital Avisors). We’re talking a SHITLOAD of money there.

    Compared to Steve’s house, this place looks like a starter home. In the land of big swinging dicks, there’s nothing like having your next door neighbor having the biggest swinging dick around.

    Go on…head over to Bing and do a birds eye view. See what this house backs up against, and tell me whoever owns it is not going to have a bad case of penis envy.

      I think if I owned this house, I’d own it because I don’t care to have a swinging dick contest….I’d be pretty satisfied with the home that I put my heart and soul into, and FUCK what the homes around me look like.

      Just me though.

        Don’t get me wrong…I’m with you, but heck, this is Greenwich, and many many people who live there are really into the BSD thing.

          That is very true. I guess I’d be in the minority in a place like that. It is nice to see places that buck the trend though.

    I do like the general feel of this place, but I think I love the exterior a bit more than the interior. I LOVE when an almost brand new house can pull off the “I’ve been here for 75 years” look. This home just looks so planted and embedded in its surroundings that you’d swear it’d been there far before anyone had ever heard the term “nouveau riche”. I love love love rabidly traditional Georgian and Colonial exterior architecture, when it’s done with high quality materials and craftsmanship, and all of that seems to be on show here.

    Interior-wise, it’s a little too stuffy for me…I guess it’s down to some of the paint choices and wood and so-forth. A lot of times in homes’ interiors, I find I’m easier to please in the kitchen area than other areas, but I don’t like this one. Maybe it’s partly the color of the wood, but it looks dated already. I don’t think the ceiling should be the exact same look as the cabinetry either, and I think the room would benefit from a different type of cabinetry and counter for the center island. Other than that complaint, though, I like a lot of what I see. Shame there’s no more pics.
