    Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous exterior and grounds. The front entrance is really pretty and is just a lovely approach to the house. The interior has some nice spaces, but the decor is completely uninspired; the dull-as-dishwater furnishings and accessories don’t generate any excitement. The kitchen looks spacious but doesn’t look the least bit special and most of the other rooms are yawnfests.

    FWIW, the house is located at 218 Clapboard Ridge Road, and there are some additional pics here: http://bit.ly/17KA0Lr

    Lovely exterior. Would love pulling up to that front entrance in a Duesenberg or Bugatti. Interior is pure old farts.

    Exquisite exterior. I think what I love the most about it is that even with it’s large size and hefty pricetag, nothing about it is screaming LOOK AT ME!!!! Instead it seems to be saying: Here I am; appreciate.

    Anyone driving into the courtyard would have taste and refinement as their first impressions. A $25 million manse in Miami or Atlanta or New Jersey always seems to have to be trying to prove that a lot of money went into building the house. Common sense would say a lot of money went into building Linden Court, but it’s too tasteful to make it a central point of view. I like that. It chose style and substance over glamor and flash.

    That being said, the interior took sedate to the point of boring then kept going into comatose. To a certain extent I was not surprised, but I would have liked to have been. None of the rooms made any kind of impression either way. There’s nothing to dislike, but unless you’re a spinster aunt taken to collecting cats, there’s nothing to like about it either. Someone needed to turn some of that stately refinement inward and oomphed up the rooms. The kitchen was particularly disappointing.

    I really want to love this home. It saddens me, I don’t. Enough of old money still resides in Greenwich, that this should never have happened. Some Wall Streeter will by this as a country retreat. It will serve it’s purpose, but way short of it’s potential.

    I can smell the old money through my laptop. You can bet a week in Bermuda that the fountain in the back has some really really old koi swimming around. They live far longer then their owners and are a great selling point to someone who wants an old money house.

    I’m pretty sure it’s just staged and not furnished as if someone lives there.

      I take that back. The furnishings aren’t staged; at least if they are, putting a siamese cat along with a cat tower in one picture is really stretching the staging. 😉

    Just classic and elegant. Typical Greenwich, nothing that interesting.
