Luxury Outlook 2022
An ambitious exploration into high-end residential markets across the globe.
Sophisticated modernity meets classical elegance in this stylish 11,150-square-foot residence conceived by illustrious Connecticut architect Alex Kaali-Nagy. An impeccably manicured lawn, precisely positioned trees, and a stately stone Georgian façade belie the distinctive aesthetic of the home’s remarkably generous interiors, which include an array of formal living and entertaining areas, relaxed spaces for private recreation, and six restful bedroom suites. All four levels are linked by both an elevator and a graceful spiral staircase.

On the main level, handcrafted millwork, mahogany paneling, custom cabinetry, double-height ceilings, and quarter-sawn oak flooring contribute to an air of refinement, while eye-catching textures and colors add touches of whimsy. The roomy, airy kitchen features top-caliber stainless-steel appliances, counter seating at its oversized marble-topped island, and a delightful breakfast area opening to a deck that overlooks the pool and sun-washed terrace.
One level above, comfortable carpeting, a fireplace, and tall windows affording a view across the grounds create a tranquil oasis in the spacious owner’s bedroom, which is accompanied by two walk-in closets, two dressing rooms—one of which is a window-wrapped space ideal for serving as a sitting room or office—and a bath with a soaking tub beside a warming fireplace of its own. Lovely light pervades the guest bedrooms, each of which has a distinctive design and ambience. The uppermost level includes a game room, closet space, a full bath, and a bedroom or office perfect for quiet concentration.
Diversion is the order of the day on the home’s ground level, which offers a cozy family and billiards room with a handsome fireplace, an enviable wine cellar, a fully equipped gym, a full bath with a sauna, and a four-car garage. A vibrantly hued cabana and wet bar equipped with an ice maker, dishwasher, and refrigerator gives way to the refreshing pool and spa, which are surrounded by an expansive sunny terrace. The main deck overlooks it all from above.
The pristine property is adjacent to more than 16 acres of protected conservation land, and the location, in Greenwich’s prestigious Round Hill Road area, makes this estate a stylish opportunity not to be missed.
