Old Greenwich has us dreaming of sunny days by the pool. The low-key area is actually the oldest of Greenwich’s neighborhoods and offers a true small town feel.
Mansion Global calls it a neighborhood for ‘Quieter’ money. And the two homes we feature in this Splurge vs. Steal offer so much beauty for the price! Each Old Greenwich gem comes with a prime location and lush greenspace but with price points that are miles apart. Which is more you, the Shore Road Splurge or the Ferris Drive Steal?

Splurge: Dreamy Old Greenwich Estate With Lush Outdoor Oasis For $4.595M
First, let’s gaze at this dreamy Old Greenwich estate. The five-bedroom, five-full-and-one-half-bathroom home sits on a rare 0.55-acre lot and epitomizes luxury living indoors and out.

The exquisite open floor plan is filled with spaces that promote easy living, with an open gourmet kitchen to the huge family room, a formal dining, and home office. But it’s what’s outside that really catches our eye.
You might never want to leave this picturesque and private lawn! It comes complete with a sparkling pool and towering trees. The listing says, “The backyard oasis is truly unique.
