Paul Starrett, the man behind the Empire State Building among many other New York icons, created one of his own at 29 Hillside Road in Greenwich, Connecticut. And it could be yours to the tune of $8.295 million! See why this week’s “What Can I Get” has us starry-eyed.
Own A Piece Of Greenwich History With Sparkling Pool And Fairytale Gardens
Erected at the height of his career in 1928, the expansive 2.83-acre English stone manor is a piece of Greenwich history. One can only imagine the time and effort Starrett poured into his own home! Here is what we know.
First, the seven-bedroom, seven-full-and-four-half-bathroom estate boasts fortress-like walls reinforced with steel — many of which are two feet thick. Secondly, these walls are softened by a mix of stone, stately hedges, and wrought-iron gates. The result is a 15,710-square-foot Greenwich retreat of the highest order, complete with striking swimming pool, pool house, lush gardens, and opulent interiors.
Greenwich English-Style Manor Epitomizes Timeless Luxury Living
Of course, luxury abounds inside as well where generously proportioned rooms are outfitted with breathtaking modern amenities.
This includes a state-of-the-art kitchen, elegant library with fireplace, and a sunroom that opens to a sweeping veranda.
Lavish Master Turns Heads With A Dramatic Balcony And Spa
The lavishly appointed master suite is also one-of-a-kind. It features an exquisite spa bath that promotes wellness and relaxation with designer touches that exude a sense of calm.
We love the sitting area next to the free-standing bath. And guests will have their pick of six additional beds and baths, each with its own unique character and vibe.
A Wine Cellar, Home Gym, And Expansive Stone Terraces Are But A Few Of The Highlights
For the consummate host, there are expansive outdoor terraces for garden parties under the stars. Inside, cozy fireplaces and intimate formals allow for the perfect escape when it’s time for peace and quiet.
Additional highlights include a generous wine cellar, home gym, and three-car garage. Not one detail is amiss!
All Of This Sited In A Prime Greenwich Locale
Even better? The listing says, you can walk to town and schools. And Greenwich has some of the most sought-after private schools around!
Lastly, buying this home means owning a slice of architectural history. At 29 Hillside Road, pedigree, modern luxury, and a coveted Greenwich address combine into a meticulous estate that is built for those of discerning tastes.
