LISTING OF THE DAY
Location: Greenwich, Connecticut
Price: $32.5 million
This 24-room mansion on 5.31 acres in central Greenwich features more than 16,000 interior square footage on four levels, a tennis court and an underground tunnel to a year-round pool house and indoor lap pool.
It was designed by the Greenwich-based architect Joeb Moore and built in 2008 by the current owners, listing agent Rob Johnson said. This is the first time it’s been on the market.
Mr. Moore is known for his modern houses, Mr. Johnson said. “This is a mix of modern and traditional—it’s a mix that blends very well.”
The stone house is built on the highest point in central Greenwich, so you can see Long Island Sound and Manhattan from the house, he added.
The quality of construction is “phenomenal,” Mr. Johnson said.
It’s all steel frame, with poured concrete floors, he said. The first floor has a grand entry hall, large-scale formal living and dining rooms, and a kitchen/family room with an adjacent office. A sun-filled hallway connects to the mudroom and four-car garage.
The fully equipped kitchen features onyx countertops and expansive metal-framed windows overlooking the rear gardens. Pocket doors can be closed to screen the catering areas for more formal entertaining.
The second-floor primary suite has a large deck, a seating area with a fireplace and dual bathrooms and walk-in closets. There are four more en-suite bedrooms on this floor, along with an oversized laundry area.
The third floor holds another bedroom suite that could be used as another office and a billiards room/entertaining area with views of the Sound and Manhattan.
The kitchen and primary bedroom suite also have water and city views, Mr. Johnson said.
Other architectural and design details of the seven-bedroom home include nine- and 10-foot ceilings, white oak and limestone floors, front and back staircases, three chimneys, skylights, extensive millwork, built-in bookcases and beamed ceilings.
The modern glass-walled pool house has a lap pool, a dining area with a fireplace, electronic shades and glass doors that can be fully opened to the garden.
The 16,359-square-foot house has seven bedrooms, nine full bathrooms and one partial bathroom. It sits on a 5.31-acre lot.
Amenities In addition to the indoor lap pool and year-round pool house, amenities include a tennis court, seven fireplaces, central air conditioning, a four-car garage, a third-floor billiards room with a bar, a long gated and tree-lined gravel driveway, and extensive gardens and landscaped grounds with fruit trees.
The lower level of the house holds a media room, a large gym with natural light, a library and a connecting underground tunnel to the pool house.
Mr. Johnson said that the home is located a seven- or eight-minute drive to downtown Greenwich and the Greenwich train station, which has commuter trains into Manhattan’s Grand Central Terminal.
“Because it’s centrally located, all options for public and private schools are nearby,” Mr. Johnson said. Golf, racquet and country clubs are also close to the house.
