The palatial pad sits on over five sprawling acres in Greenwich, tucked away on a private country lane. Asking just shy of $9.7 million, the English manor-style home dates back to 1932 and has undergone significant updates since, including a slew of renovations in 2014 by its present owners. Altogether, the extensive spread comprises a 7,438-square-foot main house, a guest apartment above the garage, and a poolside cabana. There’s also a professional tennis court where former owner, Wojciech Fibak, and eight-time Grand Slam champ Ivan Lendl used to play—so you know it’s legit.
Inside, the brick-and-stucco abode is decked out with tons of period details like wood floors, high ceilings, preserved moldings, and decorative wainscoting. Other highlights include its four fireplaces, multiple patios, and arched doorways.
While nearly all the rooms are impressive, the study is definitely a showstopper with its fancy plaster tracery ceiling. Elsewhere, the first floor holds formal living and dining rooms, a spacious family room with a bar, and a large chef’s kitchen. The latter feels super bright and airy thanks to all-white cabinets and countertops, and nearby is a beautifully detailed breakfast nook with parquet floors. The second floor is where you’ll find all six bedrooms, with the primary suite occupying its own private wing with a sitting room, a cozy fireplace, a dressing room, and dual baths.
The manicured grounds are tough to beat, designed by Southampton-based landscape architect Perry Guillott, while the charming pool house, entered via a wisteria-covered terrace that sports two hanging swings, boasts two baths, a kitchenette, and a game area.
