This Great Gatsby-worthy property is ready for a new landlord.
A castle-like mansion in Greenwich, Connecticut has hit the market for $39 million. The stunning 18,954-square-foot mansion may appear historic, but it was actually built in 2001.
The sprawling Georgian brick mansion is accessed via a cherry tree-lined driveway that leads to 8.23 ”park-like” acres. The grounds feature a 75 foot Haggerty mosaic floor heated gypsum pool, full bath pool house, fully equipped kitchen and ‘expansive’ stone patio to the entry.
There is also an outdoor kitchen with a pizza oven and three grills, a tennis court and a five car garage.
Inside, the home features eight bedrooms, nine full baths, and four halves. There are eight fireplaces throughout, an elevator, a dumbwaiter, a custom three-story chandelier, a lobby with hardwood floors, a custom sweeping staircase, and a beautiful two-story mahogany library with an upper gallery and French doors leading to a covered porch.
The master suite is located on the second floor of the north wing and features a private balcony and two radiant heated bathrooms, the first with a marble fireplace and mother-of-pearl shower and a morning kitchen. Up ‘a short flight of stairs’ there is a cloakroom and the second bathroom which has its own dressing room.
The lower level features an “entertainment oasis” with a 5,000+ bottle capacity wine cellar, home theater, game room, full bar and candy concession stand, mirrored dance studio, gym, full batting cage, laundry and weight rooms .
For those looking for an actual Connecticut castle and not just a castle-like property, there are currently two on the market: Also in Greenwich, Hemlock Castle, built in 1913, is currently searching for $11.8 million. Then, in the northeast of the state, a fairytale fortress built in 2010 is asking for $60 million.
