This Gatsby-esque Greenwich Mansion Wants $8.25M



This Gatsby-esque Greenwich Mansion Wants $8.25M

Connecticut is a sociable state, stocked with homes seemingly purpose-built for entertaining, whether that means an al fresco fete on the pool terrace or a weekend-long house party in the country. So we challenged ourselves to feature for-sale homes with something beyond beautiful dining rooms, well-appointed kitchens and ensuite guest rooms. And as lovely as those amenities are, we found so much more.

This nearly 9,5000-square-foot Greenwich manse had us at hello: Its two-story entrance hall, equipped with a dramatic curved staircase and, currently, a harp, accommodates 100 guests. There’s an easy flow into a formal living room, a capacious dining hall and the open-plan kitchen with a butler’s pantry, with more dining options around the island and through French doors onto the expansive terrace.

The party continues on the lower level where even the thirstiest of guests will be sated: There’s a 640-bottle wine cellar that’s adjacent to a full bar with a handsome bar back and a fireplace. The lower level also offers a golf simulation room, a fitness center and access to the pool and terrace. The property is listed for $8.25 million with Robin Kencel of Douglas Elliman Real Estate.
