With perks galore There are plenty of historic real estate listings in Connecticut, from 17th-century barns turned homes to grand estates on 320 acres. Today?s home is a breath of fresh air?a modern five bedroom, nine-bath new build that is a new take on Greenwich architectural style.
Designed by architect Nicholas Karytinos of Tacet Creations with interior work by Claire Maestroni and Giorgio Stegano of Voce Di, the 9,800-square-foot home was inspired by a blend of Belgian and Japanese farmhouse elements. The facade was built with black Belgian granite, Brazilian Garapa wood, and a zinc roof with steep sloping lines. Inside, an open layout merges the living area with a black kitchen and dining room, and the home mixes stone, metal, glass, and hardware with reclaimed French plank wood flooring. An all-white sculptural staircase sits adjacent to a sitting room with retractable walls, and multiple fireplaces add coziness to the minimalist spaces.
Other perks include a 1.79-acre lot, a wine cellar, outdoor kitchen, an infinity-edge pool, outdoor shower, and guest house. Love what you see" 34 Beechcroft Road is on the market now for $8,495,000.
