While the entire residence is spectacular, perhaps the most interesting space is the custom kitchen. “I didn’t want a true greenhouse because I knew it would be very hot, and I didn’t want to be preparing meals and cooking in that heat,” Joan told Traditional Home, “But I was intrigued with the idea of a space within a space, and that’s how the greenhouse ceiling evolved.” The space includes details such as a 6 foot wide La Cornue range, a barrel arched glass ceiling and a 5 foot x 10 foot central island made of walnut and burled walnut veneers. The project was the recipient of two awards, AIA/CT Alice Washburn Award 2011 and Kitchen: 2010 A-List Award Winner: Kitchen AtHome Magazine. The grounds include a Michael Greenberg designed and built cabana with Samuel Heath shower and tennis viewing area, an outdoor fireplace, limestone patios and a 16 foot x 20 foot organic garden. This unique property is on the market for $6.5 million with Faith Schachne of William Raveis Real Estate. Photography by John Bessler.
