An exceptional waterfront estate in Riverside, Connecticut with a nearly 10,000 square foot stone manor recently hit the market for $14.8 million. It was originally built in 2000 by renowned homebuilders Hobbs, Inc. and expanded in 2014 by Greenwich-based firm Douglas VanderHorn Architects. Outstanding quality of design and construction in all interior spaces, the main living quarters are light, bright and family-oriented with a large kitchen with adjacent built-in breakfast nook, a vaulted family room with large fireplace and formal living and dining rooms. Douglas VanderHorn discussed the 2014 expansion on his Houzz project page, “A thorough renovation was required to satisfy the client’s request for a new wood-panelled library with adjoining reading space. Raised butternut paneling and custom classical details were chosen to complement the existing Georgian residence.” In addition to the panelled library, a substantial conservatory by the British design firm Amdega is accessed through a set of French doors. Outfitted with stone and glass walls, a tiled floor and elegant chandeliers, the space takes in wonderful views over Cos Cob Harbor. There is nearly 10,000 square feet of interior space spread over three floors with seven bedrooms, eleven bathrooms and a widow’s walk overlooking the property and water. The grounds are lush with gardens by Peter Cummin and include numerous entertaining patios, a swimming pool & spa and private dock. This one-of-a-kind waterfront estate is on the market for $14.8 million with Lin Lavery of Coldwell Banker.
