A new shingle style home in one of the most sought after enclaves in Greenwich was designed to capture the harbour views despite challenging grading and ecological constraints. The stone and shingle residence is the product of a talented team of designers and builders including Douglas VanderHorn Architects, Amy Aidinis Hirsch Interior Design and Significant Homes. Douglas VanderHorn Architects gave some insight on their project page, “The front porch opens into a grand panelled stair hall with rhythmic details and rich accents. The den gives an impression of comfort and splendour with stained cherry beams, shiplap wainscoting, and custom mantel paired with the deep blue v-groove ceiling. Classic detailing continues in formal rooms of the home as well as the master suite. Large windows and French doors take in a savoury amount of daylight and alluring water views.” The residence is both elegant and comfortable with classical details as well as rustic elements. There is a striking blue butler’s pantry, large gourmet kitchen with beamed ceiling and built-in breakfast bay, a family room with stone fireplace and two sets of French doors opening to a large porch with fireplace and a large formal dining room with French doors and fireplace. A 4,379 square foot 1970s shingle style home previously sat on the 1.25 acre waterfront lot. It had been on the market since 2009 for $10.5 million and eventually sold in 2015 for $8.2 million. Construction of the new 7,849 square foot shingle style home started in late-2016 and finished sometime in 2018. There are 7 bedrooms, 7.5 bathrooms and 1,260 square foot attic. Zillow estimates its value in excess of $12 million.
