23 Khakum Wood Road, Greenwich, CT 06830
Craftsmanship from a bygone era, where scores of masons spent literally years in construction to create this masterpiece, is evident throughout this magnificent stone manor on 8.6 private and quiet acres in the sought after Khakum Wood Association with private security.
Designed by the legendary architect Harrie T. Lindeberg, this memorable center hall manor with a Ludowici roof is in the heart of mid country Round Hill. The peaceful lane is ideal for long walks or bicycling away from all traffic. The driveway sweeps into a walled courtyard and to the beautiful limestone front portico. The front-to-back English sitting hall has lovely plaster moldings, a marble fireplace and french doors to the expansive terrace. A broad, barrel ceiling hallway leads to the magnificent living room with an antique carved stone mantel over the fireplace and a beamed, chestnut cathedral ceiling. The generous panelled library has a fireplace and a bow window as does the memorable dining room. The pantry with glass paned cabinets opens to a sunny kitchen with lovely views adjoining the family room. The paneled billiards room with a fireplace and brick floor has french doors to the grounds. The master suite with a fireplace and three exposures has two dressing rooms and two bathrooms – one with a whirlpool tub and lovely teak parquet floors. There are six additional bedrooms, and the third-floor bedrooms have beautiful high, arched ceilings and three exposures
- a delightful surprise. There is a staff living area as well as an apartment above the four car garage. This unique property has the finest quality, masterful plasterwork, first growth random width floors, memorable hardware, mellow carved paneling and large scale leaded glass windows.
