House of the Day: Greenwich Home Is Waterfront Beauty

You can probably tell we're big on lakeside, tree-fringed homes. Well, this one has both, and then some.

This magnificent, $14.9 million, Tudor-inspired estate in Greenwich, Conn., boasts an 800-foot-long shoreline and private dock, and is also nestled within its own private forest of lush trees. In addition to 6 1/2 acres of immaculate greenery, you get stunning panoramas of Tweed Island and Long Island Sound. And that's just on the exterior.

Inside the Phelps Stokes-designed manor, you'll find 9,173 square feet of flawless detail, from the marble and limestone fireplaces, to the broad-leaded casement windows, to the exquisite triple French doors and soaring 12-foot ceilings. Its furnishings are a little too classic for our tastes, but we do love those chandeliers and the floor-to-ceiling bookshelves.

The nine-bedroom, eight-bathroom home also boasts a bay-windowed library, well-equipped kitchen with large butler's pantry and a top-floor terrace with views of the sound.

Lyn Stevens and FiFi Sheridan from Greenwich Fine Properties have the listing.
