The Tudor-style six-bedroom home, dating back to the 1900s, has gone on sale for $11 million. Located on the pristine Long Island Sound near Rowayton, Connecticut it is a vast 3.5-acre property with a main house and three other buildings, a private beach and a swimming pool.
The picturesque mansion overlooks New York City while retaining ideal privacy and seclusion. The 6,100 square feet main home comprises six bedrooms, two offices, a gym and a steam room with its original colonial design from the early 1900s retained and restored.
It was built from local stone and is a sublime combination of archaic charm and modern luxury.
The stone fireplace is a beautiful accent in the spacious and ample living room flooded with natural light. Stone features prominently in the English mansion as evidenced by the heavy stone table in the dining room that overlooks the waters in the richly-appointed home. The kitchen is completely renovated with a large table, bar stools and state-of-the-art appliances.
The second floor houses the gym with exercise machines, weights and a horizontal bar. The master bedroom is breath-taking and comes with an attached study area and a long bay window. Its en-suit bathroom boasts two basins and a stone-walled shower.
Marketed by the Higgins Group real estate company, the island has everything for a simple, modern and comfortable life away from the big city including a caretaker’s cottage and an ample porch with stone columns. A pristine 25ftx75ft swimming pool is another one of the amenities it offers to make your stay memorable. Others include a boat house with a bedroom, bathroom and games room, and a Tea House with a meeting room and one further bedroom and a two-bedroom cottage.
Carefully-maintained lawns and stone gardens add to the charm of the magnificent property, which even comes with an open firepit and its very own antique cannon.
