GREENWICH, Conn. -- Douglas Elliman agent Scott Elwell says his listing at 586 Round HIll Road in Greenwich has all the “bells and whistles” a homeowner might want.
What sets the 9-bedroom, 11-bath home apart, according to Elwell, is an efficient, easy and natural flow that connects the house from room to room and level to level. The property includes four acres, and the house has more than 10,000 square feet of living space. It is offered for $12,995,000.
“The master suite is on the first floor and has easy access to the front door, the kitchen, living area, garage and office,’’ said Elwell, a member of Elliman’s Fieldstone Group in Greenwich.. “You don’t have to walk through 14 rooms that are the size of an auditorium. It’s well proportioned and fits really well together.”
Five en suite bedrooms fill out the second floor, and Elwell termed the third floor a “kids mecca.” There are two bathrooms, two bunk rooms and a playroom. Rooms for adults are also set aside on the lower level, including a wet bar, ventilated card room, wine cellar, exercise and massage rooms.
“The lifestyle of the owner in this house is not cumbersome,’’ Elwell said. “It’s not a problem to have the family come visit. I see it as a compound. It’s a perfect location, and it could even be a second home for someone coming up from the city. If you’re looking at the Hamptons or something in the Berkshires, this home is a lot closer to Manhattan.”
The property also includes a pool, lighted tennis court and five-car garage with three lifts. There is also an elevator, whole house generator and two magnificent porches with fireplaces.
The entire house and property screams opulence, yet retains a sense of charm and subtlety. “This is not built as some castle, and was by no means built to make a statement,’’ Elwell said. “It’s a pleasant home. It’s set back behind a gate and private, but it’s built to be enjoyed by the homeowner.”
The home was designed by architect Sam Mitchell and constructed by Nordic Custom Builders in 2009. The 11-foot ceilings, wide-plank floors and hand-crafted millwork provide next-level detail and craftsmanship.
“The quality is going to surprise potential buyers,’’ Elwell said. “This was not a spec home, not a home that was built to be flipped. It was somebody’s residence. No corner was cut here. This is a very livable, shingle-style getaway.”
