This extraordinary traditional style home is located in Greenwich, Connecticut and it’s for sale. The property offers grandly scaled spaces with light-filled interiors and quality finishes, but this traditional house seems to be getting more facelifts than Heidi Montag; it was built in 2001, renovated in 2005, and updated in 2011, all with no expense spared.
This house has 15,000 Sq. Ft., six bedrooms, six full bathrooms and three half, intricate millwork, exotic hardwoods, imported fabrics, indoor/outdoor pools, tennis court, pool/tennis house, strolling gardens, fountain, and a spectacular master suite with 16×20 custom closet.
Take a look and let me know what you think!
The arial view of the house. Isn’t it beautiful?
This is one of the most elegant entrance I’ve seen in a while. The millwork is impeccable and the decor is kept to a minimum to balance the panelling.
The living room feels refreshed with modern furniture and a touch of turquoise (lamps).
Perfectly designed. It’s very elegant yet not overdone. The ceiling is incredible!
This classically designed kitchen has everything you can wish for. The dark stained floors bring some warmth to the space.
The island offers plenty of workspace. I love the arch to the butler’s pantry.
Beautiful furnishings, but what really gets your attention is the view and the chandelier.
I love the idea of having a family den, where the kids can use their computers and the parents can be around.
The millwork in this house is something we need to pay attention to.
This is a very delicate design. It’s tranquil yet not boring. Notice the unique design on the wainscoting panels.
The design on the floor mimics the “framed” mirror on the wall. A vanity is always a nice touch and I love the idea of having window-seats in the bathroom.
Do we need a settee and a chaise in a closet? Of course we do! After all, we can get tired on trying all the clothes, right?
Home Sweet Home
Grand and majestic.
Perfect to enjoy a sunny day with family and friends.
Sparkling and inviting.
The price tag? $17,500,000

What’s your favorite part of this house? I must say that I was very impressed with the millwork done in this place. It’s so well done, I’d love to see it personally.
This weekend was okay, but Matthew (my baby) and I are having a cold and we only remember how colds can take all of our energy when we’re having one, right? But again, it’s just a cold and it will go away soon.
On the positive side, Matthew turned 7 months yesterday! He really lights up our lives… 🙂
Talking about kids, I was thinking about my responsibility as a parent today and I realized how important it is for us to keep teaching our kids about respect. It seems we have lost that in great amounts in our society and I’m not talking only about kids. People are more aggressive nowadays, we see so many kids being bullied at schools, so many people that does not respect anyone.
I started analyzing it today and thought that whenever there’s lack of respect, there’s also lack of love, because without respect, love vanishes.
Love only survives with respect, and I’ll keep that in mind as I try to pass what respect really means to my kids.
Have a blessed week, my friends. I’m grateful you’re here today.

Hi he is 7 months…already? Wow, happy birthday to little Matthew!! So agree about respect too, soooo important.
Love this home, had seen it before and i think the millwork is outstanding…love the outdoor spaces too!
Hard to believe Matthew is already seven months, time flies so fast. You’re right about respect I see a lack of it daily. Thankfully in our home my husband still thanks me for doing laundry and everything else after over twenty years of marriage. His Mama raised him right!
i love to come home, toss my dirty from the garden shoes and fall into a cushy chair with my pooch…… i might have to behave a bit better in this house
if only more parents were like you dearest. just having a chat with a friend about how disrespectful children are to adults and to each other. then we began to chat about the same poor behavior from adults, no wonder their children misbehave.
and then there are families like yours and one knows not all is lost. happy 7 months matthew!
Can you just imagine the luxury and quiet elegance…………..I am ready at any time. Please send in the staff with the butler.
“palatial” is a word that comes to mind when I look at this house! Only 17.5 mils? Ah, to be rich!
The outdoor space in this home is breathtaking! I had a crush on a boy in college that lived in the house that The Great Gatsby was filmed in in Greenwich, CT. Every time he looked at me I got hives. It was pitiful. This could have been my house if I could have stayed rash free and married this boy. Ha!
The home is very impressive and the mill work is incredible, but I thought the home itself dwarfed the furnishings and didn’t feel the warmth or an invitation coming from the overall home…I might like the pool house better.
Luciane, you hit on a topic close to my heart. I watch with dismay a crack in the courtesy and kindness that I used to see in our society. I am determined to continue to be courteous and kind to my fellow man, no matter what. But its something we need to be mindful of and to continue the education of the young people in our lives.
As beautiful as this house is, you know my favorite part of the house is the tennis court! Your words of respect and love are so true – you and yours give me hope for the future! xoxo And to think Matthew is now 7 months and I have not held him in my arms yet! The truth is – I hold all 5 of you in my heart each and every day! XOXO
The millwork – incredible! I totally agree Luciane – respect is so critical and so overlooked in our culture – nicely said. Have a wonderful week!
My dear Luciane, I’ve been pouring through many of your older posts lately, you have found so many wonderful homes and written such great text, it’s a pleasure to read them more than once! This house in particular has stayed on my mind, that photo of the entrance hall and staircase and yes the millwork, is fabulous.
I’m writing (3 years after this was posted) to tell you how much I admire your attitude about being a mother and your children. Incredibly challenging work, but as a labor of love goes, worth every bit of energy you can put into it, every sacrifice, even the frustrations and the moments you might wonder how you’ll ever keep up or get enough rest! The rewards for the rest of your life will be knowing that you always did your best and you absolutely will see it in those dear children that you’re helping grow into wonderful and happy adults. Reading your comments about respect and love made the time here on your wonderful blog even better…and love you the blogger/author a bit more as well!
