Chateau Ridge

Marvelous gates open to the impressive driveway which curves into an allée of apple trees to the center courtyard bordered by remarkable boxwood hedge mazes that form traditional Renaissance Love Gardens inspired by chateaux in France – one maze leads to a pond and fountain; the other has a stone tea house amidst the boxwoods - the entire property is surrounded by 14-acres of Greenwich Land Trust property. This spectacular and inspired architecture is like no other in town, and the total five-year restoration means it is completely state-of-the-art.

The entrance hall opens into the beamed Great Hall which runs 91-feet from the magnificent living room to a marvelous dining room with frescoes, passing by the grand main stairway and the special circular stairway in a tower to the master suite and the third floor. The stunning Great Room, copied from a chapel at Mont Saint-Michelin France, rises 20-feet to a spectacular cobalt blue ceiling of the night sky with twinkling individual fiber-optic lights– it is unique and memorable. There are three exposures with tall windows bracketing the limestone fireplace and french doors to the garden. Across the hall is a beautiful step-down paneled room with antique paneling crafted by Grinling Gibbons whose carvings can be seen in St.Paul’s Cathedral in London. The superb dining room with a fireplace has a beamed ceiling and frescoed walls based on Andrea Mantegnas frescos in Italy from the 15th century. The breakfast room, with painted paneling, opens into the rustic country kitchen with a beamed wooden ceiling and direct access into the two-story family room with a large lime stone fireplace and french doors to the garden. A stairway leads to an upstairs media room. The master suite has an entrance from both main stairways – the bedroom is sumptuous, there is a paneled study, an oval sitting room with a fireplace and a balcony that overlooks the front gardens, and the piecè de résistance is the hall of mirrors, which is an extraordinary dressing room, while the master bathroom in onyx has a double steam shower. There are three additional bedrooms on this floor and a guest bedroom above on the third floor with its double height ceiling; the exercise room has a skylight, a sitting room with a steam room. The playroom is located on the lower level. There is a wing for staff with five bedrooms. There are two attached garages and five detached garages. In the gate house there is a luxurious guest house with a fireplace in the living room, two bedrooms and two bathrooms. There is also a two-story tennis house that has a fireplace, a new bathroom and a viewing balcony overlooking the court. A stone path leads to the most amazing pool in town with a stone grotto with a waterfall and pillars that go into the pool, and two chic changing rooms. The terrace opens to a double stairway that leads into a garden with a sun ray pattern set in the grass, inspired by Louis XIV, the Sun King in France, and there are antique gates imported from France as a central focus.
