This elegant waterfront residence in Greenwich’s prestigious guard-gated Mead Point community places a premium on privacy and discretion. Two impeccably landscaped acres stretch to the Long Island Sound shoreline, highlighted by impressive formal gardens: a floral scent garden, a Moroccan garden, a Zen garden screened by sculpted hornbeams, a parterre, and a cactus garden. There is also a vegetable garden with a greenhouse as well as beehives. Centered on a decorative rill, a terrace with a veranda and an outdoor fireplace leads to the 72-foot infinity-edge swimming pool with a pool house. Screened by trees, a fire pit gazes toward the private dock. The entire property can be surveyed from the rooftop hot tub.

The grandeur of the grounds is matched by the majesty of the six-bedroom, seven-bathroom residence. Impressively scaled at more than 11,000 square feet, the home has classic architecture that showcases uniquely elaborate ornamentation inspired by the Royal Mansour Marrakech hotel in Morocco—including Afrormosia wood doors with lattice-like carving and a striking tracery ceiling. The formal spaces include a handsome wood-paneled library, a stone-clad dining room, a family room with a soaring mansard ceiling, a glass conservatory, and two offices. The chef’s kitchen features an island, a butler’s pantry, and an airy, sun-filled breakfast room.
Each of the six bedrooms has its own aesthetic motif—and most have views of the sparkling waters. The primary suite has suede walls, opens to a waterfront balcony, and offers two walk-in closets, one with a staircase to an upper level. The walk-out lower level has an exceptional climate-controlled wine cellar, a game room, a woodshop, a second family room, and a glassed-in gym. The full bath has a steamshower and a dry sauna. There are three attached garage bays, including an extra space with a lift. This is a glorious waterfront property in a wonderful location close to downtown Greenwich.
