This was the open house surprise yesterday. It has been on the market for as high as $18,500,000 and recently reduced to $12,900,000. What has to be highlighted is that this is an architectural treasure – designed by Warren Platner* (he also designed the original restaurant atop the World Trade Center). It sits beautifully on 4 acres – with total privacy, yet close to town. Nature is invited inside this home from every window. The photos do not include a gym that rivals Equinox – I’m not kidding, and a garage that has clear doors….The solarium is also unusual with ivy gracing a brick wall, a misting system and a peeked glass roof.
Because each room was designed with the furniture as an integral part of the life and art of this home, it is included in the selling price. Mr. Plattner also designed these pieces. Beautiful burl wood is everywhere, and varnished to perfection. Each room is a surprise…
The art of the deal transcends all businesses, and more so in real estate than in many other professions. For the client, it's often an emotional purchase or sale, rather than a simple commodity or luxury item. I make it my mission to have each side come to terms with a transaction that works for everyone. It's not always easy, but good things in life usually take effort - something from which I've never shied.
Licensed since 2009 as a real estate sales agent in CT & NY, I often work with clients on the border of both areas.
With sales and distribution experience for luxury designer products, and watching/reacting to the markets, my acumen for sales was established. Achieving success and contributing to the growth of many global apparel designer brands, such as Giorgio Armani and Paul Smith for over 20 years, it was time for a change. I wanted to explore another passion that would keep me in one location rather than traveling the globe.
Now I have the best of both worlds, a successful business as a fulfilling personal life. My husband and I have lived in back country Greenwich since 2003, where we enjoy easy access to great biking, hiking and golf. We love to ski and that's usually where our travel takes us.
Life is good in Greenwich!
