This was my favorite among the open houses that I toured today…listed for $23,500,000 it is located on Taconic #429 – on nearly 13 acres of property that the owners had sited and leveled on three flat tiers. It also abuts conservancy, and there are riding trails surrounding the entire area.
The home itself is impeccable – (and so are the stables, which we toured as well), having been built a year and a half ago. There is a beautiful garage apartment for the hands, an indoor facility with artificial sand (dust-free and kind on their joints). It is truly state of the art.
The interior is understated, calming neutral tones and built with the latest materials. It is heated and cooled with geothermal.
The interior is scaled with large open space – calming neutral tones and beautiful wood everywhere

This is where we hung out with a few friends

Another home that I toured today in this price range, $25,000,000 – 218 Clapboard Ridge Rd – An English Manor set on over 5 acres – over 13000 SF of living – a wine cellar, theater, formal appointments throughout….

There is a buyer for every property – when looking at these two, it doesn’t begin to add up for me. Hands down, Taconic would get my vote for someone wanting to spend $20M+, but they may not like the idea of a pristine horse property, with a 15 minute commute to town set privately on 13 acres, with a gorgeous swimming pool and easy living.
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!
