9 OAKLEY LANE – GREENWICH – $10,950,000 – CLICK TO SEE LISTING
Beautiful large paned windows, soothing fawn wood color, fantastic stairway to the upper level, and I loved the honed marble entrance and choices of marbles for the baths.
Another Silver Properties / Granoff Architect property – same team as 49 Byfield in my previous post. Same MO with the raw flooring on the lower level. I asked if the price included any lower level finishes, and the builder answered that it would be part of the negotiation.
I get that the wine cellar may not be for everyone, and someone might want a major gym rather than a theater (both of which depreciate quickly – since tech changes with the wind). At least carpet floor to show the property after the initial introduction to market. It’s like going to an interview with impeccable credentials, but choosing to show up wearing the jacket without the pants or vice versa.
9 Oakley is nicely sited on an oversized lot. It’s only competition for new construction in this range might be 5 Brynwood Lane – but it is sited too closely to Round Hill which prevents a gracious entrance to the property.
