Greenwich "Back-Country" Classic Horse Farm

HBRA-CT HOBI Award winner for Best Custom Home (in its class) Professional Builder Design Awards: Custom Home Silver Award

Project Description

This 11,000(+) square foot custom home was designed by Greenwich architect Paul Marchese in the Shingle Style, developed in the late 19th Century by architect Stanford White, a style primarily used as one of the great American ‘cottage’ styles by the wealthy who kept large estates and working farms as second country homes, many of which were located in Greenwich, CT. Built on a 13 acre working horse farm, complete with stable, indoor riding arena, grazing paddocks, run-in sheds and equipment garage with groom’s quarters, all the buildings were constructed as part of the same construction project. Mixing tradition with innovative technology, the wood-framed home features spray foam insulation and a geothermal heating and cooling system. It also contains (6) bedrooms with full baths, a private library, work-out studio, sauna, wine cellar, pool, indoor cabana and wet-bar, plus (2) separate laundry rooms, and (4) car garage.
