The home at 33 John Street in Greenwich, Connecticut graces the cover of the Spring/Summer issue of Elliman Magazine, out now. But, there’s so much more to this house than what you can see from the outside. So, we’re opening the doors to give you an inside look at this stately yet inviting property.
Beyond the front gates and cobblestone driveway, you enter the columned exterior portico reflective of the home’s Georgian architecture. The large double doors with half-round transom and sidelights bring natural light into the entryway and welcome you to the contemporary interior.
Having built or renovated 14 homes over the years, the current owners made sure no detail was overlooked when designing the home.
The Living Spaces
Custom built in 2011 with approximately 12,300 square feet, this home features 9 bedrooms and 14 bathrooms. The living spaces are light and airy, and drenched in sunlight. The spacious chef’s kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances is ready for entertaining.
There’s a spectacular room that the current owners call “the lodge.” This room stands out in an otherwise formal home for it’s antique wood accents and oversize stone hearth. “All the wood comes from three different antique barns. One of the pieces supposedly came from a tree that was hundreds of years old,” Leahy tells us. Pull out the couches for the ultimate sleepover party, or empty the room to entertain 100 people by candlelight.
The Master Suite
The master suite offers a restful retreat. While the master bathroom features every amenity a discerning buyer could want. The expansive room includes a well-lit vanity with marble countertops, large windows to let in natural light, and a two-story his-and-hers closet.
The home is complete with a lower-level gym, playroom, beauty salon and massage room.
To wrap-up the tour, we’ll end in the backyard where you can truly appreciate the beauty of this property. Set on 5.7 acres, the pool, terrace, outdoor kitchen and fireplace overlook a lake. Footbridge access leads to your own private island where you could host plenty of summer parties. And, let’s not forget the guesthouse and 7-car garage.
33 John Street is currently on the market for $15,250,000.
