Greenwich, the largest town on Connecticut’s “Gold Coast,” has long been a prominent stomping ground for America’s old wealth and hedge fund elites with waterfront homes regularly selling at $10 million or higher. But, while its Cos Cob and Old Greenwich neighborhoods provide plenty of high-end luxury real estate opportunities, they also offer a more affordable brand of elevated living for the upwardly mobile. Here is a look at what you’ll find on the market today for less than $3 million.
4 Bedrooms | 3.5 Bathrooms
An exquisite renovation of this mid-country colonial combines country charm with the sophisticated needs of today’s lifestyle. The high-end interiors feature custom mill work and finishes with a new open floor plan. An oversized center island and fireplace rest at the center of the home, around which friends and family will love to gather. French doors open onto a stone terrace overlooking the park-like grounds while indoors a lovely living room with fireplace, bay window and cozy study area beckons. The master bedroom suite includes a large walk-in closet, new marble bathroom, double vanity and soaking tub, down the hall from two additional family bedrooms, a new bath and separate laundry. A second staircase leads to another bedroom, bathroom and study with built -in shelving.
