Pemberly, Estate of the Day
Pemberly, an estate on four acres in New Canaan, Connecticut, may look old but it's brand spanking new. This estate which was styled on the lines of an English country estate has older details such as Flemish bond brick and stone chimney stacks and the Welsh Pengrid slate roof. The home boasts many hand carved and curved antique timbers and offers storage for those who are fans of wine and literature: there is a two-story, 5,000 volume library and a wine cellar suite which holds 5,000 bottles. The master suite has a Juliet balcony, surround sound theater and secret library access. The great room has church-like architecture including soaring arches, a forty foot ceiling, massive fireplace and a minstrel's balcony. The home is listed at $12.5 million. After the jump, a few shots but not a lot of good interior looks at this intriguing home.
