Greenwich Deep-Water Estate, Estate of the Day
Most real estate agents know enough not to photograph a house when it is decorated for Christmas. It only works if you've got a picturesque snowy cabin to sell and think it will move during the season when our hearts our filled with cheer. But that's not all that seems off about this home in Greenwich, Connecticut. The good news is that it is situated perfectly with direct Long Island Sound views. The bad news is that this home appears to have been left back in the 1980s when it was built. Gilding, vertical blinds, mirrored walls and curious bits of abstract art give the impression of a home that is in need of being brought forward a decade or two. The home opens with bronze front doors and a two story foyer featuring a marble "waterfall" wall and a koi pond.Floor to ceiling glass walls showcase the view. The paneled library/media room has a viewing screen which emerges from the ceiling. The property includes a separate two-bedroom apartment, seaside pool, poolhouse and private beach. It is listed at $22 million.
