Point of View, Estate of the Day
Greenwich, Connecticut has a new top listed real estate property. The market in the tony town is now crowned by Point of View, a six-bedroom waterfront estate on over four acres with views overlooking Long Island Sound. The property also has a four-bedroom carriage house and the very unusual detail of a 175-foot suspension bridge that extends to a stone pier. The bridge was designed by John Roebling, the engineer who created the Brooklyn Bridge.
The home was built in 1903 and as listing pictures show, the home is full of the art of the former owners, the late Norman and Suzanne Hascoe. The Hascoes' collection of Czech modernist art, Old Master paintings and historic furniture will be auctioned off by Sotheby's early next year. The stone residences is on 340 feet of shoreline. Features include a 35-foot-high, marble-floored atrium gallery. A semi-circular, window-walled living room makes the most of the views and library/gallery spaces are arranged on the main and garden levels. Another truly amazing space is the natatorium/ballroom with an elaborate mosaic floor that lowers with the touch of a button to transform into the indoor swimming pool. This home is listed at $42.5 million.
