Free log cabin with purchase of this beautiful colonial style home in Greenwich, Connecticut. Conyers Farm is a tract of land in Greenwich, near the New York-Connecticut border. Established by U.S. Steel founder Edmund C. Converse in 1904, the property represented the consolidation of 20 farms. Much of the land had long been uncultivated, but the farm became an important source of employment and food for Greenwich. The 1,481-acre (599 ha) site was unoccupied for 15 years after Converse’s death. Conyers Farm was repurposed for luxury home development in the 1980s and several celebrities have owned property there since that time.
Description: “Exquisitely Subtle, Fabulous 16 Acre Estate in Conyers Farm. Handsome south facing Georgian renovated and decorated to an amazing standard on a truly quiet, superbly landscaped property with an inviting heated pool, a relaxing spa with a waterfall, a beautiful garage apartment, and a totally romantic log cabin guest house in a hidden setting.
Handsome gates open to the memorable, long winding driveway and the courtyard, both paved in stone. At the entrance is a wide portico sheltering the glorious front door with a delicate leaded glass fanlight and sidelights opening to the panelled front-to-back center hall with a glorious curving stairway, antique marble floors and exceptional carved entablatures over superb and memorable mahogany doors. The grand living room has a subtle barrel ceiling, a fireplace, two bay windows with window seats, glorious antique wide board floors which continue through the house, and french doors opening to a wide and deep verandah with ample space for relaxing or entertaining. The gracious formal dining room has a fireplace and glass fronted display cabinets and the richly panelled library with a fireplace has a sunny bay window, bookcases and a wet bar.
The spectacular kitchen opens to a two story solarium for casual dining and to the huge two story family room with a fireplace, floor to ceiling glass in the south facing gable, ample bookcases, and a large aquarium, plus there is an office, a mudroom, and one of several laundry rooms. Upstairs is a sumptuous master suite with a fireplace in the sitting room with a bay window, a second bay window in the sun filled bedroom, a large dressing room, and a spectacular master bathroom with a memorable marble floor, a whirlpool tub, a huge steam shower, a dressing area and marvelous built-in cabinetry. There are four additional bedrooms with three lovely bathrooms, back stairs, and a third floor with one huge bedroom with a high vaulted ceiling, a second bedroom, a bathroom and an elaborate cedar room.
The lower level in venetian plaster has a spectacular mirrored and lighted étagère in the hall, a home theater, a large exercise room, a bathroom with a steam shower, a wine cellar, a hobby room, and all state-of-the-art equipment. The garage apartment above the five car garage has a sunny living/dining room, a kitchen, two bedrooms, a bathroom and a laundry. The magical and romantic log cabin is a hidden treasure worthy of a vacation spot in Aspen or Vermont, yet is on the property. It has a two story living room, a fireplace, a kitchenette, a bedroom, a bathroom, and two verandahs. The heated pool is spectacular with a hot tub, and the grounds are a delight.”
