Copper Beech Farm, Greenwich Connecticut

Touring Copper Beech Farm: A palatial Greenwich, Connecticut estate and Christie’s International Real Estate’s highest valued property listing at $190M

Enjoyed by the noted Lauder Greenway family from their purchase of it in 1904, this extraordinary Great Estate has no peers in Greenwich, as the second to last one was developed in 1954. There simply are no more in existence. This incomparable estate, 40 feet above mean high water, owns two islands and altogether they have a total of almost a mile of shorefront, amazing views, extraordinary walled gardens, unbelievable privacy, a 75 foot pool with a spa, a beach, a grass tennis court, a superb greenhouse, a stone carriage house and a cottage in a totally convenient and quiet location.

 

The 1800 foot driveway with beautiful cobblestone gutters winds through woods and lawns to the entrance. Two remarkable stone towers bracket the front door and the upstairs balcony. The grand panelled entrance room and stairway rises three stories with a fireplace and goes front to back to the wonderful screened or glassed porch with open panoramas of Long Island Sound. The main rooms have 12 foot ceilings, including the living room with a beautiful carved fireplace and French doors to the huge solarium with a coffered ceiling with plaster detailing and three exposures, the panelled library with a fireplace, a huge bow window with curved glass and bookcases, and the dining room with a fireplace, a tracery ceiling and paneling in rich oak with columns. It adjoins the kitchen and a wing with an enormous skylight, as well as the long oval family room with a fireplace and a large bow window.
