Greystone, Estate of the Day
Checking out the homes in Greenwich, Connecticut is almost like visiting a foreign land. It's hard to find another town as devoted to the idea of creating modern day castles. Today's selection is a compound in Conyers Farm. The fieldstone home was designed by New York architect Boris Baranovich and spans over 10,000 square feet. The six-bedroom home has a paneled library, formal dining room with an elaborate French mural and a family room next to the gourmet kitchen. The master suite has a fireplace, two dressing rooms and two baths. A must see is the giant television and media system neatly surrounded by flowered wallpaper and oil paintings in gilt frames. The grounds feature all the natural appurtenances on 14 acres. Rolling lawns, trees, orchards, tennis courts with a pavilion, a barn with a workshop, a staff cottage and a three-bedroom guest cottage. This home is listed at $17.9 million.
