Greenwich Farm Estate
This historic 1926 farm estate located in Greenwich, Connecticut designed by Charles Bowman is set on over 75 acres of land. The Elizibethan-inspired Tudor boats over 15,000 sq ft of interior space. (ABOVE) At the end of a long, formal driveway you are greeted by a gorgeous home! I love the mix of wood, brick, and stone as the home's exterior materials. The landscaping is also perfection. Tailored hedges and flowers gives the home's exterior grounds much life. (BELOW 1) The chimney is the focal point of the roof. What a bold construction element! (BELOW 2) The flowers soften the rigid stone facade. (BELOW 3) The hedge maze is a classic landscape design element for home's in this style. The palm tree in the center of the maze however, is a surprise! (BELOW 4) The clean cut grass and deep green leaves are wonderful. I would love to be sitting on the lawn, soaking in the views, right about now! (BELOW 5) The tennis court features a small cottage to store equipment and such. What a great structure! (BELOW 6) I love this outdoor chess table, very sculptural! Just the perfect amount of surprise for the home's exterior grounds. What do you think of this Greenwich farm estate?
