A long circular drive bordered by stone walls and extensive landscape leads to the formal gated entry and porte-cochere.  Designed by famed architect James C. Green, for descendent and namesake of Greenwich’s Revolutionary War hero General Israel Putnam, “Freestone Castle”, as it was originally known, has the mellowed atmosphere of a genuine English country estate.

Built in 1913, this 20,000 square foot masterpiece of fieldstone, brick and slate has been meticulously renovated and updated for today’s lifestyle, all the while incorporating its historic and period detailing.  The “main residence” is an impressive and deceptively bright, open and airy 13,500 square foot 8 bedroom domicile received by a grand foyer with sweeping double staircase leading to a cavernous wine cellar, formal living room, library and banquet-sized dining room, accented by custom iron work, oak paneling and intricately carved limestone mantels.  Large eat-in gourmet kitchen, family room, tea room, music room, media room, offices and playrooms complete the nucleus of this stone English manor.

Elegantly sited upon the highest point of its 4.18 acres of artfully designed and beautifully cultivated pristine formal gardens, balustraded terraces overlook reflecting pool, fountain, broad lawns, mature trees and other specimen plantings.  Additional extensive terracing and covered veranda complement outdoor living spaces easily accessible from numerous formal and informal interior rooms.

Incredible flexibility for multigenerational living or combined work environment incorporating 2 (two) additional attached +/- 3,400 square foot, 3-4 bedroom staff quarters/apartments/carriage house.  Explore all conceivable options as this property had previously been approved for the condominiumizaton of 4 units.

Truly a unique opportunity to live, work, play in Greenwich’s largest castle complete with all-weather tennis court, garages for 5-cars and rear court for large scale entertaining.  Located in “Edgewood Park”, just minutes from downtown Greenwich. $9,850,000
