One of Greenwich, Connecticut’s most exclusive estates, a 1918 Elizabethan-style manor house on 40 acres on famed Round Hill Road, has been listed for sale via Christie’s International Real Estate for $42.9 million. The 14-bedroom, 22,000-square-foot mansion is fronted by a graveled entrance courtyard with a 70-foot centre marble reflecting pool and fountain.
The massive front door opens into a marble vestibule and then into the amazing Great Hall with limestone walls and a travertine floor.

Designed to be the ultimate estate in Greenwich by the noted architect William Tubby with cost being no object, it was originally built as a devoted father’s gift to his newlywed daughter.
