In one of the most exclusive suburbs in southern Connecticut lies a magnificent European-style brick chateau that has been listed by Cliff Smith and Todd David Miller of The Agency New Canaan for $15M. The mansion’s footprint of over 18,000 square feet sits on over six acres along a natural land preserve. The circular landscape architecture was designed by Doyle Herman Associates, who included beautiful terraces and fountains, a tennis court, a soccer field with lights, and a swimming pool that overlooks the swimmable pond, which is connected to Five Mile River, in their layout.
Everything about this multi-level seven-bedroom chateau is grandiose. The enormous entrance atrium is illuminated by an immense crystal chandelier, features two towering pillars, and is offset by a spiral staircase. To the left of the entryway, a music room leads to a sunken octagonal-shaped living area. Every detail of the interior design has been carefully crafted to cater to the elite lifestyle—from the vast marble barroom to the two-story library with glass bookshelves made in Germany to the sculptures and fine art intentionally placed throughout the home. The main floor also features a gym with a full spa-style bathroom, sauna, and an outdoor stainless-steel whirlpool. There is an au pair suite and a mudroom with a pet shower.
A spiral glass staircase leads further downstairs to a showpiece wine cellar, game room, theater room, and windows that offer an overview of the custom underground garage showroom that houses up to 24 collectible cars. Head up that same staircase past the main floor to the second story, and you’ll come upon the immaculate oval master suite with his and hers closets and a large sitting room. The home also features five large en suite bedrooms, nine full bathrooms, and four powder rooms, all with Porcelanosa tile and marble.
There is also just over 1,900 square feet of living space in the guesthouse. The estate has the best of both worlds, offering extreme privacy while on the property, but is also just a short 60 minutes from the hustle and bustle of New York City.
