When I spotted this 1885 Victorian in the Connecticut real estate listings, it stopped me in my tracks. Wow. This Greenwich property has over 8,000 square feet and sits on a beautifully landscaped lawn “with water views.” The owners renovated it in 2000, and I’d love to see what it looked like before, when all of the woodwork was probably dark.
There’s definitely a light, beachy vibe here–something you don’t expect from an old Victorian.
The dining room light fixture looks a lot like the one in Sarah Jessica Parker’s Hamptons house, doesn’t it?
I think the curved wall in the kitchen with all of the big windows overlooking the water is lovely:
What do you think–do you like this updated Victorian? I’d love to see some more color on the exterior to make some of the details stand out.
It’s on the market for $14.5 million. There are 6 bedrooms, 6 baths, and 3 fireplaces in the house. More photos and information in the listing. Any takers?
