Superb Lakeside Residence by Boris Baranovich in Greenwich

Designed by architect Boris Baranovich, this magnificent lakeside residence in Greenwich, Connecticut, is set on a 4.5-acre property close to a beautiful and peaceful body of fresh water. It was built using exquisite craftsmanship and only high-end materials. The current owners of the house worked closely with the architect to make sure that the end result would be exactly what they desired, and every single detailed was carefully planned.

This is a 21,000-square-foot mansion with 5 bedrooms, 11.5 bathrooms, 10-15 foot ceilings, ten beautiful fireplaces, and large, luminous living and entertaining spaces. For the majestic interiors, all materials and finishes were carefully chosen to emphasize the luxe character of the entire project. These included reclaimed timbers and floors, Venetian plaster walls, groin-vaulted plaster ceiling in the breakfast room, Ludowici tile roof, French doors, huge mahogany windows ornate iron railing, and an impressive 500 year-old door imported from the Far East.

Two ornamental iron gates welcome guests on the property that is situated at a cul-de-sac, some 6 miles north of town. The estate also includes a lovely pool house with fireplace, superb gardens with fig trees, lemon trees, perennials, seasonal vegetable, and different herbs, tennis and bocce-petanque courts, and a large heated pool. Built in 2005, this superb property is currently on the market at a little over $26 million.
