Steps from Long Island Sound, this new construction French Normandy manor, designed by Douglas VanderHorn, is a rare offering. Grayscale any exterior shot of this home and it could easily pass for centuries senior to its 2016 build date. A formal, dramatic front elevation, which begets a castle-like visage on approach from the estate's gated driveway, pleasantly contrasts a more subdued stucco-and-stone rear profile, accented with flared eaves and arched-top dormers. The home's authentic, old-world visage brilliantly reveals 9,200+ square feet of sophisticated, modern interior space accented by extensive architectural woodwork, fireplaces with Italian marble mantels and water views. The master suite is standout, boasting a balcony, Waterworks bath and fireplace with herringbone brick refractory. A lower level adds recreation, media and exercise rooms, a 1,000+ bottle wine cellar supporting the swoon-worthy chef's kitchen. Stone arches frame a covered patio with outdoor fireplace, leading to more than an acre of level grounds boasting a pool. On the business end of things, there's a three-vehicle heated garage and generator.
