    North of NYC North of NYC By Houlihan Lawrence By Houlihan Lawrence by

    Set on a 5.85 acre hilltop in one of Connecticut's most picturesque towns, Hillcrest is a magnificent opportunity to complete a 25,000 square foot mansion custom-built to the highest standard of luxury. From its roots as a Gilded Age summer colony for wealthy New Yorkers, this particular corner of northern Fairfield County has a rich legacy of grand-scale estates, seamlessly woven into a lively suburban community as idyllic and pretense-free as they come.

    This regal custom residence has been thoughtfully designed for formal entertaining and casual everyday living, framed with bucolic grounds, 50 mile views and spectacular sunsets. You'll find regally-scaled formal rooms, eight fireplaces, a handsome library and a billiards room opening to a dramatic great room, all of which await its first residents' finishing touches. A second floor master suite is accompanied by four suite bedrooms, a two bedroom guest suite and a caretaker's apartment. Downstairs, a lower level adds an exercise room, wine cellar and vault, along with a home theater and kitchenette.
