Hobby Horse Farm ranks among the most remarkable and historic homesites in Greenwich. Built of stone, shingle and style, the 11,000-square-foot Colonial manse radiates a demure elegance through the coalescence of modernity and the home's original c.1840 construction. A gourmet kitchen with wide plank floors, mortared stonewalls and barn wood beams juxtaposes cutting edge appliances—dual Sub-Zeros paneled with watercolor scenes of the English countryside are a standout—opening to double-story breakfast and family rooms. A five-room carriage house provides three garage bays, while a neighboring barn adds an exercise space and a gymnasium loft space that's as fit for yoga mats as shooting hoops. elsewhere across the property, you'll find a serene pond, horse paddock, gleaming gardens and a heating pool.
For the rest of the story behind this storied estate, we'll turn it over to the people who know it best:
