    Few things in life compare to the intimate and personalized feeling of entering a custom home, but ground-up construction can sometimes be arduous task demanding of thought, attention, and the ultimate luxury: time. For many seeking bespoke luxury on a schedule, jumping in mid-construction is a logical compromise, sparing the buyer the brunt of the legwork associated with building a new home while still offering the chance to add finishing touches uniquely their own. Our current portfolio includes a handful of such offerings in Westchester, Fairfield and beyond, in varied stages of production between approved site plans to smoothly in the home stretch. Here are some current highlights:

    GREENWICH | 26 Richmond Hill Road | $6,950,000

A two-story entrance hall reveals an exciting floor plan that includes a sun-drenched library; second floor master suite with his/her baths, walk-in closets and an office; five en-suite bedrooms; a 3,000 square foot walk-out lower level with approved seventh bedroom suite, and is elevator and generator ready.
