When your name is practically synonymous with premium style, the expectations surrounding where you choose to live as well as how you choose to furnish the pad will naturally be high. Doubly so when you’ve previously invited Architectural Digest into your $70 million Central Park penthouse, which hosted the likes of Marilyn Monroe, The Beatles, and The Rolling Stones in the past. Suffice it to say, the former estate of fashion mogul Tommy Hilfiger located at 435-429 Round Hill Road, Greenwich certainly lives up to the standard set by himself and others.
This ionic Stonehill compound is situated on eight acres of lush Connecticut land, offering over 14,000 square feet distributed across three storeys. In addition to the 16 bedrooms, 14 bathrooms, and three gated entries, as you’d expect from both a property of this calibre and a man of Hilfiger’s reputation, the Greenwich estate in question is “outfitted with luxurious features of architectural note”, offering an entire array of resort-like amenities
Among the more expected elements, you have a sun-drenched master suite with a spa bath and dressing rooms, generous entertaining spaces, professionally-fitted kitchen showcasing all the latest appliances, wine cellar, fireplace, game room, world-class cinema, and pool + pool house.
Where Stonehill kicks it up a notch is in the gym with an indoor half-court, massage room, synthetic turf tennis court, dining area which can comfortably accommodate up to 40 guests, meticulously manicured gardens, and pleached linden tree-lined driveway. The grounds also include a four-bedroom guest house, three-bedroom cottage, and two-bedroom cottage.
“Impressive Georgian scale is woven throughout this unique and exquisite offering,” reads the official listing posted by Brian Milton on Compass.
“This private estate combines into a sophisticated living experience.”
