This 10,000sf house is very traditional in style. It reads a bit too Fifth Avenue (decorated by Charlotte Moss) for our taste as a summer house, but if that's what you want, this is a great choice. The kitchen is rather lovely (love the green) and sports two wine fridges; there's a breakfast area there, a dining room adjacent, and a dining terrace off that. The den is cozy, with a stone fireplace and library shelving. There are seven bedrooms and 8.5 bathrooms in all, with a gym off one bedroom. Of course there's a gunite pool and poolhouse with kitchenette on the 2.2 acres of land, but no tennis court. All in all, the asking price of $9.95M is pretty reasonable: that's a decent chunk of land for the price and the house is quite large and appealing.
