The two acres of land in this Gin Lane estate have been beautifully designed with fountains, stonework, enchanting secret areas, rolling lawns and foaming hydrangeas. Of course there's also a lovely pool surrounded by brick pavers (why not stone?) and a tennis court. The covered porch and the summerhouse have similar bell roofs, as does the ceiling of the master bedroom.
The house, built in 2002, is a gambrel style. It's spacious at 7500 square feet, with nine bedrooms, nine baths and two half baths, a staff wing, and a two-car garage. The interiors are very traditional; nice features include a large fireplace by the kitchen dining area and a paneled library. The house would suit a much more simple, modern style of interiors. $21M, the asking price, is not out of line; the property isn't oceanfront, but of course Gin Lane is a very prestigious address.
