From its vantage point 40 feet above mean high water, the estate is graced with panoramic vistas of Long Island Sound. Located a short five minute drive off the main Interstate-95 highway, Copper Beech Farm is situated next to Mead Point, a private association with some of Greenwich's most prominent estates. Handsome gates open to a 1,800-foot-long tree-lined driveway with impressive cobblestone gutters leading to the main house. Copper Beech Farm is replete with 75-foot-long heated pool with a hot tub, a grass tennis court, an octagonal pool house, a carriage house, an apple orchard, two greenhouses, and a gatehouse. The magnificent formal gardens are maintained by a former horticulturalist of the New York Botanical Gardens.

The Offering The land is owned in two parcelsa 20-acre property and a 30-acre property. Of the propertys 50.6 acres, 45 acres are designated under Connecticuts Public Act 490, which encourages the preservation of farm, forest and open space land in the public interest. This statute allows the property to be taxed at its current use value rather than the fair market value. Independent appraisals have valued the combined property at well over US$200 million.

The Manor House The Neo-French Renaissance manor house was built in 1896 and has been meticulously maintained. The home includes 12 bedrooms, nine bathrooms and 10 fireplaces. Massive stone towers bracket the entrance to the paneled center hall with a wide staircase rising three stories.

The residence spans 15,000 square feet of living space, along with an additional 7,000 square feet of basement and attic space. A spacious dining room with an elaborate ceiling, a solarium, and an elevator that connects the three floors grace the main house. On the second floor, a glass door leads to a front balcony with exceptional views. The lower level includes the original staff kitchen with a dumb waiter, sitting room, wine cellar, and laundry facilities. The third floor has a staff wing plus stairs to an enormous top floor that could be converted to many uses.

Provenance The Lauder Greenway family, co-founders of U.S. Steel with Andrew Carnegie, moved into the 19thCentury home in 1904. It has since served as a weekend retreat by the current owners who acquired the landmark estate in the 1980s. Copper Beech Farm is the largest waterfront parcel to come on the market in Greenwich for more than a half century. The estate is named after the large copper beech trees on the property.
