Dream Home

This is my dream home... and it's for sale!  I stumbled across the place while reading an article on Yahoo! about houses with unique indoor pools.  The address is 309 Taconic Rd, Greenwich, CT, the house is 26,000 sq. ft. while the lot is 914,760 sq ft and it costs $15,950,000 (they lowered it from $17 mil a couple months ago).  Chump change.

I decided to document the photos here because A. I wanted to show you all this beautiful home, and B. I wanted to remember what it looked like when I'm designing my lovely estate home some day (and it WILL happen, folks, just takes time and patience).

Some foyer, huh.

 French country kitchen with a wood burning oven for all your pizza making needs.

Theater Room: Of all the giant homes in all the world, I had to come across this one...

Dining Room.  I prefer a deeper red on the walls, as well as a smaller fireplace... I would trip and fall into that one!

 This is the kind of "country" chic style I prefer.

The main reason I fell in love with the place: a large 2 (well, 1 and a half) story library.  

Plenty of room to grow your own vegetables and herbs.

Wine Cellar and Tasting Room.  Nuff said. 

Gated (obviously) and mature trees!

 1920's style elevator-- I feel like I'm in an episode of Poirot (kudos to you if you get that reference).

 Replace the billiard table with air hockey and we're set. And again with the dangerously HUGE fireplace...

Stunning landscapes.

And finally: the pool.  Now you know why I had to see the rest of the place.

If you're a millionaire in need of a home and you've stumbled across my blog, look this place up on Trulia.  And if you buy it: please invite me over for dinner as a thank-you.
