23 Khakum Wood Rd

Price: $8,470,000


This stunning storybook property is set in the exquisite woodlands of the most prestigious enclave of mid-country Connecticut, off picturesque Round Hill. Designed by the Offices of Frederick Law Olmsted, creator of Central Park and Queens Park in London, Khakum Wood is reminiscent of Olmsted’s Manhattan centerpiece with a gently rolling landscape, two lakes, and homes perfectly positioned in harmony with the natural surroundings. Khakum Wood is just minutes from downtown Greenwich, schools, the parkway and highway. It’s transportive feeling makes it hard to believe that you are so close to shopping, restaurants and more.


A Norman French-style estate with a manor-born pedigree, this home was designed by celebrated American architect, Harrie T. Lindeberg evoking the very essence of elegance and sophistication, its timeless artistry is vividly on display at every turn throughout this property. Gracious and grand, the home is immersed in light and flowing with impressively scaled rooms, a pine cathedral ceiling and a unique and unusually large knotty pine paneled library. Details such as lead paned windows, a Ludovici tile roof, and splendid period hardware exemplify the architectural distinction of this rare pre-war masterpiece, and absolute treasure.
