Country Life House in Khakum Wood
This estate comes from a unique collaboration between Country Life Magazine and the Real Estate Board of Greenwich to feature modern estate living in 1928.
“Brae-Tarn” is the first home built in the private and prestigious Association of Khakum Wood, located in the heart of Greenwich,CT. The renown firm of Isaac Phelps Stokes created the architecture and the landscape design firm of Frederick Law Olmsted planned out the 150-acre Association.
The next buyer has the opportunity to renovate this magnificent home and property to make it the trendsetter for the next 100 years. This 5 bedroom 7 1/2 bath home with cottage and Olympic size pool sits on 4.14 acres (2 lots) overlooking Khakum lake in the back.
Newly listed for $6,595,000.
“The house exudes a certain 1920s-era glamour, including dormer windows, hand-hewn timber trim, a dramatic staircase lined with oak and a cozy library. There are also some eccentricities, such as the installation of 15 bathrooms, an oddity that no one seems able to explain.” – The Greenwich Time

“The district, designed in the traditional image of the ideal American suburb – defined by winding drives and carefully placed houses screened by informal plantings – owes a direct debt to the Olmsted concept of civilized living.” – Historical Society of Greenwich
