Dating from the late 1800s and early 1900s, this majestic Greenwich home, originally known as Braehead, was designed in a variety of architectural styles as a suburban men's camp for active New Yorkers. After a thorough renovation, which included a new wing and an addition, the only remaining original elements are a double-height living room, an adjoining game room, a dining room and a paneled foyer.

The homeowners sought to create new spaces for their family as well as an additional private guest wing. The main section of the house contains the family bedrooms, an office, a master suite and the game room. The new wing, featuring two garage bays flanking a porte cochere (which provides access to a separate carriage house in back), contains a guest suite on the second floor. At the rear of the house, the family room addition has a spacious lower level with an exercise area, staff bedroom and a boot room. Since the addition sits at a right angle to the main structure, two walls enclose a private terrace. The design of the house is now strongly Georgian Revival.
