Description

Welcome to Bydale, a breathtaking 43-acre estate in the northwest corner of Greenwich Connecticut. It has been cherished by the same family for nearly a century and encompasses a magical setting with frontage on three roads; John Street, Bedford Road and Richmond Hill Road. Dating back to 1735, an incredibly charming 9 bedroom main house abounds with old world charm. The handsome Colonial boasts 5 fireplaces, wide-plank floors, a large living room with bay window, a grand dining room and a private beamed library. The expansive property features two ponds, a freeform swimming pool and a clay tennis court. Numerous outbuildings include a guest house where George Gershwin reportedly composed parts of An American In Paris, a second guest house and a caretaker's cottage. There is a large barn complex with recreation room, an office and a 3 bedroom apartment. The 43 acres are being offered as one parcel, with town approvals in place for an 8 lot subdivision. This truly is an unparalleled opportunity to own a piece of Greenwich history.
