A home to host the holidays

LOCATION: Stamford, Conn.
PRICE: $75 million

An estate made to entertain has hit the market in time for the holiday season. The 262-acre property known as Hillandale, which listed about a week ago, stretches across the border of New York and Connecticut.

The main residence, a European-style manor with 23 rooms, was originally built in 1900. Extensive renovations brought the size to more than 20,000 square feet. “There are big, detailed rooms that feel intimate,” said listing agent Joseph Barbieri of Sotheby’s International Realty.

The house has eight bedrooms, ten full bathrooms and four partial bathrooms. The living and dining areas overlook the foliage-covered grounds. Italian mosaics surround the indoor swimming pool.

More than five miles of roads wind through the property. “The house looks down on Lake Susan, which has its own island,” said Barbieri. The property features a tennis court, a greenhouse and manicured lawns. There are four other buildings on the property, including a modern home with lake views.

“I think one thing that’s extraordinary is the setting of the property,” Barbieri said, noting the natural beauty of the grounds. “People are just mesmerized by the views.”
