Built in 1929, designed by noted New York architect William Tubby, the undeniably grand estate at 544 Oenoke Ridge in New Canaan, CT, is an icon of the state’s Great Estate era. With 18,000 interior square feet, a guest house, tennis court, and pool, and a newly-added 10,000-square-foot extension that includes a wellness center, this grand home is a country retreat for the ages. Asking $14,900,000–a record-breaking sum for the town–the limestone home, known as Orchard’s End, received a multi-million-dollar renovation in 2014, helmed by architect Dinyar Wadia.

The main residence extension includes a new kitchen, a great room, an outdoor courtyard, and a study. The breathtaking great room was inspired by the Castle Duart on the Scottish Isle of Mull, seen in the 1999 movie “Entrapment” starring Sean Connery and Catherina Zeta-Jones.

In contrast to the great room’s impossibly high wood-beamed ceilings, the formal living room is framed by a massive fireplace and ornate ceiling moldings. Bay windows offer intimate seating areas.

The kitchen is ready for epic entertaining (The Bidens held a fundraiser here in 2019 for Joe Biden’s presidential campaign). A massive butler’s pantry serves multiple seating areas. Stone worktops and state-of-the-art appliances need no updates.

A formal dining room and a study with a pool table provide more options. Interior spaces are wrapped by a sun-filled, glass-framed hallway that showcases the verdant grounds.

The private upstairs rooms comprise a sprawling, tranquil space with 12 bedrooms. A stunning primary suite has an elegant dressing room and a stone-clad bath with a fireplace.

On the home’s top floor is a family living space with a fully-stocked gym and a home theater. A play suite features a ball court, ping-pong table, and plenty of floor space.

Across the lawn, is another highlight: A charming guest house awaits. The property features a landscaped pool, tennis courts, a basketball court, and a garage large enough for a fleet of cars. The jewel of this amazing estate is a private wellness center.

The beautifully landscaped grounds offer endless rolling lawns, planted gardens, and stone patios. A secluded spot offers a fountain surrounded by trees. Stone paths wind through the landscape–an invitation to spend a day strolling the grounds.
