Round Hill Mansion in Greenwich, Connecticut, With Room for Dozens

Location: Greenwich, Connecticut

Price: $18,750,000

Usually the houses we find stateside that have been built in the English cottage style are just that, cottages. This one is a bit different. Despite the wood-over-stone construction, this Round Hill mansion in Greenwich, Connecticut, measures some 17,100-square-feet, enough for a dozen country cottages. The humble exterior architecture gives way to some extravagant interiors, with a double-height foyer with twin staircases, a vaulted living room, eight fireplaces, "hand-painted medallion floors, hand painted French wallpaper, embroidered silk-covered ceiling, rich lacquered walls, antique mirrors, and sterling silver hardware." Phew, that's a lot of pricey add-ons, but enough to justify a $19,000,000 price tag?
