About the Home

Bydale is a breathtaking 43 acre estate which has been cherished by the same family for nearly a century. The magical setting encompasses frontage on Richmond Hill, John St and Bedford Road. Dating to 1735, an incredibly charming 9 bedroom main house abounds with old world charm. The handsome colonial boasts 5 FPs and wide plank floors with lovely formal rooms. The expansive property features 2 ponds, 2 swimming pools and a clay tennis court. Numerous out buildings incl a guest house where George Gershwin reportedly composed parts of “An American In Paris,” a second guest house, caretaker’s cottage and a barn with office and 3 room apt. The 43 acres are being offered as one parcel, with an approved 8 lot subdivision. Truly an unparalleled opportunity to own a piece of Greenwich history.
