An original cider house was transformed into a whimsical playhouse at Trade Winds, a 9.86-acre Old Field Village estate with a 415-foot sandy Long Island Sound beach. The asking price for the property is $9.288 million.
The playhouse is one of seven structures on the sprawling property, where a 6,500-square-foot Mediterranean-style home, built around 1910 for Pittsburgh industrialist James Barr, is the centerpiece.
The five-bedroom, 6 ½-bath home with water views throughout has a living room with a fireplace and French doors to a brick patio. A butler’s pantry off the dining room boasts leaded glass cabinetry. Kitchen amenities include granite surfaces, a Sub-Zero refrigerator and a six-burner Viking cooktop.
All five bedrooms are en suite and the master suite has garden views and a full bath with gold fixtures, marble floors and onyx surfaces.
The three-bedroom, 2 ½-bath guest house has a living room with a fireplace and a screened-in porch. A carriage house with a three-car garage includes a two-bedroom apartment. There is a greenhouse, barn workshop and pool house.
The grounds include an in-ground gunite pool and spa, specimen plantings and a formal sunken garden.
