Mott B. Schmidt had already designed distinctive homes for the Rockefellers, Vanderbilts and Astors when he turned his imaginative eye to the property at 200 Clapboard Ridge Road in Greenwich. One of the most significant properties in the Round Hill area, the six-bedroom Georgian Revival stands as a testament to the same designer who would later be tapped, at age 75, to create the Susan B. Wagner Wing of the New York City mayor\u2019s residence, Gracie Mansion.\u00a0 \u201cThe fineness of his craft and the keenness of his eye have left us with gifts of brick and mortar that seem to get better and better with each passing day,\u201d said renowned architect Robert A.M. Stern, dean of the Yale School of Architecture, in a September 2006 issue of "The Modern Estate." Schmidt was credited with redefining how the America elite viewed their homes, building them splendid estates that were also utilitarian, according to the \u201cThe Modern Estate,\u201d which chronicled 200 Clapboard Ridge\u2019s painstaking renovation by award-winning Allan Greenberg Architect, LLC. Originally built in 1934, the five-bedroom, eight-bathroom house underwent repairs and renovation to accommodate another owner\u2019s family needs. Using the home\u2019s original blueprints, Greenberg updated the home while preserving its bones. The homeowners created a major addition in 2015 and redecorated in 2019 to present a chic, modern look, said listing agent Janet K. Milligan of Sotheby\u2019s International Realty. \u201cA fabulous pool pavilion was added as well with a kitchenette, bath, changing rooms, fireplace,\u201d she said. The home\u2019s exterior still \u201creads Schmidt,\u201d according to The Modern Estate, which notes the home\u2019s classic Georgian central block and side wings, as well as the roof cornice with modillions. The interiors boast ornate door-framing moldings and two floating staircases, a signature Schmidt detail. This house is on the market for $17,000,000. For details contact Janet K.
