Peter Brant’s sister, Irene Brant Zelinsky, is selling her Greenwich, Conn., home after inheriting a nearby house from her mother. The property was developed by the family back in the 1980s and is asking $5.5 million.

“I had a good collection of Federal furniture,” Zelinsky told Bloomberg. “So my brother said to hire Allan Greenberg,” the historical architect known for designing the Treaty Room Suite at the U.S. Department of State. “And he came in and designed the house in an authentic Federal style.”

 

The 6,100-square-foot house was built by tycoon Peter Brant, who paid $18 million for the 1,400-acre tract which he transformed into luxury residential community called Conyers Farm, according to Bloomberg.

“The house has the rarest and best moldings,” Zelinsky said. “It’s really amazing. If you go in and look at the detail in that house, it’s unbelievable.”

The house has seven bedrooms, six baths, and two half-baths. There is also a formal dining room, library, master suite, eat-in kitchen, and several family rooms. The ceilings were designed to be high to accommodate large paintings.

The house is listed by Scott Elwell and Beverley Toepke at Douglas Elliman.
