88 Cedar Cliff Road — Riverside, Conn.
Have you ever wondered what a real-life Barbie Dream House might look like? This has to be as close as it gets.
The $25 million mansion, which includes a portion of the original 1928 home, is something most people can only conjure up in a dream. Riverside’s 1.77-acres property sits right along the Long Island Sound, offering a perfect setting for the exquisite exterior. Vines climb the outside of the house, while its stone overlay brings a sense of traditional Victorian elements.
The inside of the home offers just the right amount of dreamy characteristics as the exterior, with a twinge of modernity. Pendant lights hang in various rooms, with large, open windows and high ceilings, offering an abundance of natural light. There’s space for an in-home gym, entertainment theater, and built-in shelves for a library room straight out of Beauty and the Beast.
Checkered-tile floors and spiral staircase add a sense of uniqueness to the grand entry hall, making any guest feel like they’ve just stepped into a dignified home.
Outside, two arches display an opening to the backyard and in-ground pool. It’s the right amount of grandiose elements for a royal-esque promenade.
