Mary Tyler Moore’s Greenwich CT home “Harkaway” has recently come on the market. And like Mary herself – it’s glorious.

From the Sotheby’s real estate listing: “A captivating retreat in the heart of Greenwich with a storied pedigree, this distinguished Georgian Colonial was home to the late Mary Tyler Moore. Following a meandering stream to Oakley Pond, the long, gated drive leads to the quietly secluded stone house on 7.37 acres of private, sweeping grounds landscaped by Janice Parker and buffered by 5 acres of conservation. Exquisitely expanded and renovated, the 13,825 sq ft floor plan designed by architect Stephen Wang features 2,000+ sq ft primary suite with dual baths, dressing rooms and generous closets. Separate 1-bdrm apartment with kitchen and bath above 3-bay garage. Exceptional amenities include 23′ x 23′ glass conservatory, gym with spa facilities: jacuzzi, steam shower & sauna, elevator, 65-ft pool with outdoor fireplace.”

Could this entry with the stone facade and red door be any more classic? Clearly – Mary and her husband Dr. Robert Levine created a warm and loving home for themselves. Did you see the Being Mary Tyler Moore documentary on HBO? She was a complicated and less sunny individual than the public face we all came to know and love from her characters like Laura Petrie or Mary Richards. But – we’re here to talk about real estate.

Just a lovely “little corner” for the grand piano. I don’t know if she played but likely someone in their circle did. I wrote a post here about decorating around pianos.

I love the mix of modern and artistic furnishings in this paneled library/billiards room. The rug looks like Stark carpet’s diamond sisal with a leather banding.

The kitchen itself isn’t really to my taste but the integration of the sitting/dining areas with the classic red plaids is so warm and comfy.

How amazing is this conservatory! It reminds me a little of the green conservatory in the drama series Ordeal by Innocence which was set in an English country home.

And there’s the lady herself gracing the 2nd floor landing. Again – nice mix of old and new with the ancestor portraits.

I’m thinking this is the primary bedroom. A nice size – but still comfortable. As an update I’d reface the fireplace wall with millwork versus the marble. And clean up the fussiness of the window treatments.

We really see the scale of the conservatory here.

Given the location and the quality of the property – the nearly $22MIL+ price tag seems eminently reasonable.

There’s plenty more photos on the real estate listing.
I think regardless of the size of the home – there’s a lot of classic details here to take inspiration from. I’d love to hear your thoughts on this gracious home.

  3. I enjoyed taking a break from the morning to swoon over both “Harkaway” and “Burklyn Hall.” The details in these colonial revival homes are spectacular- classic American style never goes out of style – Thank you for sharing!

  4. An elegant home with lovely proportions – hope the next owners don’t do much more than change out the kitchen backsplash; everything else is so well done and timeless. The portrait was painted by John Solie.
