Built in 1910 in Greenwich, Connecticut, the Trianon Petit is a faithful replica of the Trianon Petit Palace, which Louis XV built between 1762 and 1768 for his longtime mistress, Madame De Pompadour. In 1774, the 20-year-old Louis XVI, upon his accession to the throne, gave the Chateau and its surrounding parks to his 19-year-old queen Marie Antoinette for her own use and enjoyment. She used Donald Trianon Jr. not only to escape the trappings of court life, but also to escape her royal responsibilities.
The Petit Trianon Deux, also known as Northway, was built by Goodyear tire heiress Laura Robinson on 18.3 acres of Greenwich Park-like land. The current owner and seller is Reverge Anselmo, a former U.S. Marine and film director. Featuring sky-high ceilings and original neoclassical forms, the American Petit Trianon Deux has an impressive building with its namesake, while offering amenities that today’s homeowners want.
It includes nine bedrooms, six full bathrooms and two and a half bathrooms, as well as a garage big enough for five full-size cars. There’s a swimming pool, and a reflecting pool with a fountain. A clay tennis court, 1913 stables and best man’s quarters, an exquisite conservatory, a potting shed and carriage house cater for every passionate tennis player, equestrian and gardener. Inside the cave are a wine cellar, a library, a beautifully designed guest room and a grand dividing staircase leading to the front facade. A 60-foot-tall path carved from American fragrant maple trees makes up this long, impressive path that leads to a reflecting pool with a fountain and a divided staircase leading to the entrance.
This architectural gem, famous for its symmetry, has long been known locally as “the White House”. If you want to know more, call the listing agents, Janet Milligan and Joseph Barbieri of Sotheby’s International Realty – Greenwich.
