About 91 Sergio Franchi Dr

It is truly rare to find a home that embodies the essence of the owner. Upon entering the glorious 200-acre Stonington, Connecticut estate of world-renowned tenor, Sergio Franchi, one is immediately enveloped in its warmth, charm, and elegance. You can feel the legacy of Franchi, who produced 25 albums, sang at the White House for President Reagan, and appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show more than 40 times. Over the years, the Franchi's entertained at this estate on a grand scale, welcoming dignitaries, entertainers, politicians, friends, and family. To this day, Franchi’s wife stages concerts in his honor on the grounds for thousands of his fans. As you walk through the property, graced with mature trees, you can almost hear the sounds of opera rising over the rolling fields and open pastures surrounded by hand-stacked stone walls. The beautifully maintained custom-built home is one of several buildings on the property. The main house is a 6,300 square-foot, slate-roofed Colonial with seven bedrooms and stunning spaces including a formal dining room with stained glass windows and hand painted wallpaper by Zuber (the same wallpaper that First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy used when she redecorated the White House), a massive country kitchen with a walk-in China closet and black and white checkerboard flooring, a large sunroom with an interior pool and an expansive slate patio perfect for al fresco entertaining. Come fall in love with this very special property.
