With an indoor lacrosse field that could be yours.

A Greenwich, Conn., compound with its own indoor basketball court and lacrosse turf is on the market for $10.85 million. On 2.47 acres, the compound includes a 20,200-square-foot, seven-bedroom, eight-bath house built in 2006. The home has a large foyer with a black-and-white limestone floor that leads to a classically designed living room with 14-foot ceilings. The ground floor also includes a library, a solarium and a formal dining room, according to Robin Kencel at Houlihan Lawrence Greenwich, who has the listing. The fun and games start on the third floor, which has an 18-seat multitiered movie room, a billiard room and another games room. The lower level sports the indoor basketball court, the 53-foot by 20-foot indoor lacrosse turf, a sauna, a mirrored exercise room leading outdoors to a hot tub and a 5,000-bottle, temperature-controlled wine cellar. For yet more recreation, the backyard has a heated in-ground pool and a 2,700-square-foot guesthouse with a pool side lounge, two apartments and a three-car garage. The sellers are Joseph Zimmel, a consultant and former investment banker, and Alison Blood, also a former Wall Street executive, who is now working in the nonprofit sector.



Attention Connecticut Residents: Watch Out For Tire Irons To The Face

Among the many reasons typically cited by hedge fund managers who choose to run their business out of Connecticut instead of New York are: 1. The room to stretch their shit out 2. Proximity to the Long Island Sound 3. Convenience for those already living in the area. Some probably also believe that the Fairfield County is slightly safer than New York City. That you're not going to get jumped walking out of the office or beaten with a tire iron because you messed with someone's man or woman. OR WILL YOU?
