Upon entering the historic mansion of Semloh Farm, the property on which the club was built, one’s eyes are drawn instantly to the massive French doors, which are swung open to reveal the crown jewel of outdoor spaces, The Stanwich Club patio. Upon reaching and setting foot on the patio, one is instantly struck by the multitude of spaces that exist throughout the outdoor space—so many different spaces, in fact, that when members and guests are asked by club staff which one they’d like to use, it’s not an easy decision.
The patio alone has two different fireplaces where one can relax. The more formal fireplace encompasses club chairs and couch that overlook the golf course’s 18th green, which is just feet away, and the Long Island Sound. The second fireplace, or firepit, is on the lower level of the patio, providing a more private space to gather with friends, yet still feel the energy of the upper patio.
The main space of the patio is both spacious and inviting, with each seat providing views of the golf course and the Sound. Off the main patio is a sunken lower Terrace that separates parties but keeps everyone close enough to all of the action.
On chillier days, the imported, custom 6x3 granite pavers with 4” bluestone wall caps contain radiant heat and a drop-down screen that allows parties to flow into the outdoor space. The outside bar has enough space to hold people three deep for socializing or watching the big game on the flat-screen television. After one enjoys watching the sun set over the golf course, uplighting that is built into the patio stone highlights its elegance.
The patio itself affords an incredible ease of use, with dedicated power for hosting multiple entertainment options. Built-in, quick-disconnect propane outlets throughout the patio offer ultimate flexibility when cooking for members and guests.
The Veranda, which provides the greatest views of the golf course and Long Island Sound, offers another fireplace and three comfortable and private areas for gathering.
