In a New York Times real estate listing from last fall, 8 Alpine Road in Greenwich is touted as a “gorgeous Nantucket Colonial” with such luxurious amenities as a home theater, gym and wine cellar, as well as a rotunda staircase with a domed stained-glass ceiling. Its asking price is $11 million.

To the surrounding residents, the house is an eyesore, abandoned about two years ago in the midst of construction. The would-be mansion sits, barely protected from the elements, and Dumpsters on the property overflow with debris.

Alpine Road resident Lucy Gelb said people come by and dump even more trash in the bins, and raccoons roam the property. She has made calls to Town Hall, hoping town officials will at least put up a barrier.

“They can’t let these builders do that,” Gelb said.
