The opening scene in the trailer for the film “And So it Goes” shows a driveway flanked by stone entry gates and tall trees in a pastoral setting. At the driveway’s horizon line is an ivy-covered Colonial home peeking through the tunnel of trees. Heading up the driveway in a convertible is Oren Little, played by Michael Douglas, and his destination is a real-life Greenwich home that is currently for sale.
Listed for $10.75 million, the home at 131 Pecksland Road had its brush with fame in the 2014 film, which also stars Diane Keaton and was directed by Rob Reiner. It’s not the home’s only connection to notable names. According to the listing, the home was designed by J. Alden and Quentin Twachtman, a brotherly architectural team who Cottages & Gardens magazine notes “designed about two dozen rather stately homes in and around Greenwich.” The duo are the sons of American impressionist painter, John Henry Twachtman, whose famous work “Arques-la-Bataille” is displayed in the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
